Dress-scapes is an ethnographic film about African fashion in the capital of Ghana.

The comeback of African print seems to be emerging in the fashion system of Accra. The film gives an interesting overview of dress-scapes in Accra by showing the great diversity of tailor-made fashion, and the creativity of the hybrid styles. But it also highlights beautiful details by focusing on a few participants who show expression of personal identity and culture by wearing the African prints. In this way the film is not only observational, it gives people space to tell their story and show they are proud of the African wear.
