V&A Announces New Exhibition, Africa Fashion, Opening June 2022


V&A Announces Africa Fashion Exhibition

GRoW is honored to serve as the lead supporter of this summer 2022 exhibition that celebrates the vitality, innovation, and global impact of mid-20th century and contemporary fashion across the African continent.

Africa Fashion will display more than 250 objects, textiles, and photographs from the V&A's collection as well as the personal archives of influential fashion creatives from across the continent. Curated by Dr. Christine Checinska, the V&A's Curator of African and African Diaspora Fashion, the exhibition examines: how fashion, visual arts and music were key to Africa's cultural renaissance; the impact of radical political and social transformation during African independence and liberation on the fashion industry; and today's groundbreaking creative individuals, collectives, and institutions. Africa Fashion aims to foreground the voices and perspectives of leading African creatives while acknowledging the vast and rich breadth of African histories, cultures, and, consequently, fashions.
