Budding Designers grab the opportunity of a lifetime with the Vlisco Fashion Academy



Are you a budding fashion designer ?

Here is your opportunity to SHINE!

Following Vlisco’s successful Fashion Academy for local tailors across the country, Vlisco Nigeria is once again counting down to February 22nd for another milestone.

This time one budding fashion designer will be chosen from a large pool of participants from the Vlisco Fashion Academy. The winner will showcase their designs in at the Vlisco Urban Beat Fashion Event on the same day alongside top Nigerian designers.

A call for submissions to enter for the competition begins in January 2009 and the competition is a test for creativity, finish, craftsmanship, presentation and a distinct style. This can be a launch pad for the lucky winner’s fashion career. Applicants are required to send in sample sketches of their work in Avante Premiere (young and fresh), Couturiere (exclusive) and Cocktail styles before or by the 31st of January to the email addresses listed below.

The Vlisco Urban Beat Fashion Event is the offspring of the Vlisco Fashion Academy which was created in line with the Company’s corporate ethos of being a committed, ethical and loyal partner for business communities where Vlisco textiles have become part of the vibrant visual and fashion culture.

Everyday this week, we’ll be featuring a new Vlisco collection on Bella Naija to help you get your creative juices flowing. Don’t miss out on this opportunity!! Good Luck!
