The general public will vote for any of the five women who inspires them the most. By voting, they also stand the chance to be win prizes including VIP tickets to the Be Your Dream award night and tailor-made Vlisco dresses. Voting can be done at www.beyourdream.vlisco.com or by sending the first letter of a nominee’s name to 1751.

Creative and imaginative female fashion professionals including tailors, designers, and stylists also have the opportunity to send their business plans to the Vlisco Fashion Dream Fund to win funding to realize their dreams.

Three winners throughout West and Central Africa will respectively win US$10,000, US$7,000 or US$5,000 to enable them to make their dreams come true.
