VLISCO Collection 2016


VLISCO Collection 2016

In Summer 2016 RWANDA CLOTHING presents a brand new type of collection designed by Joselyne Umutoniwase: it’s the first time we are working together with a producer of African style fabrics to create a new RWANDA CLOTHING collection and we were lucky to immediately work together with probably the best brand in the African fabric industry – VLISCO!

VLISCO provided us with fabrics from their latest pattern design collections and Joselyne created a small but special VLISCO Collection 2016 out of these for which we made a photo shooting and additionally a fashion catwalk show in Kigali to present the new designs to the excited audience. Afterwards these very unique pieces came into our RWANDA CLOTHING STORE in Kigali where our customers were able to buy them. We hope this cooperation with VLISCO will continue and looking forward to the next VLISCO Collection 2017 by Joselyne Umutoniwase for RWANDA CLOTHING…


The special VLISCO Collection 2016 had the motto: let’s do something different and have fun! And RWANDA CLOTHING designer Joselyne had a lot of fun creating this colorful and very natural collection for RWANDA CLOTHING and VLISCO that provided us with their best fabrics from the latest African pattern design collections.

Inspired by the summertime nature, by flowers, birds and fruits and with new creativity the cooperation gave us, we enjoyed working on this small collection very much and this work is resulting in the typical RWANDA CLOTHING designs and in a very trendy African fashion style. Happy summertime fashion!

The photo shoot for the VLISCO collection took place at the tea plantations of Nyungwe in the South-West of Rwanda and at the famous and unique Nyungwe Forest Lodge that is probably the most stylish hotel in Rwanda giving its guest a peaceful and calm place to relax and great views to enjoy besides all luxury and hospitality you can wish for.

We were happy to work with Alexia Uwera Mupende as our model again since this time she is busy with traveling and making modeling career also outside of Rwanda.

Photographer for RWANDA CLOTHING was for the first Raphael Cardinael and it was a real pleasure working with him as well. Good job!

Thanks to everyone who supported this shooting and collection. A special thank to VLISCO for providing us with their beautiful fabrics and their great support and also to the manager of the Nyungwe Forest Lodge, Jerry Were, and his team for opening their doors for us.
