Fashion social enterprise Magpie Goose pops up in Brisbane with a killer collab launch
Real talk – we fell in love with Northern Territory-based brand Magpie Goose when we first wrote about them way back in 2017. The social enterprise’s kick-ass prints and killer ethos make for a winning combination, which is why we were stoked to discover that the gang is heading to Brisbane for a series of cheeky pop-ups and a very special collaboration launch.
The Magpie Goose pop-ups will be taking place at Avid Kitchen & Garden on Friday February 15 (from 3:00–8:00 pm) and Saturday February 16 (from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm). Shoppers will be able to catch a glimpse of brand-new prints from Borroloola (Gulf of Carpentaria) artists Nancy McDinny and Stewart Hoosan, as well as an exclusive collaboration with Jinibara artists (Woodford/Maleny/Glass House Mountains country), which made its debut at Woodford Folk Festival late last year. Each carefully considered design tells a story and looks damn good while doing it – from contemporary life to traditional bush foods, dreaming and country, a whole host of themes are represented in these clothes.
The Magpie Goose pop-ups also give you a chance to hear from some of the amazing Jinibara artists behind the designs on offer – Uncle Noel Blair and Jason Murphy will be appearing on Friday and Saturday respectively to talk about their featured designs. This pop-up is just one small example of the tangible efforts that the Magpie Goose team makes to connect people through art – the brand’s social enterprise roots and commitment to celebrating Aboriginal people and culture make it so much more than just a label.
