Indigenous Models Launch Intl.

For the first time in history, 12 Indigenous models will walk in one of the world’s biggest fashion weeks.

An amazing opportunity for 12 Australian Indigenous Models to make history and walk in the biggest fashion week in the Southern Hemisphere, as part of the Circles Project, hosted by Designer Vanessa Moe,

SPFW is the 5th largest fashion week in the world, behind New York, London, Paris and Milan and have a reach of 5 million of people globally.

For some models, this is not only a blessing for their careers, but some have never been overseas.

‘‘It’s amazing; it’s a big achievement and a big statement to represent my community in Shepparton and Victoria as a whole,” Merinda Dryden Miss NAIDOC 2016. She will be the first Australian Aboriginal woman to walk the runway at the fashion show and she is beyond thrilled.

Terri Smith Owner and Director of Sydney’s newest, first & only Creative Talent Agency catering to Indigenous, Pacific & Ethnic Talent, will be representing the girls, and ensuring they have a safe and enjoyable trip.

This is a fantastic opportunity for our Indigenous girls to feature on such a huge international platform to represent one of the oldest living cultures on earth.

We will be very grateful for any donations on any level to help fund these talented artists to reach for the stars! Not only will it give our talented indigenous artists the opportunity to showcase to such a large international market but it could also open so many doors and opportunities to help path future careers for these indigenous beauties.

Help bring this dream to reality for them! Thank you for your support! Sao Paulo Fashion Week dates: Aug 27 - Sept 1st 2017
