Tropenmuseum: Fashion Cities Africa

Tropenmuseum: Fashion Cities Africa

Discover the thriving fashion scenes of four African cities

From October 2017, the Tropenmuseum is showing the urban fashion scenes in Casablanca, Johannesburg, Lagos and Nairobi with the exhibition Fashion Cities Africa – all through the eyes of local experts.


Studio Louter developed an introduction film and various projections that showcase these four African cities and the diversity of the inhabitants and their fashion. Instagram photos, blogs and videos about the fashion on display, the designers and the compilers can all be accessed by means of touchscreens.


We also developed an application which you can use to take photos and put together a mood board with images of the fashion designs and sources of inspiration you come across in the exhibition. From haute couture to street style and experimental design. Which outfits and which African city fit best with your style?
