Colombo Fashion Week 2019

The movement which revolutionized fashion development on the scapes of Sri Lanka. With a mandate to position the isle as the fashion hub of South Asia, ‘Colombo Fashion Week’ (CFW) has, over the years, marked itself as an elite anticipated walkthrough of the field’s latest. Birthed by visionary Ajai Vir Singh in a bid to propel the local fashion industry into the global eye, the 6-day event will see figures of talent, budding and veteran, step onto its hallowed stage in showcase of their best, with its 2019 edition predominantly focusing on “The Next 15 Years Of Fashion”.

Redefining the pillars of fashion, art, music and cuisine in a series of venues strategically located across Colombo, Colombo Fashion Week frames out a series of events along with associated features.

Why You Should Go

The Fashion Design Exhibition; a celebration of the talent, the creativity and the passion which is reflected in the craft of local fashion designers. On a local note will be designers including Sonali Dharmawardene, Dimuthu Sahabandu and Indeevari Yapa Abeywardene and the international being Rajesh Pratap Singh and Sukit Dir. The Emerging Designer Platform will see 10 budding designers step up, one of whom will clinch the ‘Next’ award, following critique of their showcase.

From the ramp to your very own closet; showcased designs can be pre-booked through a CFW mobile app at the exhibit itself or can be purchased at the ‘Jaguar Land Rover Showroom’ on the 9th of March.

Fashion Films: the platform on which budding film makers and directors debut motion pictures which express the art of fashion. This will see one such participant bag the coveted Fashion Films Award at the FW Fashion Films Festival.

Honouring CFW tradition, Colombo Fashion Week collaborates with 3 leading hotels in Colombo for ‘Fashion+Food’; as select restaurants in ‘Hilton Colombo’, ‘Shangri-La Hotel, Colombo’ and ‘Galle Face Hotel’ offer limited edition menus, tuck into high-end gastronomy exclusively made available during the course of fashion week.

Wrapping up this edition of ‘Colombo Fashion Week’ will be the iconic ‘CFW Afterparty’, an invitee-only end extravaganza, marking ‘Café Français’ as its 2019 venue.
