‘Serengeti Sirens‘ explores how femininity – particularly Tanzanian femininity – is articulated through fashion and how this expression is informed by other contemporary Tanzanian ideals of status, modesty and faith across the country.

Whatever their interpretation, the Sirens remain proud, regal and truly Tanzanian. The aim of the exhibition is to view the female form as adorned by the creations of the various designers through their eyes and their vision.

These diverse visions are all inspired by the regional nuances present throughout Tanzania, as well as exposure to global ideals – all equally valid and uniquely Tanzanian.
