A poignant tributary fashion show presented by curated International and local designers was the touching finale after nine days of celebration of food, art, music, and fashion during the festivities of Celebrate Colombo by CFW’s Olu Swim Week 2019. 

The ‘Tribute to Colombo’ runway had designers Buddhi Batiks, Tarun Tahiliani, Charini, Abraham & Thakore, Indi by Indi, Rajesh Pratap Singh, Maus, Nivedita Saboo, Hemant Trivedi, Sonali Dharmawardena, Koca by RN, Suketdhir, Jai by Aashkii and Dimuthu Sahabandu showcasing just three pieces each which in their eyes represented the unity and resilience of Sri Lanka.

With a prominent white colour scheme running through most of the pieces on the runway, it was a pleasure to witness how each designer incorporated the essence of Sri Lanka whilst preserving their own style.
