FASHIONS OF MULTICULTURAL AUSTRALIA
'Fashion is a common denominator among all cultures and a catalyst for social cohesion'. Fashions of Multicultural Australia (FOMA) is a first-ever national initiative that will integrate cultures and foster social cohesion through the universally binding industry that is fashion.
The FOMA runway show will feature couture originating from some of Australia’s most prominent and unique cultural communities. Attendees can expect to witness both contemporary and traditional fashion items originating from nations such as Ireland, Lebanon, Vietnam, Russia, Peru, Philippines, Chile, and Indigenous Australia.
“Fashions of Multicultural Australia, or FOMA, is an excellent initiative seeking to increase integration and understanding between cultures and to help foster greater social cohesion through the uniquely universal industry of fashion. The Republic of Korea is exceptionally honoured to be able to present Korean fashion alongside this collection of brilliant designers from around the world and would like to thank all the designers for their participation in this multicultural event.
The fashion industry is one of the most vibrant and diverse industries in the world. It is a sector that celebrates creativity and beauty whilst also generating endless opportunities in terms of global exchanges in both trade and investment. FOMA is representative of Australia’s greater dedication to the ideals of multiculturalism and should be congratulated for its contributions to greater cultural understanding”.
