    The purses are great.That’s about it

      I agree. Nothing to write home about. I wonder when they’ll get tired of this ‘extra-extra’ witht their designs! Enough with the mermaids!

      Thought I was the only one! The styles are probably meant for the runway to showcase their fabrics. But for tailors? Blah! Nothing to help them there!
      The Purses are great! Maybe they could take away that ‘Vlisco’ label on it and make it a sexier ‘V’

      errmmm…I doubt that tailors r meant to copy it design for design, cut for cut. I think it’s just to give them an idea on something to work with. I see a couple of things I want my tailor to work on.

    its already….i really like the pruses though.
    the weave on the model is very disturbing. i hate when weaves are done in a very tacky manner. if a weave is to be worn, it should always be stylish. it looks like that was just thrown on her head.

    People, easy on the “so tired of ankara” statement already… This shoot is just an ad campaign for the new Vlisco print design, its just to show people the new/latest patterns and design.

  36. Lara

    March 23, 2011 at 7:25 am
