KÛR by Kasuni Rathnasuriya will showcase its garments made from Sri Lankan Beeralu Lace that mix femininity with androgyny and Sonali Dharmawardena will showcase clothing featuring Batik prints.
Jewelry will be provided by Papillon du thé by Saskia Fernando, a brand that works with craftspeople from across the Sri Lankan island. Anuk by Samaadhi Weerasinghe will showcase its latest capsule collection including its “No Waste” slip dress made in 100 percent silk and La Pard by Dinushi Pamanuwa will showcase resort-wear and lingerie.
Fernando’s own brand Maus will provide “classic everyday staples with a twist” according to the brand’s press release. Lois London by Radhika Perera-Hernandez and Cher by Chevonne will also bring their clothing lines to the event.
