Rhiannon Clarke -

Some of the fashionistas wore street-favourite Clothing the Gaps to attend various runway shows.

However these were not the usual pieces you'd see in stores.

The Ikuntji artist travelled from Haast's Bluff to Sydney to attend runway shows.

They are the first art centre established for women of the Western Desert art movement.

The Ikuntji show marks a historic moment for the art world as it will be the first time an art centre has presented a show at Australian Fashion Week.
