Vlisco Charity Fashion Show

Hi friends,

I know you missed me, well I missed  you too. lol. For those of you reading my blog for the first time, benvenuti!

So, are you wondering whats new? Well, Vlisco Charity Fashion show! Vlisco held a fundraiser auction last night at the Vlisco Boutique, Accra Mall for Infanta Malaria Prevention Foundation and I was a part of it thanks to my friend, *wink, wink*, you know yourself.

The Fundraiser/Fashion Show which featured one exquisite piece each by six Ghanaian prominent designers who are official Vlisco Partners, was hosted by the ever beautiful and bi-lingual Anita Erskine. After an opening speech by the Vlisco Brand Manager and the Deputy Administrative Director of IMPF and owner of Amanda Jewels, Mrs Ruth Nylander, the fundraising started with the auction of the beautiful dress adorned by Mrs Ruth Nylander and designed by Ameyo.

The main event started with Ghanaian Designers: PistisAmeyo, Poqua Poqu, RowVon, House of Eccentric and Mina Evans having their dresses displayed by models and bid on by guests and it was RowVon's chic and detailed dress that had the highest bid at 1000 Ghanaian Cedis. The event didn't end there, Vlisco went ahead to auction 12 Limited Edition fabrics; The guests with the highest bid for the limited Edition fabrics are going to have the fabrics designed by one of the 6 talented designers for free.

Vlisco Ready to wear collection was modeled and not auctioned but sold at discount prices for anyone that was interested and to bring the event to a close, the Vlisco Ambassador, Dr. Mrs Ellen Hagan gave the vote of thanks.

If you are interested in making a donation to Infanta Malaria Prevention Foundation to help bridge the gap between poverty and malaria prevention and eradication in Ghana, feel free to do so here.

And now, I leave you with some pictures.
