Unity: Dress-scapes of Accra, NL/GH, 2016

Running time: 37'7''

An ethnographic film about African fashion in the capital of Ghana. The comeback of African print seems to be emerging in the fashion system of Accra. By following Allan, a fashion designer and his wife Cynthia, this mosaic film shows the great diversity of tailor-made fashion and hybrid styles; the ways in which African wear is used and the expression of culture through wardrobe. The process of sowing a dress shows the marriage of both fabric & design, tradition & creativity and husband & wife.
