Africa Fashion, a new group exhibition at the Victoria and Albert Museum, London includes work by Hamidou Maiga. Africa Fashion will explore global impact of a fashion scene as dynamic and varied as the continent itself, spanning from the mid-20th century to contemporary creatives through photographs, textiles, music and the visual arts.
Foregrounding individual African voices and perspectives, the exhibition presents African fashions as a self-defining art form that reveals the richness and diversity of African histories and cultures. Africa Fashion celebrates the vitality and innovation of a selection of fashion creatives from over 20 countries, exploring the work of the vanguard in the twentieth century and the creatives at the heart of this eclectic and cosmopolitan scene today.
