A mysterious woman walks back and forth like a peacock, waving a vibrant piece of cloth over newly reclaimed territories. Echoed in kaleidoscopic tones, a narrator praises the woven orator that clothes our bodies and speaks for us. For centuries, clothing has silently defined how the world sees us. Fabric recreated, redefined, and re-inhabited as modern African fashion (re)iterates secrets untold. This is Mtindo, a celebration of the vibrancy of movement, the ebb and flow of modern African grace, an interconnection with the beauty of pattern making.
