ABOUT CORINA

A proud Yorta Yorta and Boonwurrung woman, Corina Muir is a designer, nature protector, campaigner, mother and founder of ethical children’s wear label Amber Days. Corina is passionate about the environment and people, with much of her work inspired by the Aboriginal bush, desert and sea. She aims to have minimal environmental impact and create positive change. Through her work, she regularly collaborates with Aboriginal artists to share stories through art and continue culture.

 

Driven to break down the barriers that young women of colour face, having previously worked in the areas of family violence, child protection and community organising, Corina understands the challenges many women of colour face, and uses her business as a vehicle for change. Corina aims to bring pride and connection to First People’s culture, by strengthening their voice, sense of identity, connection to Country, and revitalising culture and language.  Corina recently took part in KHT’s Blak Design Program for 2023 centring on ceramics and her work is on exhibition as part of “Fired Up: Stories Through Embers and Earth”.
