Circularity on Fashion in the New 2021 Environment
Colombo Fashion Week in its 18th year introduces an important aspect of sustainability which is an urgent need around the world to make Circularityin-Fashion work. This emphasis is themed as the Week of Circularity. This focus aims to propel the fashion design industry of Sri Lanka to transform itself and create fashion products which are relevant in this new environment. 2021 is a year of transformation for fashion, as in 2020 fashion was forced to restructure in every possible way.
Post-COVID, the fashion industry is in a new terrain like many other sectors; however, it is also presented with new opportunities. The entire environment, and society, of fashion has evolved to fit this new reality and with it, consumption patterns have also drastically changed. How people view, buy, consume and relate to fashion is undergoing an enormous shift.
