Amesh Debuts with a Gender Neutral Collection at London Fashion Week SS18

Amesh Wijesekera showcased his debut collection at London Fashion Week SS18 in collaboration with SRI, a luxury sustainable lifestyle label launching in February 2018.

In Sanskrit, ‘SRI’ means resplendent, a name which encapsulates the unique beauty of the design but also the pride and wonder of a nation looking to its future.

 SRI is an inspiring bridge between two worlds. This trans-seasonalbrand (gender neutral) is a unique and creative meeting of the millennia-old wisdom of South Asia and the progressive, technologically advanced demands of global high fashion.

 Low-tech meets high-tech in a progressive new addition to the luxury design market.

 An alumnus of the AOD Colombo in Sri Lanka, Amesh captures the essence of his home country; celebrated by the sophisticated traveller as a tropical paradise, the island is filled with pristine white-sand beaches, lush tropical forests and breathtaking mountains.

The debut collection for SRI perfectly depicts the cultural inspiration of Early Ceylon; the history, lifestyle and fashions whilst Amesh creates a modern and contemporary range appealing to a cultured, carefree, adventurous consumer.

 SRI is unique and Amesh has worked closely with design leaders in his native homeland; the range is a mixture of local craft blended with modern techniques; dip dyeing and screen prints are expertly blended with hand woven silks.

 Working with local weaving villages, local craftspeople have highlighted their expertise through their intricate handcrafted overshots, twills, ombre and herring bone effects.

 SRI serves as a source of comfort, self-confidence and self-expression as effortlessly in the urban jungles of London and New York in winter as amidst the rainforests and beaches of their island of origin in the blaze of summer.
