The new Vlisco collection ‘Gallery of Poems’ and the exhibition theme of ‘Vlisco et moi; une poésie à révéler’ aptly converge in a collection of stories.
For an entire week, from 30 October to 6 November, the city of Cotonou was awash in the world of Vlisco. The event was highlighted with a spectacular fashion show and the simultaneous launching of the new 'Gallery of Poems' collection. The design concept of the new collection was the main theme of the show. The entire collection and dresses where designed and crafted by the Vlisco Fashion team.
As the sole authentic designer and manufacturer of fabrics often called ‘Wax Hollandais’, Vlisco is unparalleled when it comes to quality, professional skill and innovation. Another aspect that distinguishes Vlisco is their 'heritage', and to tell this rich history from A to Z requires a unique platform. The Vlisco Brand Exposition offers such a platform.
Vlisco also contributes to education in Benin through the establishment of a Tailor Academy that trains tailors in accordance with the Vlisco quality standard. Together with the Vlisco Fashion Team, patterns are read and designs made, revised and, finally, translated into lovely Vlisco creations.
Vlisco Netherlands B.V. is part of Actis. Vlisco has been designing & producing exclusive fabrics and fashion in Helmond, the Netherlands, since 1846.
