London's Victoria & Albert Museum opens its exhibition on African fashion this week, making it the first exhibit of its kind at the establishment in its 170-year history.
According to The Guardian, the showcase will feature designers who have worked with stars like Beyoncé and will also include photographs and films from 25 of Africa's 54 countries.
More than two years in the making, the team behind the exhibition turned to experts as well as young people from Africa for help.
"We wanted to showcase the pan-African fashion scene - that's really what connects the creators in the show," Christine Checinska, curator of African and African diaspora fashion at the V&A, told the publication.
"So whether it's Morocco to South Africa or Ghana in the west, [we want] to try to strategically break down those old colonial boundaries."
The exhibition will be split into two parts - one focusing on historical outfits and images, and the other showing off contemporary designers and photographers.
Included in the latter section are South African designers Rich Mnisi and Sindiso Khumalo.
