Fashion Week ended last week with an emphatic exclamation of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander excellence.

The First Nations Fashion + Design (FNFD) closing runway highlighted designers from right across Australia.

FNFD celebrates independent Indigenous designers and supports their growth and development in the fashion industry.

Supported by THE ICONIC, First Nations Fashion + Design wowed a packed crowd on Friday night, with female musicians and a primarily female line-up of designers as a way to explore the matriarchal structure of First Nations' culture.

And while the event marked the end of a week in which fashion was front and centre, it's also a new beginning for First Nations fashion.

For Sydneysiders, Election Day this Saturday, May 21, will also mark the official opening of the Edit Collection and First Nations Fashion + Design pop-up store in Chatswood on Sydney's Lower North Shore. It will be open for a month.

Available will be the designs on display at Friday's show.
