A second-year undergraduate fashion design student, Chamanka Pehesara is a new face in the fashion industry. This is his first time showcasing as an Emerging Designer at Colombo Fashion Week. Chamanka has a keen interest in fabric manipulation and sustainable processes. For his debut at CFW, he has fused natural fabrics, dyes and printing techniques to create a collection inspired by the cracks that occur during volcanic eruptions and earthquakes. Chamanka has also used layers of raw cotton fabric to create a minimalist aesthetic in line with his brand’s vision.
