FH by Hameedia presents sustainable men’s resort wear designs

5 December, 2021

FH by Hameedia extended its longstanding affiliation with Colombo Fashion Week (CFW) by presenting its men’s resort wear collection at the CFW’s Swim Week two-day resort wear fashion extravaganza at the Shangri-La Hotel and the Marina at the Port City recently.

This year’s CFW Swim Week focused on luxury resort wear with emphasis on the festive season and destination weddings. Sustainability was a key focal point of all designs at the event.

This season’s inspiration for the FH by Hameedia resort wear collection came from the elements of Mother Nature’s abundant resources. The collection was created with natural fabrics and colours in mind, with an emphasis on sustainability.

The designs used tea waste that has been converted into natural fabric dyes for the fashion industry, which is known to be a more environmentally-friendly alternative to traditional fabric dyes. These dyes have been infused into natural cotton or linen fabric to create an eco-sustainable product. A variety of dip-dye has been used to upcycle clothing, where it has been combined with various cultural elements in Sri Lanka to give an extraordinary look.

 With over 30 years of experience, menswear Fashion Consultant Fouzul Hameed has carved out a niche for himself in the fashion industry by focusing on how men should dress and is widely considered to be Sri Lanka›s ‘Menswear specialist’.

His impeccable collections are tailored to the needs of contemporary and fashion-conscious urban men who seek unmatched total clothing solutions with an eye for detail and an appreciation for the essence of fashion to achieve a vibrant look.
