The FNFD program provides a space for cultural exploration and communication through Indigenous fashion, design and performance. Giving space to both grassroots and established artists and art collectives to further develop their skill set within a commercially viable framework, the program is fostering the next generation of artists in an already vibrant and creative space.

With a dynamic approach to mentorship, FNFD takes artists on a journey from concept all the way through to runway show and exhibition, covering all key aspects of professional development within the fashion + design process. Commencing with an Indigenous-led design brief, artists are guided through the process of product development and portfolio management, with the support and backing of University Faculties.
