In the spirit of Vlisco’s 170th anniversary celebrations, the thrilling third installment of Vlisco’s designer collaboration initiative has returned to the flagship Vlisco boutique at the Accra Mall.
The collaboration with the leading African textile manufacturer, Vlisco, follows the recent successful collections of Stylista and Poqua Poqu from earlier this year.
For this installment, Vlisco teamed up with talented Ghanaian designer, Melanie Crane, for ‘Vlisco x Melanie Crane: the Capsule Collection’ which is set to reinvent the wheel with creative designs in this collection.

Her ability to create an invigorating collection out of colourful and vibrant fabric really embodies the timelessness of Vlisco.”
He added, “In marking Vlisco’s 170th anniversary celebrations, we expect her collection to draw in the young and young at heart to invest in our brand, and be a part of the Vlisco story.”
“It is really exciting to be able to work with Vlisco for such a memorable occasion. You can’t help but be inspired by the vivacious and flamboyant fabric and I am looking forward to a great ride with them on this collection,” Stephanie Melanie said.
