A major new fashion exhibition entitled Voices of Fashion. Black Couture, Beauty and Styles. is set to open at the Centraal Museum. The show will be the first ever staged by an art museum in the Netherlands to query the white gaze as the default vantage point from which to present, wear and collect fashion. Underpinning the exhibition are years of research by black, brown and white people that show that the fashion world and our relationship with it continue to be shaped by the legacies of European colonialism. Voices of Fashion takes you on a little told story of fashion, with a stunning exhibition design by Afaina de Jong of AFARAI.
Along with the exhibition, the Centraal Museum publishes a book in collabaration with Serana Angelista en Glamcult. The book is packed with interviews, unique photo's, columns, essays and other contributions of inspiring and renowned persons in the fashion industry. You can purchase your copy of the book in the museum shop.
