Sri Lanka has a unique fashion culture that has been fuelled by a unique textile heritage, the modern design talent from the country as well as the high-tech fashion manufacturing facilities available in the island. This combination, plus the growing commitment to sustainable clothing has made Sri Lanka a new paradise for unique fashion.
Sri Lanka’s fashion heritage draws from thousands of years in textile weaving, Batik, dyeing and other traditional methods that give rise to rich, unique fabrics. The simple, discreetly coloured looks of these textiles are currently coveted by the fashion world and carry a timeless style sense. These traditional textiles are now being used for high-end chic fashion collections by Sri Lanka’s contemporary designers whose work bears strong parallels to international catwalk styles. Sri Lankan designers have a fantastic advantage in taking these traditional-modern fusions forward; this is that Sri Lanka is home to a high-tech apparel manufacturing industry, and one of the very best in the world. Through this existing infrastructure for fashion manufacture, today Sri Lanka is presenting unique and high-quality fashion that is captivating the world.
