Diversity and Inclusion in the fashion industry
It is no secret that beauty rules the roost in the colourful world of fashion and glamour, but several renowned global fashion designers are now slowly but steadily bringing fresh perspective to this sphere by focusing on inclusive fashion - showcasing collections of adaptive clothing, largely for the differently challenged people. For the first time in Sri Lanka Rex Fernando and I collaboraed with Sri Lankan counterparts to present a revolutionary fashion show where differently-abled models walked & wheeled down the ramp together with the abled models.
The fashion show featured a number of designers from India, Dubai, France, Sri Lanka & the USA. There were participating models from France, Angola, South Africa, Finlande, Belarussia, Greece, Sri Lanka and Ukraine. I want to challenge the traditional rules of Asian European Fasion Week!
