Short Documentary

Australian outback milliner, Flic Brown has always had a passion for hats. Even in her early days as a jillaroo, she was known in the Kimberley for her trademark Texan Stetson. With the humblest of starts making hats for jillaroo friends her work is inspired by the vivid colours and textures of the Kimberley in remote north western Australia. Her one off creations are wearable works of art made from materials literally picked out of the red dust, her creations are unlike anything the world has ever seen.
Unexpectedly, a cancer diagnosis and a chance meeting would present Flic with a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. Out of crisis, comes hope.
Flic Brown is about to reach one of global fashion’s highest peaks: a solo show at New York Fashion week.
From an exploration of intertwining connections to place and inspiration to the huge logistical hurdles and high pressures of an international fashion show, we travel alongside a girl from the outback as she walks onto the world stage.
Can she turn this opportunity of a lifetime into her tour de force?
