Runway To Support First Nations Peoples

7/4/2023

Runway To Support First Nations Peoples
Runway To Support First Nations Peoples

At Australian Fashion Week, we walked the first solo Indigenous designer runway with Ngali. To pair with their ready-to-wear pieces, Ngali collaborated with First Nations artists to transform our boots into limited-edition works of art.

In celebration of NAIDOC Week, we’re silent auctioning each pair of limited-edition boots and donating all proceeds to our long-standing partners, Children’s Ground. An organisation dedicated to creating an empowered future for the next generation of First Nations children.

“The first show I attended of NGALI, myself and fellow guests were presented with eucalyptus leaves from Wurundjeri Woi-wurrung elder Aunty Joy as a welcome to country, the inspiration behind this design came from this moment.”

Josh handpainted Selenium 2 and Jacanas Ecru with eucalyptus leaves in tonal green with pops of red and yellow.

Please consider these a work of art rather than functional shoes. Due to the nature of paint and creasing leather, the artwork will deteriorate with wear. A sealant and waterproof spray have been applied however, the artwork will not last normal wear and tear.
