The Milestone Presence of Indigenous Design at Australian Fashion Week Is a Reminder of Fashion’s Power

Australian Fashion Week started in a way it never has before—with a Welcome to Country, a ceremony held by First Nations elders, welcoming guests to Gadigal land. For the first time, a smoking ceremony— with burning eucalyptus leaves and a traditional dance by the Muggera dance company—was accompanied by fashion, with three Indigenous models, all newly signed to IMG, wearing designs from First Nations labels.

Wearing a jumpsuit from Aarli, wearable art from Penny Evans, a Ngarru Miimi dress, and scarves from Rujaki designs, models encircled the smoking leaves—a powerful visual symbol that signaled the milestone moment of change this

Why a brand might pay for your next design vacation

After the school years, field trips tend to fall out of the average adult’s life. That is, unless you’re an interior designer. A number of brands in the home industry offer designers experiential and educational (and often lavish) trips. While it’s nothing new for a brand to invite designers to factory tours or experience centers to get a feel for its product in situ, flying clients overseas for a week of extravagant adventures requires a different level of planning and investment.

Kravet, for one, has taken some of its top clients on trips to Paris and Italy that include private

A Jewelry Line Inspired by a Design Family’s Heirlooms

For more than three decades, the Italian designer Ilaria Icardi resisted following in the footsteps of her father, Umberto Icardi, by becoming a jeweler. He and his brothers, Giuseppe and Piero, set up their family-run fine jewelry business, Emmeti, in Valenza in the late 1960s and made precious gold pieces for private clients and, eventually, bigger brands such as Tiffany & Co. Valenza, a small industrial town in the north of Italy surrounded by undulating, verdant terrain that the region promotes as Little Tuscany, has been renowned for its goldsmithery for centuries, but home held little appeal for Icardi. “My
