Fashioning Africa

Fashioning Africa is the third national Object Journeys partnership project and will be led by Brighton Museum and Gallery and two community curators.

Forming part of the much larger Fashioning Africa project it looks to address the lack of post-1960’s African fashion and textiles in many museum collections by putting together two displays of newly acquired pieces alongside more historical textiles from the Brighton and British Museums collections.
