Fashion shootingstar Wijesekera explores his roots and crossover life between London and Sri Lanka

Fashion shooting star Amesh Wijesekera officially opened the shows at the Mercedes Benz Fashion Week in Berlin on Tuesday with his unique mix of traditions in Sri Lanka and London fashion. Psychedelic colours and shapes and mythical landscapes surrounding the island are brought to life by skilled weavers and knitting artisans from his homeland, Wijesekera told Reuters TV. Indigenous craftsmanship is combined with high tech manufacturing knowledge to create his timeless statements. The celebrated wunderkind from the Sri Lankan design institute AOD does not believe in the power of big labels, he said. For him the label is about clothes and the feeling they give the wearer. “(C)lothing is for all, idea for shared wardrobe, you know, anyone could wear anything and even my clothing is very, it’s very open and free and liberating I feel.”Until Friday, some 16 designers will present their collections at Germany’s international fashion event. According to Mercedes Benz, the fashion week in Berlin is designed to promote young designers.
