JeanPaul Paula hosted our 10th edition of MAFB’s annual educational program and competition: fashion fest. Designer Christiano Mpasi-Bila won! Christiano got inspired by the koteka from New Guinea. The fashion fest Tropenmuseum edition 2018 is a co–creation between MAFB and the Research Center for Material Culture. The annual fest celebrates cultural heritage and is a battlefield for creativity that accommodates and coaches young talents operating within fashion design, hairstyling, make-up and modelling. At the Grande Finale on 9th of December, the teams presented their work in front of the jury, on the catwalk in the Tropenmuseum’s Lichthal.
