Buluuy Mirrii Garments

When you buy a Buluuy Mirrii garment, you are buying much more than a piece of clothing...

Each piece carries a unique story and spirit.

As a Gomeroi fashion designer, Colleen uses her talents to harness the spirit of her Gomeroi ancestors and revive Gomeroi Dreaming Stories through each design.

 

Her label, Buluuy Mirrii (Black Star in her Gamilaraay language) has been featured on international runways in Melbourne, New Zealand, Canada and New York Fashion Week in Spring and Fall 2017. This year she is off to the Cannes Film Festival and Paris Fashion Week, which are set to be a career highlight.

The label Buluuy Mirrii celebrates a range of Aboriginal talents.  Commissioned Gomeroi artworks are transformed into fabric patterns by a Gomeroi graphic designer, printed on luxury fabrics and sewn into one-off garments. Her label, Buluuy Mirrii promotes and revives important aspects of Gomeroi culture in each runway show, allowing the international fashion audience to learn some of Gomeroi cultural richness through specially recorded Gomeroi soundtracks and voice overs which tell the stories behind each garments.
