Cultural Appropriation and Heritage in Fashion

It seems that in the 21st century, cultural appropriation – like globalization – is inevitable. Is cultural appropriation a way to give visibility to cultural practices in a transnational context? Can it be the savior of cultural heritage? Or is it a current tendency that reinforces dynamics of cultural exploitation?

After an unconventional catwalk of the latest collection of Kinam and Jarga Designs, join us for a panel that explores the contemporary dynamics in African fashion design.

In the panel:

  • Kinam– Ghanaian born and Oslo based wax print designer, makeup artist, and stylist.
  • Stella Mwangi– Norwegian singer, rapper, songwriter and designer.
  • Thomas Talawa Prestø – Artistic director Tabanka Dance Ensemble.

Moderator: Camille Oneida Charles – writer, teacher, activist.
