Loden meets indigo - fashion encounters in Niger

(Niger, Austria 2012)

 

For the desert people of the Tuareg, clothes are more important than houses.

Three Austrian fashion designers meet four colleagues from the African desert state of Niger. The documentary tells how in Agadez fashion is communicated in the world language. The old Sahara city and its people, clothes, living environment and traditions of the nomad tribes have left their mark on the collections.
