Regional Indigenous Fashion and Textile Showcase 2017

On sale now

Ticket sales to this event will close at midnight on Saturday, 27th May.

RIFTS is a home grown, grassroots community based event, which has for the last 5 years, created opportunities for Indigenous, Torres Strait Islander's and this year, Pacific Islander designers, to showcase their unique and diverse styles of wearable art.  

Especially note worthy with this event is that all the models are of indigenous and Torres Strait Islander decent.  Each year the event welcomes new talent eager to showcase their individual style and creativity for fashion.  

Come and meet the local talent and enjoy an evening of fashion fun.
