When Melbourne-based designer Corina Muir couldn’t find the right sustainable clothing for her baby daughter, she decided to start her own clothing range, Amber Days – and her Indigenous designs are now in demand worldwide.

The Yorta Yorta and Boonwurrung woman talks about the importance of ethical clothing that is a collaborative effort with other Aboriginal women. She's also now started a pop-up store in Melbourne's North till early August (54 Errol Street).

Corina is all about community and wants her business to be a platform for change. She wants to see First Nation's fashion taken to the wider world. Amber Days was seen on the runway during Melbourne Fashion Week earlier this year.

"Corina had an idea and the passion for her business and she looked to IBA for support to build business acumen and financial literacy skills," said David Deo, IBA's Senior Business Development Officer.

“She is an inspiration to women who want to make a difference...In Corina's case, we see someone who's always trying to grow, so at the end of the day, her success is our success as well.”
