I always talk about events happening in London or in Lagos so for a change here is something for those of you who are state-side! Indianapolis to be precise.
Majestic African Textiles are being showcased at the Indianapolis Museum of Art with an array of royal and prestigious garments on display. The pieces have intricate detailing and embellishment which is often in traditional African fabrics of the highest quality. The collection is said to consist of over 60 pieces from across North and sub-Saharan Africa.
I can spot some aso-oke even from the preview images so I am sold and would really love to see this.
So if you happen to be in the area and go, drop us a line to let us know what you thought.
