It was while Tina was doing a community makeup course with aboriginal families and youth about five years ago that she began thinking about why there was no platform for youth from indigenous cultures, to break into the world of fashion.So she came up with the idea of setting up one herself and launched The Indigenous Runway Project in Melbourne in 2012. Its aim is to provide indigenous people including Aboriginal, Maori and other First Nation people with a stepping stone into the fashion world, with design, modelling and styling workshops.
