Lace Expo opens Friday, 3 June at Lagos Museum

African Lace expo at Lagos Museum

An exhibition of African Lace will open on Friday, 3 June at National Museum, Lagos. The Permanent Secretary, Federal Ministry of Tourism, Culture and National Orientation, Alhaji Ibrahim Mahe; is billed to declare the exhibition open at 10am.

According to an invitation sent to us, signed by Mr. Yusuf Abdallah Usman, Director General of the National Commission for Museums and Monuments (NCMM); the African Lace show is outcome of a collaborative effort between Kunsthistorisches Museum in Vienna, Austria; and, Nigeria’s NCMM.

The expo, devoted to the little-explored chapter of African fashion history; will revolve around the history and significance of lace fabric in Nigeria; and, had earlier taken place in the Austrian capital last October.
