United Kingdom, London, Africa Fashion, V&A, until Sunday 16 April 2023
On now until Sunday 16 April 2023
Spanning iconic mid-20th century to contemporary creatives through photographs, textiles, music and the visual arts, Africa Fashion explores the vitality and global impact of a fashion scene as dynamic and varied as the continent itself.
Starting with the African independence and liberation years that sparked a radical political and social reordering across the continent, the exhibition will look to explore how fashion, alongside music and the visual arts, formed a key part of Africa’s cultural renaissance, laying the foundation for today’s fashion revolution. Across contemporary couture, ready-to-wear, made-to-order and street-style, the V&A will also seek to offer a close-up look at the new generation of ground-breaking designers, collectives, stylists and fashion photographers working in Africa today.
