24 April 2014 – We proudly present six new Vlisco Ambassadors for the year 2014. These ambassadors and at the same time winners of the Vlisco Women’s Month Award from Nigeria, Ghana, Benin, Togo, Ivory Coast and The Democratic Republic of the Congo were revealed during a special ‘Night of Dreams Award Show’ which took place at the end of last March. During the whole month of March, we honoured the outstanding achievements of West and Central African women by identifying and rewarding those who inspire others to realize their dreams. The ambassadors will play an important role in various Vlisco brand activities throughout the year and, more important, they will further inspire women in their country via activities in and outside their network.
