Fashion on Film: Wax in the City

Join our museum community for a discussion of Wax in the City, a film following the new generation of Franco-African designers who are taking Paris by storm with bold African wax prints. 

About the Film

Africa is in fashion. The look? Wax, which more and more African and Afropean designers have chosen to integrate into their creations. Flora Coquerel, a Franco-Beninese woman and the winner of Miss France 2014, invites us to see how the colors of a simple fabric have become the symbol of the cultural melting pot for an entire generation. (BKE, 2018, 54 minutes.)
