What is the Vlisco’s Women’s Month Live The Dream campaign about?

International Women’s Day, on 8 March, celebrates women around the world. This year, Vlisco honours all inspiring women of West and Central Africa during the whole month of March/the week of 8 May. With the theme DREAMS COME TRUE, Vlisco pays tribute to all African women with dreams, and especially those who dare to take the right steps to bring them to life.

Why are there no nominees this year on which I can vote?

The Vlisco Women’s Month 2016 campaign has a different approach than before. There will be no voting element to elect a new ambassador.

Women have been a source of inspiration for Vlisco since the very beginning. This year Vlisco celebrates its 170th anniversary, in which women will play a key role. It is the perfect moment to reflect on 170 years of design, heritage and heart-warming stories.

That is why in this year’s edition, we want to reflect on the many heart-warming stories Vlisco Women’s Month has brought us. And because every woman has an inspiring story to tell, we want to give you a stage. A stage to tell your story and to share the special woman in your life, who has inspired you to make your dreams come true.

Can I become one of the nominees as well?

From 2016, the Vlisco Women’s Month campaign will be bi-annual. That means that every second year we will nominate women with a unique story to win the unique Vlisco Women’s Month award. Those women will be selected for their impressive achievements in their field of development and for the immense inspiration they represent to other women. Vlisco is open for your suggestions for inspirational women who might be selected in upcoming years. We invite you to share your suggestions via our e-mail address: womensmonth@vlisco.com

Is there a way to nominate a woman for next years’ Vlisco Women’s Month campaign?
