Join Adrian Norris and Edwina Forest – the talented duo behind one of Australia’s hottest fashion labels Aje – for an intimate Q&A hosted by Alison Kubler at the Art Gallery of South Australia.

Founded in 2007, Aje was created around artisan techniques of hand-looming, weaving and beading to produce effortless everyday essentials and statement occasion pieces. Loved by the likes of Madonna, Kate Moss and Pheobe Tonkin, the label has built a huge following both nationally and internationally.

To celebrate their 10-year anniversary, Norris and Forest have worked from the archives of one of Australia’s most prolific artists, Brett Whiteley, to create an inimitable Resort 18/19 collection. Together with Wendy Whiteley and the Brett Whiteley Studios, Brett’s artworks have been re-imagined into stand-out garments that will be shown on the AFF18 runway on Super Saturday: Acler & Aje. Hear them talk about this incredible opportunity at this event, hosted by curator and journalist Alison Kubler.

Especially for this Q&A, the Art Gallery of South Australia will be bringing an artwork by Whiteley out of the archives.

Seating will be strictly limited, so we recommend getting in early to avoid missing out!
