Carmen Miranda is missing her banana headscarfRe-Imagined Brazilian Headpiece Exhibition

If you’re wandering anywhere near Rixdorf tonight keep an eye out for flashes of the fantastic – Sameheads is hosting a night showcasing beautifully bizarre headpieces. Aptly titled ‘Carmen Miranda is missing her banana headscarf’ after the legendary Brazilian samba star and her infamous headwear, the show promises a series of ‘reimagined Brazilian headpieces’ by an internationally eclectic crew of artists, costume and clothing designer largely based in Berlin: Tata Christiane, Mads Dinesen, Raki, Jackie Taylor, Baby Bone, Bim Arnby and Rubbish Fairy. Also featured is photographer Valquire Veljkovic, whose fashion work sets unusual designs in against a fantastical backdrop. Expect grandeur, and expect the unexpected, as this decidedly fashionable corner of Neukolln takes a flight of fancy.

Richardstrasse 10, 12043 Berlin
Opening: 11.5.2012, 20h; exhibition runs for two weeks
