With the month-long Vlisco Women’s Month campaign in March 2014, Vlisco celebrated and paid tribute to successful African women who have made their dreams come true. As part of this initiative Vlisco created the Vlisco Fashion Fund. Its aim is to empower and encourage young female creative fashion professionals from West and Central Africa and unleash their true potential.
Tailors, designers and stylists were asked to submit a business plan of how they would make their dream a reality. Patricia was one of the winners and receive funding of $2500 and a Fashion Training in the Netherlands to get invaluable business advice from the Vlisco team to help bring her dream to life. We were curious about her experience and asked her some questions.
