CFS 2023: Gwarli Nangala
Joanne (Gwarli) Nangala is a Pilbara based Aboriginal artist who has branched out from canvas painting into the medium of textile and fashion in collaboration with EMMC.
“These are the stories of my ancestors and their relationship with the land.'“
Her début self-titled fashion collection features artwork that depicts aspects of her Aboriginal heritage and culture. With a vibrant colour palette and unique design, the textile is the star of the show; paired with elegant, yet simplistic silhouettes to accentuate the story behind the fashion.
