Unseen Dimensions: Emerging Tanzanian Design – EXHIBITION

We would like to encourage you to attend Unseen Dimensions: Emerging Tanzanian Design. This is an exhibition showcasing five exciting new fashion creatives from Tanzania as part of the British Council and British Fashion Council’s International Fashion Showcase 2014, in parallel with London Fashion Week.

Featuring silhouettes from Tanzania’s newest fashion talent, including Norway based Tanzanian label, Odd is Bold, and menswear designer, Sheria Ngowi, the rich culture and heritage of the country radiates through the clothing design and the use of traditional textiles. With the unique tailoring and individual narrative of each designer, Unseen Dimensions combines tradition and craftsmanship with innovation and contemporary questions of Tanzanian identity.


Embracing the diversity of design and inspired by the country’s vibrancy and zeal, this exhibition will act as a platform from which to promote the dynamism of Tanzania’s growing fashion market.

Exhibition runs 11-23 February 2014
