The 14th Colombo Fashion Week (CFW) aims to promote Sri Lanka's capital city as a centre for progressive fashion and take the country's fashion industry to the next level. The fashion extravaganza will take place from March 13-18 and will include Emerging Designers Showcase, Knowledge Workshops, Ethical Fashion Day, Project 7 and much more.

The Emerging Designers Showcase will be a platform for aspiring designers who have been chosen by a panel of judges. The designers have been mentored by the CFW team to produce their CFW Summer '18 collections. The Ethical Fashion Day resonates with the organiser's vision for sustainable, conscious and good fashion.

Project 7 is a specialised programme that features a series of workshops for participants to influence their creativity and ideation process with a new perspective. CFW Frame encompassing fashion and art will also be a part of the upcoming fashion week to merge fashion with various art forms and movies. The Fashion + Food segment of CFW aims to make the show a celebration of style and taste.

"Designer development has been the foundation of CFW since its inception, from an industry perspective, as it is instrumental in building the next generation of designers. This I believe, is the key ingredient of a healthy fashion and design industry. While planning the year ahead, we carefully look at all aspects of the fashion design industry, to plan intervention for its betterment. This will always be our focus," said Ajai Vir Singh, founder of CFW. (KD)
