Tradition Meets Modernity with African Textiles

Vlisco is an Hollandaise Textile company/ Boutique that creates incredible African wax textiles and couture dresses.

Growing up in a Nigerian household, I am very familiar with these fabrics and even own a few traditional dresses, (my mother owns more than a few!) But the styles Im familiar with are much simpler.  Seeing them transformed into something so beautiful and high fashion makes me feel incredibly proud.  I couldn’t imagine a better introduction of African textiles/fashion to the rest of the world.
