Africa Fashion | A Brooklyn Museum Film ft. Nana Brew Hammond & Eli Fola



Celebrating the outstanding creativity, ingenuity, and global impact of African fashions from the start of the independence era to today, this presentation features over 180 works including fashion, music, film, visual art and photography, as well as textiles and jewelry from our Arts of Africa collection. More than 40 designers representing 20 African countries illuminate how fashion, alongside the visual arts and music, played a pivotal role in Africa’s cultural renaissance during its liberation years.

Plan your visit to Africa Fashion through October 22.

Africa Fashion is created by the V&A—touring the world. The lead sponsor is Bank of America with major support provided by ALÁRA. Special thanks to OkayAfrica / Okayplayer and Nataal, media sponsors for this exhibition.
