African-Print Fashion Now! The vibrant new exhibit at the Fowler

Mar 27, 2017

This weekend I had the pleasure of attending the opening of African-Print Fashion Now! - A Story of Taste, Globalization and Style. The new exhibit at the Fowler Museum is a bold and delightfully fun walkthrough of fabrics so delicious you'll want to eat them.

Take a look at some of my favorites:

And perhaps the greatest of all is this FABULOUS dress. Do you recognize it? It was designed by high schooler Kyemah Mcentyre. Take a look:


It went viral and was even featured in Cosmopolitan. Here it is in all its glory:


It was stunningly beautiful in person. As were all the pieces at the show.

This gorgeous exhibit African-Print Fashion Now opens tomorrow and runs through the end of July. Go see it at the Fowler Museum at UCLA. Free admission (you can always throw some support their way).
