Vlisco new design 1

Vlisco’s has unveiled their latest collection for the first season of the year, 2016 called the ‘WOVEN WISDOM’.

Vlisco’s designers found inspiration for this collection in the rich, multi-layered world of textiles, zooming in to capture all the intricate details whilst getting up close and personal with techniques like knitting and weaving, to create these exceptional designs.

They have carefully examined fascinating features in textiles and nature, and given them bold new interpretation.

Vlisco’s newest collection has two distinct features which are the designs and sensational colours.

WOVEN WISDOM features polished silhouettes of the 50s as the textiles are woven together with a daring mix of knit patterns and animal skin designs.

Vlisco is known to be colour crazy and this has been demonstrated in this season’s collection. Designers incorporated a new blushing salmon pink which adds a feminine touch to the fabric and also brings out that powerful palette of the WOVEN WISDOM.

Vlisco’s Limited Edition fabrics are a highly desired item, and this season will be no exception. Selected designs from the WOVEN WIDSOM collection are lavished in copper, an eye-catching metallic colour with a heart-warming glow.

From the Vlisco runways, straight to your next cocktail party! The latest Prêt-a-Porter collection introduces two party-perfect, ready-to-wear outfits in beautifully crafted Vlisco fabrics. Try on these at your nearest Vlisco Boutique in the Accra Mall.

Since 1846, Vlisco has been crafting unique textiles that influence the fashion landscape in West and Central Africa. These fabrics reflect true Dutch craftsmanship and are still known as ‘Hollandais’, the French word for ‘Dutch’.

Vlisco is still the only brand creating authentic Dutch Wax fabrics, which are recognisable for their exceptional designs, distinctive colours and genuine wax craquelé.
