Vlisco Et Moi, Une Poesie A Reveler (Vlisco And I, A Revealing Poem)

Written By: MIMIFor an entire week, from 30 October to 6 November, Cotonou, Benin was awash in the world of Vlisco. The Palais de Congrès provided the setting for the exhibition "Vlisco et Moi; Une Poésie à Révéler." The entire story was told as a museum exhibition, starting with trade relations between the Netherlands and Indonesia during the time of the Dutch East India Company, followed by the shifting of trade relations to Africa and the establishment of Vlisco, and ending with the current and future strategies of the Vlisco brand. Take a look at runway photographs from the event below.
