Renowned menswear specialist and Hameedia Managing Director Fouzul Hameed will continue to uplift menswear fashion in Sri Lanka, by presenting the fourth edition of the annual ‘Envoy Concept’, a showcase on December 3, 2016, under the theme ‘infini8’.
Concept is the only menswear fashion show of its kind and is conceptualised and presented in accordance with the highest international standards. Hameedia is the only menswear brand that forecasts all of the latest local, global fashion trends and showcases its collections and styles a year in advance.
Concept 2017 — infini8 will showcase a total of eight new collections that will be inspired by the essence of liberty and elegance that are quintessential to effortless style. Drawing inspiration from the theme ‘infini8’, the collections will feature indigo prints and patterns, hounds tooth fabrics, chic British fashions, handlooms and linens, earthy hues and tones, street styles from Milan as well as ceremonial attire.
Sleek sophistication and elegance will be evident in each collection, which will encompass the finest fabrics, embellishments, cuts and designs from around the world. Each piece featured in the show will be designed and tailored using both age-old tailoring techniques and the latest technology to achieve a final look and feel that has an impeccable finish. The latest edition will focus heavily on the international market and will be pitched to international buyers.
Commenting on the highly anticipated showcase, Hameed stated, “The Envoy Concept showcase is the most anticipated menswear spectacular in the country and is a key highlight in the local fashion calendar. The show was created to transform the menswear fashion arena in Sri Lanka and it offers the men of today the fashion knowledge and inspiration that they need to become the men of tomorrow. The way someone dresses defines their personality and how they are perceived by the world.
The Concept 2017 — infini8 showcase will enable men with differing aspirations to embrace the best fashion choices for every occasion. A man needs many things to live a wholesome and enriched life - health, comfort, shelter, happiness, opportunities and support are all integral to a man’s success. However, the ability to be well groomed and make a strong style statement can truly redefine a man and it can bolster the confidence and power that he exudes in his professional and personal life.
Concept 2017 — infini8 will showcase an extensive range of clothing and will project many up-and-coming trends, that will inspire Sri Lankan men to step out in style on any occasion.”
