Sagging, String Vests and the Doo Rag

WHEN:

On 18th November 2016 only
Paid Entry (£5.00)

WHERE:

Victoria & Albert Museum, Cromwell Road, London, SW7 2RL

WHAT:

"Exploring the cultural politics and the numerous statements behind 'Saggers' and 'Sagging' as a symbol of freedom, defiance, and activism, running counter to society's conventional norms. Unpack the allegory behind the colours of Pan-Africa as a 'fashion statement' of the prevailing string vest. Unveil the once popular Doo-Rag, worn for protection, dressing down and a style culture of headwear. Join designer, writer and curator Dr Christine Checinska, playwright, artist and curator Dr Michael McMillan, and photographer Jennie Baptiste as they discuss these themes through talks, costume and cloth, workshops, footage and music."
