FASHION CITIES AFRICA

| Exhibition | Tropenmuseum, The Netherlands | 2017-2018

Fashion Cities Africa unfolds the dazzling diversity of the fashion scene in four major African cities: Casablanca (Morocco), Johannesburg (South Africa), Nairobi (Kenya) and Lagos (Nigeria).

The concept inverts the traditional relationship of observer and the observed in a typical exhibition. The main visitor circulation on the raised catwalk gives visitors a unique perspective, while the mannequins and fashion objects placed as if watching the fashion show. The backdrop is composed of city- and fashion fabrics made with perforated timber panels and blocks.

A critical, contemporary and dynamic fusion of fashion, art & urbanism from the African perspective in a new global cultural paradigm through material, form & media into the fabric of city life.

Fashion Cities Africa will move to the Afrikamuseum in Berg en Dal, Netherlands in the summer of 2019.
