African- Print Fashion Now! Exhibition, Charlotte
African- Print Fashion Now! is currently exhibiting at the Mint Museum Randolph till April 2019 in Charlotte, North Carolina. KIKI Clothing was honoured to be invited to be a part of this amazing presentation of African Fashion and Art.
The exhibition introduces visitors to the Indonesian and Indian roots of these distinctive cloths and to the Dutch and other European printed versions of wax resist Indonesian batiks, which appealed to late nineteenth- and early twentieth-century African consumers. This type of printed cloth became central to many “popular” fashion systems in West and Central Africa in spite of its foreign history.
