Tell us a bit about your first ever experience with Vlisco.

Everything looks professional and properly planned, It appears it’s going to be an amazing experience, as we have different professionals in their fields on set.

What does it mean for you to shoot with Vlisco?
It’s a big deal for me. Way back in 2009, when I started working with Vlisco, I had always imagined what it would be like to model for their campaigns. I am happy it’s happening today.

For me it was towards the end of the shoot, just happy seeing everything going well in a friendly environment with nice and professional people.

Well interpreted, well done Vlisco. The turbans also have a good feeling as that completes a proper muslim look.

Not working with professionals. It makes photoshoots difficult for me.
