Great Opportunity for Aspiring Fashion Designers in Vlisco Fashion Fund

Stephanie Okereke-Linus Vlisco 3

Hi SL Fabz,

I hope you’ve had a great week!

I know there are lots of fashionistas and aspiring designers in the house so I’d like to remind you of an interesting opportunity.

Remember I told you I am the face of the Vlisco Women’s Month campaign this year. Well, another aspect of the Women’s Month campaign is the Vlisco Fashion Fund, which helps aspiring fashion designers in West and Central Africa.

Novice designers are encouraged to pitch their business plan, which explains their fashion dream, to a Vlisco jury between 1-23 March 2014, with the chance of winning $2,500 funding and a fashion training in the Netherlands. The 3 winners will be announced at the Vlisco Women’s Month Award Night at the end of March. Find out more at

Also, don’t forget to cast your votes for the Vlisco Women’s Month Award.

The Vlisco Women’s Month Award, honours the outstanding achievements of West and Central African women by identifying and rewarding those who inspire others to realise their dreams. Vlisco has nominated 3 or 4 women in each of the countries Nigeria, Ghana, Benin, Togo, Ivory Coast and Democratic Republic of the Congo for the Vlisco Women’s Month Award this year. Elected by public vote, the winners, who become Vlisco’s new ambassadors for 2014, will be revealed during the Vlisco Women’s Month Award Night at the end of March.

Find out more about the nominees and follow their activities at and stand a chance to win fantastic prizes when you vote.

I wish you all the best of luck and a fab weekend!
