The Best Fest Out West

In early June, Red Ridge came out to Murweh as part of the WOW – Women of the World Festival to celebrate the lives and stories of women from the community, including the latest collection from Red Ridge Interior Queensland Ltd.

On the traditional land of the Bidjara peoples, WOW Western Queensland commenced at the Charleville racecourse with the first fashion performance of the new ready to wear collections by Red Ridge: The Label (Diamantina and Georgina), featuring artwork from Two Sisters Talking (Anpanuawa) Joyce Crombie and (Aulpunda) Jean Barr Crombie . Alongside this special collection of one-off gowns featuring the artwork from Walali Wadyana Gumbi – Strong Black Women, was the work of local artist collective Murweh Women.

Where the Diamantina collection was inspired by a rich love for Country, the Georgina collection is about the bush medicines which grow around the Georgina channel country and desert sandhills. As part of Red Ridge’s Canvas to Catwalk fashion show, the women of Murweh modelled the outfits featuring fabric painted by the locals and beautifully sewn together by Narelle Patterson.

To stay up-to-date on the 2021 series of WOW Australia events, check out the WOW Australia program and to shop the newest collections by Two Sisters Talking, visit the Red Ridge: The Label online shop.
