Africa Fashion Guide are lovers of Vlisco campaigns and when we spotted this on the respectful website Bella Naija we just had to share it with you. As many of you know who have purchased our book Fashion Africa – using beautiful fashion illustrations to showcase the beauty of wax print and African textiles is something we have promotoed in the book so to come across this new campagin from Vlisco illustrating their work is wonderful to see!

We will also be introducing  you to a selection of our illustrators we worked with on Fashion Africa to show you how they beautifully illustrated the 48 designers we feature (for those yet to purchase the book – believe me you will want a copy when you see their work!)

‘Delicate Shades’ is the new collection Vlisco introduces, and is made up of a fabric,s fashion, bags & accessories and is available from 1st November in Africa and on the Vlisco website. As Bella Naija tells us, Vlisco collaborated with renowned fashion illustrator, Sabine Pieper.
