What happens when we rethink our preconceived notions of what cotton stands for globally? In the third and final chapter of Knowing Cotton Otherwise, you will discover the hidden stories behind cotton. The exhibition questions the perception of cottons legacy and unravels the story of African looks and styles, often overlooked despite their significant influence on the global fashion industry.
The hidden stories behind cotton
Cotton is one of the most famous fabrics in the world, but many stories behind cotton are less well-known. These unknown, sometimes unexpected perspectives have been collected and brought together in the exhibition “Knowing Cotton Otherwise”.
In the third and final chapter, "Flipping the Script", designers Nsimba Valene Lontanga and Angelo Carlos Marcus Elizabeth take you on a journey through their heritage and culture, challenging you to reimagine fundamental concepts within fashion and design.
The exhibition unravels and challenges fixed ideas about 'classic' and 'basics' style items and redefines the notion of 'typically African' design and print. What happens when we rethink our preconceived notions of what cotton stands for globally?
"Knowing Cotton Otherwise" is open to the public until 16 October 2023 at the Fashion for Good Museum.
