Noongar Pop Fashion Documentary

Narrogin

In 2014, CAN partnered with Narrogin Senior High School to create a community arts project for Noongar girls in years 8-10. The program used fashion as a medium to intertwine cultural traditions with contemporary craft work. Workshops included up-cycling, fashion design, dressmaking, eco-dyeing, weaving, photography and dance.

After completing their beautiful handmade wares, the students took part in a professional fashion shoot with photographer Simon Pynt. As well as providing them with new skills and unleashing their creativity, students said the project increased their confidence and motivation to attend school and strengthened their pride in culture.

This video, made by the talented Noongar Dandjoo film students from Curtin University, showcases the results of the Noongar Pop Culture Fashion project.
