International Women’s Day, on 8 March, celebrates women around the world and the success of Vlisco Women’s Month in previous years motivated the brand to continue the celebration of inspiring women of West and Central Africa during the whole month of March.
The Vlisco Women’s Month celebration will start on the 6th March when the nominees for 2015 will be unveiled.
Today, Vlisco launches its Fashion Fund which supports upcoming fashion designers and tailors in Ghana to live their dream and provide them with exciting opportunities to further their success.
Novice fashion designers and tailors are encouraged to pitch their business plan before March 15, for the chance of winning master couture classes, a start-up fashion business package and funding.
Only complete plans pitched via dream.vlisco.com/fashionfund before 15 March 2015 have a chance to win.Finalists are invited for an interview at the Vlisco office in Ghana to present their plan, share their fashion ambition and show their skills.
With its strict selection procedure, Vlisco is able to scout the true fashion talents of Ghana and support them in realising their fashion dream. The winner of the Fashion Fund Award will be announced at the Vlisco Women’s Month Award Night on the 11th April 2015.
This year, there will be one winner in every country where the Vlisco Women’s Month campaign runs (Democratic Republic of Congo, Togo, Benin, Ivory Coast, Ghana and Nigeria).
This is because Vlisco wants to encourage fashion talents in all of its core markets.
