“African Designs: Creating Wearable Art” at the Bellefonte Art Museum

African women and men have evolved their styles from historical designs and made wearable art to accommodate their modern lives. Styles and designs created and worn by African women and men have influenced western fashion and appear on everything from handbags to formal attire and despite their popularity many fashion designers and buyers are unaware that these are African patterns that represent a rich history of great and ingenious people.
