The project Connecting Afro Futures. Fashion x Hair x Design, on show at the Kunstgewerbemuseum Berlin, focuses on a new, confident and globally thinking generation of fashion designers from Africa. The social and political significance of fashion design and the design of Afro hair are at the centre of the processual and exchange-based concept of this exhibition.

Meet the Designers gathers all exhibition participants for an afternoon of discursive exchange. The event begins with short input presentations by the designers, followed by a Q&A session moderated by Emo Rugene. Afterwards, visitors will have the opportunity to walk through the exhibition together with the designers, have conversations and ask questions.
