Celebrating Indigenous Excellence: Lisa Fatnowna’s Journey at Australian Fashion Week

Celebrating Indigenous Excellence:

Amidst the glitz and glamour of Australian Fashion Week (AFW), one name shines bright – Lisa Fatnowna. A familiar face in the modelling scene, Fatnowna, a proud Indigenous woman, is making waves in the fashion industry with her unique style and infectious enthusiasm.

As the curtains rose on this month’s Australian Fashion Week, Style Up caught up with Fatnowna to delve into the captivating world of fashion after her extended Christmas break.

“Resetting my look was essential for me,” Fatnowna shared with Style Up. “Going back to my natural hair color, refreshing my portfolio with new digitals and comp cards – it’s all about feeling rejuvenated and ready for the runway.”

For Fatnowna, Australian Fashion Week is more than just a showcase of couture; it’s a celebration of diversity and connection. “I thrive on the energy of the week, meeting new faces, and reconnecting with friends,” she emphasized. “The excitement fuels my passion for the industry.”

No stranger to the AFW runway, Fatnowna’s journey has been nothing short of remarkable. From her debut in 2021 to her stellar performance in 2023, walking in multiple shows each year, her star continues to ascend.

In 2024, Fatnowna’s schedule is packed with runway appearances, including a highly anticipated walk for Liandra, a female-led First Nations fashion brand. Reflecting on her admiration for Liandra’s sustainable approach, Fatnowna expressed her excitement to represent the brand and its values on the catwalk.

Beyond the glitz and glamour, Fatnowna remains grounded in her mission to inspire the next generation of Indigenous models and creatives. “Growing up, I lacked role models in the industry,” she confessed. “I hope my journey inspires others to pursue their dreams fearlessly.”

Looking ahead, Fatnowna’s ambitions extend beyond the runway. “Traveling is a big goal of mine,” she revealed. “As an Indigenous woman from a small town, this journey is a testament to our resilience and presence in the world.”

As Australian Fashion Week unfolds, Lisa Fatnowna’s presence illuminates the runway, embodying resilience, diversity, and Indigenous excellence. With each step, she paves the way for a more inclusive and vibrant fashion industry.
