EXhibition in one of the most beautiful museums of Amsterdam;

Explore 4 of Africa's fashion cities through the eyes of 15 local creatives
Through the eyes of fashion experts from Casablanca, Johannesburg, Lagos, Nairobi and the Netherlands, visitors discover the lively and diverse fashion scenes that shake up the world of fashion.

FROM STREETWEAR TO COUTURE

Fashion is hot in Africa, but there is no such thing as ‘African fashion’. There are flourishing fashion scenes in several cities, ranging from streetwear to couture, and from experimental to more conventional. The people wearing, creating and studying these fashions use them to display their identity, personal tastes and background. The fashions are often deeply rooted in the city where these people live, the city that holds a mirror to them. Fashion Cities Africa showcases the diversity of fashion in four African cities – full of creativity, inspiration and entrepreneurial spirit.

After the exhibition we can have a drink and/or sandwich in the beautiful museum-cafe.
