CWF has created a unique model which combines fashion and resort wear and we are continuously working towards improving it. The show has grown a great deal since last year. It used to run for two days but now runs for four days and showcases all of our sub-brands that are working towards uplifting Sri Lanka’s fashion and design industry.
