Video: Lyn-Al Young
Introducing Lyn-Al Young - one of six designers Global Victoria showcased in the 2019 Virgin Australia Melbourne Fashion Festival as part of their International Runway Events.
Lyn-Al Young’s work is centred around a deep desire to honour her cultural heritage. The 24 year-old Gunnai, Wiradjuri, Gunditjmara and Yorta Yorta designer creates one-off pieces of wearable art.
These garments celebrate her Indigenous Australian identity through colours, themes and textures inspired by her ancestral lands. Understanding the power of the fashion-art fusion and its effect on the wearer, Young aims to imbue each of her designs with vitality and strength.
