By Ifueko Diagbare
May 30-The stairway of the Nicon Luxury Hotel Abuja, became an emergency runway as Vlisco unveiled it’s latest collection tagged,   Sparking Grace.
The occasion was a cocktail put together by the Dutch embassy to mark it’s National Day.
Initially, May 30 was the birthday of Queen Juliana, the former Queen of the kingdom of The Netherlands. Her daughter, the actual Queen Beatrix (this year 30 years in reign) kept that day as the National Day, when she became the new Queen of the Netherlands in 1980.
During the cocktail, the embassy of The Kingdom of the Netherlands in Nigeria, used the occasion to honour Vlisco, the manufacturers of Real Dutch Wax, a Dutch company with over 160 years of history.
The Vlisco collection was a mix of vibrant colours- red with yellow. Verdant pallets, crisscrossed with wild foliage in full bloom. It was indeed a sparkling collection, made even more exotic by the swaying of   graceful models.
Chief Host, His Excellency, Mr. Arie Van Der Weil was all smiles as he welcomed guests to the celebrity studded event. No less happy, was Else Hartsema, Managing Director, Vlisco. Pictures below show some  guests at the event.
