Fashion Cities Africa

Bullet PR are proud to announce we will be working with Brighton Museum and Art Gallery this year – supporting the museum on the launch of Fashion Cities Africa, the first major UK exhibition dedicated to contemporary African fashion.

The exhibition will explore fashion and style in four cities at the compass points of the African continent – Lagos in Nigeria, Nairobi in Kenya, Casablanca in Morocco and Johannesburg in South Africa and will consider recent and contemporary fashion practices in these distinctive metropoles, from couture to street style.
