This costume exhibit for the Marvel Studios film was photographed where they were temporarily on display at Hollywood's El Capitan Theatre on February 23, 2018.

Ruth Carter was Costume Designer on Ryan Coogler's record-breaking hit movie and created her Afrofuturist looks for the nation of Wakanda by referencing many African tribal looks, art, colours and fabrics.

In the movie we discover that not only is the metal Vibranium from the meteorite used in Wakanda's advanced technology, but it is also woven into the very fabric of their clothes.
