THISDAY Style - - CONTENT - BY KONYE CHELSEA NWABOGOR

This year’s Vlisco&Co edi­tion was not only a fash­ion en­deav­our en­trenched in cul­ture, but a col­lab­o­ra­tion that ex­plores the myths, mys­tery and magic of the Igbo cul­ture. It draws at­ten­tion to their world of colours and sym­bols, en­hanc­ing the rich­ness of their roots and a vi­sion of their fu­ture. This year’s fash­ion re­search and col­lab­o­ra­tion was a uni­fied visual nar­ra­tive. It ex­pressed a con­tem­po­rary story whilst ex­plor­ing the old and new Igbo cul­ture and its tra­di­tions with Vlisco fab­rics.

To cel­e­brate this year’s edi­tion, Vlisco&Co, was a new movie by Daniel Obasi, which screened at the fash­ion event along­side two fash­ion col­lec­tions by Gozel Green and Fruche. There was also a pho­tog­ra­phy ex­hi­bi­tion by Yagazie Emezi and new mu­sic com­po­si­tion by tal­ented Dj, Ayel.
