It’s time for the women of the ramp

Forget the teenage sylphs gliding down the ramp. These are women who have made their mark and are returning to the catwalk for a cause. Yes, Sri Lanka’s celebrity models and the cream of Sri Lankan fashion designers and entertainers are coming together for the Lanka Alzheimer’s Foundation on February 17 at the Oak Room of the Cinnamon Grand.

‘Divas Are Back’ is a very special Lou Ching Wong production with a focus on the more mature yet sophisticated, fashion conscious woman. The show will see Chrysanthi Fernandopulle, Eric Suriyasena, Yoland Aluvihare Holm, Anitra Flamer Caldera, Rebel by Ruchira, Manohari Caderamanpulle, Gihan Ediriweera and Sheruka Mahakumarage all contributing to present a stunning evening’s entertainment. Accessories are by Backstage and entertainment by Koluu and ‘With My Feet’.

Lorraine Tamitegama, Executive Trustee – Fund Raising, of the Lanka Alzheimer’s Foundation says the foundation welcomes support to help it sustain and plan its future services. The foundation’s voluntary service challenges in 2010 and beyond are to support, counsel and provide information on every aspect of dementia and its progression and to provide additional services to a larger community, she explains.
