United Minds, Bissap tailor shop, Doni Doni Afrowear and Farafina, among others, have prepared a special show in the African Village to reveal the origins, meaning and symbology of wax fabrics
The authenticity of African wax fabrics, their origin, as well as the meaning and symbology of their colours and designs will be the protagonists of the African fashion show that on 17th August will fill the concerts venue from 18.30 hours.
The initiative, organized by United Minds and the tailor shop Bissap, with the collaboration of Doni-Doni Afrowear and Farafina, aims to present to the festival-goers in the Celebratingafrica edition, the richness of these fabrics, the stories transmitted by their prints and the evolution undergone by the designs worn for decades by whole generations.
A unique opportunity to get closer to Africa, also through fashion.
