LONDON BORN & BASED, SRI LANKAN DESIGNER AMESH WIJESEKERA WILL SHOWCASE HIS FIRST COLLECTION AT FASHION SCOUT 2017.

A GRADUATE OF THE ACADEMY OF DESIGN SRI LANKA, AMESH, HAS APPRENTICED WITH FUTURE LABS, ZANDRA RHODES AND EDELINE LEE AND ALSO WON THE PRESTIGIOUS ORACLE INTERNATIONAL CATWALK COMPETITION AWARD AT GRADUATE FASHION WEEK IN 2016.

AMESH’S DESIGN PHILOSOPHY IS TO MERGE THE PHYSICAL AND THE EMOTIONAL WORLDS.  HE EXPLORES MINIMAL EXAGGERATED SHAPES AND FORMS WITH SOPHISTICATED TEXTILE COMBINATIONS AND DETAIL.

BOUNDARIES ARE FOR THE CONVENTIONAL HE BELIEVES, BREAKING THEM OPENS UP AN ARRAY OF POSSIBILITIES AND HE LOOKS AT DESIGN WITH NO LIMITATION, GIVING THE WEARER A NEW DEFINITION OF BEING UNDEFINED. 

THE AGEING PROCESS AND THE PHENOMENA OF DECAY IS REPRESENTED THROUGH THE COMBINATION OF HAND CRAFTED TEXTILES AND TEXTURES USING SPECIALISED PRINTING TECHNOLOGY, ARTISANAL KNITWEAR AND OTHER UNCONVENTIONAL ELEMENTS.
