Colombo Fashion Week is a developmental project that aims to drive progressive change in every aspect of the fashion industry in Sri Lanka. Since its inception in 2003, CFW has focused on nurturing the next generation of Sri Lankan fashion designers. In its 18th year, the 2021 edition of CFW is themed as the “Week of Circularity” where the focus is on encouraging the fashion design industry of Sri Lanka to transform itself and create fashion products which are relevant to the new environment. Given the widespread impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, 2021 is seen as the year of transformation for the fashion industry. Having restructured significantly in 2020, like many other industries, the fashion industry is attempting to make changes to align to the realities of the new normal where consumption patterns have changed drastically.
