Gillian Zubko, a fashion designer based in Canada

3.10.2017

"My first VEBA clothing collection called 'Emergence' was produced for the 2017 African Fashion week in Edmonton, Alberta. One of the questions asked from the audience was "Where do you get your fabric?"

I am Gillian Zubko and I reside in western Canada. I love color and natural fabric. VEBA fabrics provide and have been integral to my creative process. I discovered VEBA in 2012 when my sister sent me fabric from Prague, Czech Republic where VEBA is based.

VEBA fabrics inspired me to create clothing. Canada is not colorful compared to other countries. Blue jeans are a staple in our wardrobe and worn everywhere! I've made multiple pairs of VEBA trousers and wear them everywhere. People always comment. The patterns are recognized by Afro Canadians and make them smile. I LOVE the colors and patterns of the prints!

The fantastic traditional designs with the amazing weave quality of VEBA Textiles are the main attraction to my creations. I swoon over VEBA! The colors with the texture and finish of the natural fabric are spectacular and lends to versatility for wearing my clothing designs.

Thank you, VEBA!"



VEBA at the Africa Fashion Week Nigeria 2017

6.2017

The fifth annual Africa Fashion Week Nigeria took place in Nigeria's largest city Lagos at the beginning of June. Local designers, exhibitors and models from Nigeria and other African countries gathered in the National Theatre. VEBA has traditionally participated in this event and therefore used the opportunity once more to present its latest collection called Mosaic.


We teamed up with Nigerian designer Ofumam by Grace for this purpose. As a result, 12 beautiful outfits from our VEBA fabrics were created. The presentation of the Mozaic collection took place as part of the prestigious Premium Designers Catwalk block and surely was one of the highlights of the closing day of the festival which was visited by more than a thousand people.


The representatives of VEBA who attended the festival were also in the limelight. Indeed, they were the focus of attention of all the visitors, as well as the photographers and TV reporters thanks to their outstanding outfits made from VEBA fabrics.

VEBA took part in Czech Days in Ghana 2017 exhibition

11.4.2017

The first annual Czech Days in Ghana exhibition was held in Accra, Ghana in the first half of April. The event was organized by the Czech-Ghana Chamber of Commerce under the patronage of diplomatic leaders of both countries. The aim of the exhibition was to present Czech products to Ghanaian merchants, distributors, investors, and other visitors from different market segments. That is why VEBA, which has long been interested in the Ghana market, could not miss the exhibition.

 


As you can see in the photos, VEBA fabrics enjoyed great attention in Ghana. Merchants, designers, diplomats and people from other sectors visited our stand. The highlight of the exhibition was a fashion show sparkled by VEBA fabrics

The 3rd annual "Welcome Spring!" event took place on March 25, 2017 in Broumov, Czech Republic. The event organized in cooperation with the city of Broumov, VEBA and the Broumov High Shcool was completely sold out once again.

VEBA presented its products on the catwalk in four stages: VEBA in the comfort of your home, the Shining Gems Collection / Africa, VEBA in Europe and the Universe Collection. The last of these collections which presented the planets of our solar system in daring colour combinations and original designs was met by a standing ovation. All of these outfits were designed and sewn at VEBA.

Once again the organizers donated the proceeds from the ticket sales to the residents of the Broumov retirement home.

Creating a Christmas hamper with Veba

14.12.2016

Christmas is almost here and the festivities have already kicked in. As we celebrate, we tend to seek out gifts for our loved ones. While many will resort to buying a few yards of a fabric for their loved to design as Christmas day wear or for some time during the festivities, there are so many other ways to use our fabric that will make your hamper even richer.

Custom made outfits

We have an in-house designer who is highly skilled and has been creating designs with the prints for 2 years now. We featured her in our last newsletter where you must have seen some of her works that were showcased at our 2015 fashion show in Lagos Nigeria. Augusta who is the creative director of Pearl Chuck, is available to discuss designs with you if you have one in mind and when you don’t, she can advise you on what is best for the body frame of that loved one whom you wish to get that custom made outfit for.  After which she is there to guide you through the fabric selection process from a wide range of print, plain and brocade fabrics. This is definitely not limited to just the women as the men can also get something unique for the season from the boutique.



Fashion accessories

We have teamed up with some accessory designers who are available to create as many accessories as you wish to gift your loved ones from clutch bags to office bags, head bands, sneakers, earrings, neck pieces, bangles and even laptop bags. You can have it in whatever shape or design that you want. All you have to do is reach out to us, let us know what design you will like, we select the fabric together and you have it done. 

Interior decoration

Many a times, we tend to give our apartments a new look during the festive season. Why not help that loved one of yours in picking out some very nice fabric designs from our stock which can be sewn into a table cloth, as table cloths or covers for the cushions.

These are just a few ways to make your Christmas merrier with our designs. All of which you can purchase from our boutique at 386 Murtala Mohammed Way, Yaba, Lagos.

DESIGNER’S EXPERIENCE

1.12.2016

As we continue our designer’s series, we met up with Eyitayo Abikoye of Tayo Couture – a Lagos based fashion house that caters to both men and women. Eyitayo was at our fashion show in 2015 and has since been designing wears using Veba fabrics.

Speaking on his experience at the fashion show, he had this to say: “It was fantastic and wonderful. I had a lot of people come to me backstage after the show to ask about the collection and how they can purchase it. The Veba designs are exceptional compared to its contemporaries, because of its shining like outlook which gives it a rich silky attitude”.

