CAMILLA X WARLU LAUNCHH

COOEE ART GALLERY, BONDI BEACH

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - - INSIDER -

BONDI’S Cooee Gallery was the per­fect lo­ca­tion for fash­ion de­signer Camilla Franks to show­case her new Warlu cap­sule col­lec­tion.

Camilla worked with indige­nous artists from the War­lukurlangu Artists Abo­rig­i­nal Cor­po­ra­tion, about five hours north­west of Alice Springs, to cre­ate three dis­tinct prints for the stun­ning range.

Art­works that in­spired the prints are on dis­play at the gallery for the next fort­night with the launch also serv­ing as open­ing for the ex­hi­bi­tion.

“To fi­nally see the part­ner­ship come to fruition, it is a pinch your­self mo­ment,” Franks said. “The dream with my prints is we drive re­ally im­por­tant con­ver­sa­tions around art and tra­di­tions and cul­ture and en­vi­ron­ment.”

Indige­nous dancers greeted guests on ar­rival, per­form­ing tra­di­tional dance for the likes of Nikki Phillips, Jules Robin­son, Fleur Egan and Jimmy Nig­gles. JONATHON MO­RAN
