Having returned to Sri Lanka with her husband and young son, Upeksha Hager has become known as the name behind ‘U for Upeksha’ which is sold locally in a few upmarket boutiques and was featured on the ramps at the Colombo Fashion Week earlier this year. She’s excited about a resort wear collection she’s putting together for an upcoming fashion show but the curious will have a chance to check out her work before then.
“I oftenindulge in designing little cluster collections,” Upeksha told the Sunday Times. “This allows me to explore many different moods, colour pallets and materials.” The clothes she’ll be putting on display belong to one of three big collections she produced this year: spring/summer, resort and holiday wear. “I am really excited about the up-coming sale because it is a collection of many different design expressions,” says Upeksha, who is looking forward to seeing women with a passion for fashion try out her designs.
