Country to Couture 2022

Participating in the 2022 Country to Couture event for the first time was beyond awesome for Juluwarlu Art Group! It marked our debut in this prestigious showcase in Darwin, where we proudly presented our Juluwarlu fabrics transformed into t-shirts, skirts, dresses, and bomber jackets.

The excitement didn't end there; we felt immense pride and honor to be recognised in Vogue Australia and ABC News. Being featured in such prominent platforms was a deadly result to all our hard work.

At Juluwarlu Art Group, we prioritize the well-being and aspirations of our artists, community, and people. Every sale from our merchandise ensures artists receive royalties, and all proceeds are reinvested to support our collective journey of preserving and flourishing our heritage. Together, we continue to create a positive impact on the lives of our community, driven by the power of art and culture.

Thank you Indigenous Fashion Projects and DAAFF - we had so much fun! Browse a gallery of our line below.
