How to Dress a Powerful Fictional Country

In the world of popular movies, you’d be hard pressed to find anything bigger than The Black Panther at the moment. With setting a record for opening weekend ticket sales, it seems to be the newest must see movie.

The story takes place in Wakanda, a fictional country that sits between Ethiopia and Kenya and hidden away from the rest of the world.

In this featurette, costume designer, Ruth Carter, talks all about bringing the rich culture of traditional African society and mixing it with the modern styles.

For beadwork to 3D printing, the breathtaking, creative fashion of Marvel’s latest film is sure to have you wanting some the costumes for yourself.
