THE POWER OF CHANGE AND ITS IRONY IS WHAT CREATES SOCIETY AND DESIGN. AMESH WIJESKERA'S DESIGN PHILOSOPHY IS TO MERGE THE PHYSICAL AND THE EMOTIONAL. AS HER DEVELOPS HIS THOUGHT PROCESS AND NARRATIVE; HER EXPLORE 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. A JUXTAPOSITION OF LIFE, SOCIETY, CULTURE, ART AND PHILOSOPHY BRING ABOUT THE BASIS OF THIS COLLECTION.

INSPIRED BY THE NOTION OF THE IMPERMANENT STATE OF ALL OBJECTS AND BEINGS, THE COLLECTION BRINGS TO LIFE THE JUXTAPOSITION OF THE OPULENT SPECTACLE OF THE ITALIAN RENAISSANCE AND ITS SPLENDOUR AGAINST THE SUPERFICIAL REALITIES OF LIFE.

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

"DETACHING FORM THE MATERIAL WORLD, I EXPLORED THE DEPTH OF OUR EXISTENCE.
THINGS WE CONSUME, THEY ALL FADE AWAY, INCLUDING OURSELVES.
TO ME THIS IS A BEAUTIFUL MYSTERY." - AMESH WIJESKERA
