Design Development

The Emerging Designer Development Program and the resulting showcase is the engine that supplies designers for the fashion design industry.

With a clear focus on guiding and mentoring aspiring designers, the program is in line with Colombo Fashion Week’s vision since inception of elevating the country’s fashion industry in all aspects of designer development, including designer retail infrastructure. The strength of designers to follow will determine the future of Sri Lankan fashion. The Emerging Designer showcase focuses on just that by honing the skills of young designers and providing them with a platform to grow their talent.

The designers are enriched with the know-how on fine-tuning their respective brands and collections to better appeal to an audience comprising of established designers, editors, buyers and influencers, both on and off the runway and particularly in terms of fashion retail.
