MEET THE CREATIVES

PETER FARMER DESIGNS

Peter Farmer is a world-renowned Artist and Balga local, who’s work aims to break down barriers and forge a pathway for Aboriginal Artists and Creatives. Having worked with brands such as Jimmy Choo and Woodside, his career as a visual story teller has seen the creation of significant pieces across Australia and in 2008 & 2018 Peter was awarded Perth NAIDOC Visual Artist of the year.

Peter Farmer proudly upholds the culture and traditions of his Father and Mother’s land and country, and seeks to empower future generations to uphold their heritage and pursue their passions.

Peter Farmer has lead the production of the Community Silk Art Project on display during the event, and has also created a selection of bespoke fashion pieces to be featured during the Fashion Runway.

Nikkita's Art

Nikkita Passmore’s collection is inspired by her deep respect and connection to her Indigenous culture. Late last year after re-connecting with her Uncle and Aunty Peter and Miranda Framer, she was encouraged to take her artwork to the next level and explore all avenues of creativity. Her Showcase collection is a result of the passion she has for art and fashion, and her ideas coming to life.

Nikkita’s Background is Maori & Aboriginal. Her connection to culture is inherited from her father who was a proud Wongutha Yamatiji Man with strong kingship ties to his Noongar families and Country. Nikkita’s father taught her how to be proud of who she is, and her collection is in honour of this.

Explore a collection of Nikkita's Art hand-painted shoes and clothing pieces on showcase during the Fashion Runway and available for purchase at the event.

buffie creative

Buffie Coruna’s artwork is a whole hearted expression of herself. With a love for painting, drawing and experimenting in a variety of mediums, she believes art is one of the greatest tools to help with mental and emotional challenges that individuals may face. Her artwork is influenced by her spirituality, culture and life experiences, and she uses art as a platform for storytelling.

“We all have a story to tell and art is one of the most creative forms to share our stories”

Explore a range of Buffie Creative's accessories featured on the Fashion Runway and available for purchase at the event.
