We are featured in Vogue!
We are thrilled to be featured in this months edition of Vogue. The world-renowned fashion magazine has produced an excellent feature article on indigenous Australian fashion and the pioneering labels and designers that have taken the fashion world by storm.
Buluuy Mirri and our head designer Colleen get a special mention in this issue and an image of our vegan leather dress called Bully (black) Dreaming is a centrepiece of the article.
Colleen Tighe-Johnson is an Australian Aboriginal fashion designer who uses her talents to harness the spirit of her ancestors and revive Gomeroi Dreaming Stories through her label, Buluuy Mirrii (Black Star in her Gomeroi language).
Colleen’s work creates cultural story within her designs – unique commissioned Gomeroi artworks are printed onto luxury fabrics and used to design one-off garments showcased on her runways. Her models are drawn from the not-for-profit Buluuy Mirrii Youth Development program, taking young Aboriginal people from their home towns to the international stage.
Our Latest Collection
My Honey Ant Collection tells the story,
of the Queen Honey Ant.
She is everything to her colony,
without her their is no life.
Our Honey Ants carry honey sacks to feed the
weaker ants that fall away, nurturing them
back into the colony.
The story of the Honey Ant mirrors the
matriarch within our tribe, nurturing and
teaching her people until it is time for them
to transition into the next stage of life.
