Kensington and Chelsea College Exhibition Shines the Spotlight on African Fashion
Kensington and Chelsea College’s innovative fashion department is hosting a stunning new exhibition exploring African fashion.
‘Fashion Africa’ will be running at the College’s Chelsea Centre for three weeks starting from February 9th, and throws the spotlight on non-western designers and garments using African textiles.
The exhibition was inspired by a project undertaken by the College’s UAL Diploma fashion students to produce contemporary garments using traditional heritage fabric, in particular African ‘bark clothe’.
The students were also supported throughout the project by two established designers, Eldimaa Fashion and Gnostic Jungle.
The exhibition will bring to the forefront many of the beautiful garments and fashion photographs produced for the project.
Guests will have an opportunity to meet the budding designers in a special Private View taking place on Thursday February 12, from 6pm-8pm, at College’s Chelsea Centre Gallery, Hortensia Road SW10 0QS.
