Championing First Nations design at PayPal Melbourne Fashion Festival  

Championing local talent to the world stage means showcasing the talents of First Nations designers, and Architectus is proud to be supporting this for the third consecutive year as part of the PayPal Melbourne Fashion Festival.

Alongside MPA and Slattery, our practice is supporting the PayPal Melbourne Fashion Festival First Nations Pathways Programme in collaboration with Mob in Fashion. The Emerging MOB In Fashion Runway x Fujitsu event will be held on 7 March 2024 at the Royal Exhibition Building, Wurundjeri Country. One of this year’s most highly anticipated events, the evening will see the work of the sponsored First Nations designers come to life through fashion and other design disciplines, including graphics, staging, hair and make-up.

The collection will explore visual storytelling and creative expression through the bold designs of emerging First Nations artists and designers. Curated by MOB in Fashion, this runway is a celebration of vibrant colours and artistic practice in many forms, and reveals how Indigenous artwork and a connection to culture can be transformed into wearable art. 

Principal Clients + Communications, Ruth Wilson expressed pride in our continued support for First Nations design through the Paypal Melbourne Fashion Festival.

“It’s wonderful to be able to play a part in recognising First Nations design professionals and the creatives working behind the scenes to deliver a major event which seamlessly merges the worlds of art, fashion, design, and culture. We’re looking forward to another stellar show and excited to see these multi-talented designers bring their work to life.”  Find out more about the event here.
