First Nations Fashion + Design (FNFD) is an not-for-profit Indigenous Corporation whose core business is to support the development and sustainable growth of First Nations representation, access and growth in the fashion and design sectors.
Our aim is to provide and support Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander designers with ongoing access to platforms, economic opportunities, skills development and industry engagement through annual programming and events.
In its role as a national voice, FNFD continues to work towards the development of a self-sustaining ecosystem of First Nations fashion designers, textile artists, graphic designers, hair and makeup artists, models and events teams. Our aspirations are grounded in culture and delivered in partnership with communities across the nation.
FUTURE OF FASHION DESIGNERS
Last year with co-curation with the Powerhouse Museum on a collection called Eucalyptusdom, FNFD in 2022 brought a fashion initiative called the Future of Fashion.
The FNFD Future of Fashion (FOF) initiative creates direct access to the Australian Fashion industry.
We believe this initiative will bring two worlds together through a massive cultural and industry exchange. Through one-on-one mentoring, design, creativity, listening and learning from each other, together we will start to close the gap in fashion.
