DazzlingDilemma

Collection ‘Dazzling Graphics’ from Vlisco

These ladies look amazing in the cloth they are wearing. I love the picture, I love the style – however, I feel I shouldn’t because it is Vlisco. A friend handed me the booklet with their latest designs with the words ‘I know it is not really pc…‘. Vlisco is a Dutch company, who creates and sells Africa/Asia-inspired cloth to wealthy people in West Africa. The company has existed since 1846. Based on their origins, does this raise questions regarding Colonialism and Exploitation? Would love to hear what you guys think!
