For the third consecutive year, the SL Design Festival will run a broad ranging programme comprising of fashion shows, business to business meetings, factory visits, workshops and the forums including first South Asian Apparel Leadership Forum that will open doors to new business, networks and opportunities in the businesses of fashion, design and apparel.

This promising 2011 edition scheduled to take place from November 16-20 under the theme of 'Close-up on Sri Lanka' at the Mt. Lavinia Hotel; a 200 year old colonial mansion turned suburban, sea-side resort, promises to be an unforgettable experience for both commercial and casual visitors across the globe.

The festival provides a valuable prospect to apparel industry buyers, brands, retailers, SMEs, designers and fashion opinion leaders to obtain an insight in to Sri Lanka's award-winning ethical, apparel industry by getting the opportunity to meet a variety of world class factories as part of their tailor made itineraries and to conduct business-to-business meetings which will be pre-matched for them by the SLDF team facilitating unique sourcing opportunities in Sri Lanka.

Apart from this, a main event that gathers some of the biggest names in local and international fashion and apparel is the South Asian Apparel Leadership Forum.

This prestigious forum discusses topics that impact the fashion and apparel industry as it stands whilst hearing about what initiatives are taking place across the industry and from a host country point Sri Lanka will share its unique practices giving insight in to why Sri Lanka is known as the words sustainable fashion sourcing destination.

In addition to a 'Close – up on Fashion and Apparel' .SLDF also provides two equally powerful agendas and programs parallel to the fashion and apparel agenda on traditional craft in contemporary creation and cutting edge design under the themes 'Close-up on Crafts' and 'Close-up on design'.
