African Fashion at the Victoria and Albert Museum offers a really impressive view of the vibrant contemporary design creativity emanating from Africa and African designers. It also charts the history of textiles, weaves, fashion statements and decorative wear and shows how African style has been adapted and adopted by western designers and fashionistas.

I don’t feel knowledgeable enough about fashion to give an opinion of the pieces apart from to say that they were amazing. So instead I’ll provide a gallery of the clothes which really caught my eye. I do love colour and bold statements and seeing how natural fibres and textiles are employed in a unique kind of haute couture.

African Fashion at the Victoria and Albert Museum is on show until April 2023.
