Sri Lanka’s fashion community was in for a treat when the 20th anniversary edition of Colombo Fashion Week took place recently. The celebratory season began with a special preview by two designers held at the Mayor's Residence, an imposing colonial structure which provided a formidable backdrop. The show then moved to the Shangri-La where 28 Sri Lankan and international designers showcased their collections. This year the theme of CFW was Inclusivity and it was heartening to see plus size models on the runway. Founded two decades ago by Ajai Vir Singh, CFW provides a platform for many Sri Lankan designers to showcase their collections. Aided by CFW CEO Fazeena Rajabdeen along with CFW Director Prasad Bidapa, this year’s show brought together many designers onto one platform to showcase Sri Lanka’s design talent.
