By building the brand of a pioneering exhibition, showcasing modest fashion and Australian Muslim women's achievements
Before modest fashion became an internationally-recognised trend, there was Faith Fashion Fusion – an exhibition put on by the Powerhouse Museum, with the vision to share the sartorial stories and achievements of Australian Muslim women.
The first of its kind in Australia, we worked with the Powerhouse Museum to design the exhibition launch and brand experience.
The intention was to create a striking, memorable series of graphic elements that would challenge stereotypical imagery of Muslim women using a mix of traditional Arabic elements and inner-Sydney street style art.

For the launch, we developed an interactive children’s activity featuring a series of interchangeable outfits based on the fashion labels seen in the exhibition.
We created a strong visual system across all areas of the exhibition space such as title walls, posters and labelling, along with the website, promotional media, and book design.
Due to the popularity of the exhibition, it toured other parts of Australia which required us to create a templated system for press ads that the local media outlets could use.
With continued success, this exhibition has featured in museums and public spaces all around Australia for five years, and will soon be debuting internationally for the first time in Indonesia and Malaysia.
