Blink and look again and you will see the same thing twice but on a different level. A double layer, seemingly rigid, flowing in sync with the rapid movement of the fabric, says the Vlisco website.

The collection, a true celebration of textiles, embraces various textile techniques. Experience the passionate warmth of a soft colour scheme containing both romantic pinks and reds and subtle greens and blues, resulting in silky smooth combinations that can be blended endlessly.

Express your femininity by donning the curved shapes of straight and bold designs. Controlled structures contrasted with light shades give the fabric the illusion of a third dimension.

The fabric itself is an artistic tool that only needs your personal touch for the ultimate 3D creation. Adorn yourself in ‘Touch of Sculpture’ and express who you really are. This collection can also be enjoyed as part of the ‘Touch of Sculpture’ fashion & accessories collection available in Vlisco Boutiques starting end of August.

The new ‘Touch of Sculpture’ fabric collection from Vlisco teases the senses, so let go and let your senses be titilated.....

How was your experience?
