“From “Do the Right Thing” to “Black Panther,” designer Ruth E. Carter has defined African fashion in Hollywood for over 40 years… Ruth Carter won her first Oscar for the elaborate costumes she designed with the help of 3D-technology for the groundbreaking 2018 blockbuster “Black Panther.” The costumes now form the centerpiece of an exhibition entitled “Ruth E. Carter – Afrofuturism in Costume Design” at the SCAD Museum of Fashion + Film in Atlanta.”
