Gaetano Navarra Enthralls Colombo

Navarra revealed the magnificence of Milan opening the finale day of Colombo
Fashion Week SS’17 season. The highly precious and sought after archival
collection was showcased to a packed house leaving every guest amazed at the
splendor of the creations which celebrated his 25 years at Milan Fashion Week.
Every piece showed finery of his workmanship and left the guests spellbound.
Fashion Week invites at least five established and renowned international
designers every season with the key objective of creating a knowledge sharing
base between international and Sri Lankan designers. This creates interesting
opportunities for Sri Lankan designers to be exposed to string international
designers who have made an impact internationally.
was part of our plan right from the beginning as I saw that the Sri Lankan
fashion industry was quite insulated, there was no structure to expose Sri
Lankan fashion designers regularly to the work of important international
designers. This is intentionally done for the betterment of Sri Lankan
designers and in return this has been fruitful. Gaetano is one of the top
designers at Milan Fashion Week for last so many years. It was a privilege to
see him at CFW.” Says Ajai V Singh, Founder and President of Colombo Fashion
and rebel, with a strong legacy yet innovative, in homage to his name that not
incidentally brings to mind one of the proudest reigns of Medieval Spain. Gaetano Navarra reflects just that as
a creator of a concept of elegance and of a style attitude that are multi-faceted
and original, rock-solid and yet full of poetry and enchantment. This leads to
extraordinary results in a process for the offer of a full 360°-lifestyle, and
incredibly engaging one. 
opening of the Day 4 finale day of CFW was Gaetano which began with a tribute
film of his iconic collections shown over the years at Milan Fashion Week and
the models that walked for him over the years, among others, were the iconic
Naomi Campbell, Linda Evangelista, Helena Christiansen and Claudia Schiffer.
