AFRICAN-PRINT FASHION NOW! A STORY OF TASTE, GLOBALIZATION, AND STYLE

October 5, 2018 - 11:00 AM to April 28, 2019 - 6:00 PM
Mint Museum Randolph

This exhibition introduces visitors to a dynamic and diverse dress tradition and the increasingly interconnected fashion worlds that it inhabits: "popular" garments created by local seamstresses and tailors across the continent; international runway fashions designed by Africa’s newest generation of couturiers; and boundary-breaking, transnational and youth styles favored in Africa's urban centers. All feature the colorful, boldly designed, manufactured cotton textiles that have come to be known as "African-print cloth." The curatorial team includes Suzanne Gott, Kristyne Loughran, Betsy Quick, and Leslie Rabine.
