NEW WAX FANTASTIQUE
The world of wax is a bottomless well that dives deep down into the history of time, and is entangled with tradition, heritage, culture and identity. It is a pool of skill and knowledge, ever so gloriously beautiful and rich.
This season Vlisco takes you on a journey through the fantastic world of wax, featuring highly intricate designs that were conceived while looking at the expert craft of batik, as well as our own Vlisco archive.
Vlisco Fashion Fund 2018
21 Finalists of the Vlisco Fashion Fund faced the joyous and creative challenge of completing the final round of the competition. Each finalist received Vlisco fabrics from which to create a collection of 5 outfits that show off their signature style in a surprising way.
Wax is deeply seeded within the heritage of many women, entangled with their lives and embraced by them as they use the fabrics to weave their own stories. These stories are beautiful and evocative, like complex tapestries. Wax is all over, as it peppers the lives of women. It flows outside of their bodies, covering surroundings.