Eyitayo is currently working on contemporary styles using prints for his ready to wear collection. This will be an opportunity for him to showcase his expertise as he takes his brand to the next level. Speaking on the collection, he had this to say: “These designs are inspired by my environment. I look forward to the new collection by Veba so that I can include them to my designs. I trust that they will be jaw dropping”.

AFRICA FASHION WEEK NIGERIA

21.6.2016

Next week Lagos will host the 3rd edition of the  Africa Fashion Week Nigeria (AFWN), an offshoot of the Africa Fashion Week London. The event will take place at the Eko Hotel and Suites, Lagos, from 1 to 3 July 2016. With a unique tag Connecting Africa to the World, this edition is about exploiting talented designer’s gift and launching it to the world.

VEBA’s new collection Cosmos will be featured during the AFWN by the Nigerian fashion label AYABA. AYABA finds great pleasure in working with Veba fabrics. The prints are bold and colorful, the patterns distinct and unique which are qualities AYABA pieces are renowned for.

Naturally, we cannot release images of the outfits just yet; nevertheless in the meantime, we leave you with the pictures from last year’s AFWN VEBA catwalk.

DESIGNER'S EXPERIENCE

6.2016

On our very first edition, we present to you, Augusta, the creative director of Pearl Chucks – a fashion house based in Nigeria. Speaking with our Brand Ambassador Oma Ehiri, she shared her experience at the 2015 Veba Fashion Show in Nigeria, the inspiration behind her designs at the show and what she thinks about the new collection, Cosmos.

‘I have been working with Veba fabric since 2014 but 2015 was my first time of being a part of the fashion show. It was such a beautiful experience as I had a lot of fun playing with the fabrics. I wanted to create something timeless for the everyday woman which was why I went for a retro collection which I tagged Nine Lives. Working with Veba fabric is even more fun because of its very peculiar and dynamic nature. It is Guinea Brocade and 100% cotton with prints on them. So when creating a piece, you work with not just the designs of the print but also the patterns. Same goes for the new collection, Cosmos which I am currently working with. The colours are so vibrant and I trust that the Nigerian market will love it!’

All the stunning models for the COSMOS lookbook were created by VEBA Atelier, Lucie Robinson – a young talented Czech photographer – deserves credit for the fantastic photos.

VEBA ON FASHION LAB AFRICA

26.5.2016

On 26 May 2016 VEBA was invited to participate in Fashion Lab radio show that dissects the business behind fashion. Our colleagues Jana Mašínová and Tereza Nováková talked about VEBA’s strong commitment to quality standards and environmental protection. The presenter of the show Liz Ogumbo-Regisford, fashion designer based in South Africa, was also interested in VEBA’s new collection of African prints. You can enjoy the podcast on the following link: http://cliffcentral.com/fashion-lab/fashion-lab-the-textile-industry/.

Fashion Lab Africa is focused on the different aspects, elements and dynamics of the fashion industry in Africa and beyond through sharp, unapologetic, robust engagement and forthright debate that epitomise the ethos of the show. The intrinsic focus for the show includes fashion business, education, culture, demystifying stereotypes and is congruent with a Social Exchange angle specifically on fashion.

The objective of the Fashion Lab show is to empower the general public, fashion designers, retailers and any other stakeholders to ensure that a positive message is carried across the broadcast platform with tangible outcomes for the audience and the fashion industry.

WHAT IS BEHIND MICRO, MYSTIC LINES and SYNERGY?

5.2016

Top quality, originality and innovation – that is Veba Textile Mills, traditional producer of jacquard woven cotton fabrics. In this particular segment we rank among the most important manufacturers in the world. Our production comprises two product lines –  clothing fabrics and household textiles. Nearly 90% of our production is exported mainly to Africa, Europe and North America.
Especially for the Nigerian market we have developed three clothing ranges of African prints on brocade – MICRO, MYSTIC LINES and SYNERGY. They draw you into yet undiscovered world of colours and inspiration. Whenever you look at them, they are different. From a distance they impress with their unusual design and inimitable colours, at close quarters the prints start to reveal their second dimension. That is because the fabrics over which the designs are printed, already carry other designs that are inwoven.

In MICRO, tiny rounded or squared designs are hidden in bold geometric shapes. Take a closer look and find out.

In MYSTIC LINES, inwoven wide stripes give rise to the game of light and shadows. They appear to disappear again.

In SYNERGY, the base designs are inwoven and their elements further elaborated and printed over. You can mix and match them to find your own synergy.



All our collections as well as the best quality Guinea Brocades, Voiles and Bazin Riche are available in Veba Boutique in Lagos. For more comprehensive presentation of our collections, including the lookbooks, please visit us on Pinterest.

WELCOME TO SPRING 2016 – The VEBA Fashion Show

26.3.2016

The Conference hall of the Broumov Tourist Information Centre was sold out for this event which welcomed spring in style.

This second edition of "Welcome to Spring", an event organised by VEBA and the town of Broumov, outshone last year´s excellent premiere. This year was the first time all the performers were from Broumov. The models, choreographer and musicians all attend the Broumov Grammar School. And it was a great choice!

VEBA presented its products on the catwalk in four lively and imaginative sets choreographed by Bára Hovorková: "VEBA in the Comfort of Your Home", "VEBA at EXPO 2015", "Africa Wears VEBA" and "VEBA in Europe". The host Lukáš Hamerník, also from Broumov, presented the show and wore some of VEBA´s creations on stage.

The seven-piece Grammar School student band Wajnot?, under the direction of Eva Kroupová, played throughout the evening and even got the audience to dance during their last set.

The organisers donated the proceeds from the ticket sales to the Retirement Home in Broumov.
