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.

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'.
