Download Press Release Re-Imagining: Movie Icons – Campaign Overview
The Africa Channel partnered with Vanichi Magazine for a 10-part, fashion forward series that celebrates African designers and asks the question, “What If Movie Icons Wore African Fashion?”

Just in time for New York (and Harlem) Fashion week, The Africa Channel launches a 10-part digital series that asks a simple yet compelling question, “What if movie icons wore African fashion?” The answer to this provocative query can be found in each of the episodes utilizing a diverse range of models to creatively reimagine celebrity styles in Africanized versions of iconic movie wardrobes.

Produced by The Africa Channel, who partnered with Vanichi Magazine, this Afro-futurism spin on Hollywood designs shines a spotlight squarely on the rich textures of the African diaspora.
