ColomboFashion Week (HSBC CFW) the backbone of Sri Lanka’s fashion design industry, continues its ongoing endeavour to build promising young fashion design talent in the country with its CFW Day. The CFW team recently hosted its third CFW Day at the University of Moratuwa, Sri Lanka. The University is one of the country's leading technological higher education institutes that continuously excels’ both locally and globally.
Commenting on this initiative, Ajai Vir Singh, President, Colombo Fashion Weekstated: "CFW is single-mindedly focused on enhancing the Sri Lankan fashion design industry. We have always felt the need to invest more in young talent and we personally take young people through real life experiences in the marketplace. We are very excited about CFW Day events and BrightSpark shows. With God’s grace, the Sri Lankan talent pool will increase with this project as we expose young designers to more skills and experts from the industry."
Commenting on the importance of CFW Day, Dr. Nirmali De Silva, Senior Lecturer, Department of Textile and Clothing Technology, University of Moratuwa, Colombo stated, “After a very successful first event on campus we believe that initiatives such as CFW Day truly do contribute towards helping our designers develop their potential. This is a great learning experience which inspires our students and helps them build their careers.”
Last year Colombo Fashion Week developed CFW Day to expose fashion students to the various aspects of the fashion industry. The first CFW Day was held at the University of Moratuwa in December 2013.Following its success, the team also recently held its second CFW Day at the Raffles Design Institute, Colombo. Initiatives such as this have been created specifically by Colombo Fashion Week in order to groom and nurture Sri Lanka’s future fashion designers and the country’s design potential at large.
