Late June I made my way to the Victoria and Albert Museum in Kensington, London, having accepted an invitation from mother and daughter stellar PR consultants, Shiloh PR. The Museum appointed the duo to support the launch of Africa Fashion, which they did with absolute class.
The event saw the elite of African Fashion in attendance from Designer Ozwald Boateng to Editor in Chief British Vogue Edward Enniful, alongside some of the most passionate African media and influencers from Writer Bernadine Evaristo to Actor Charles Venn, amongst others.
Whether you are a fashionista, whether you are intrigued by African Culture or Fashion (or not) this exhibition is a heart warming eye opener that displays ground breaking and iconic designers, photographers and creatives of the African states.
Walk through the V&A and explore the ladies and menswear, textiles, arts and music. Stop by the shop and take in the jewellery, handbags, and books.
It’s a forceful tool that will educate and confirm the influence that Africa has across the world, and I so hope that schools, colleges, universities and education outlets will book tours to the Exhibition. This is an enriching experience, which continues at The V&A until 16th April 2023 – so don’t leave it until Black History Month.
