The allure and glamour that dominates African movie premieres were not lost at this event; with notable A-list actors, filmmakers and entertainers walking the carpet before watching one of the year’s most-anticipated movies.
In celebration of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, the dress code was “Afro-Futurism: Show Them Who We Are!”, a theme that was adequately depicted in the movie. As a whole, Afro-Futurism synergizes aspects of science fiction, magic realism and fantasy to reimagine Afrocentrism. Representations of this would include futuristic accessories, metallic fabrics and makeup looks merged with African prints/fabrics and hairstyles.
