EKKO launches new line of Women’s Clothing
On Friday 31 July 2020, Premier clothing brand EKKO launched its new line of Women’s clothing for the first time at their Flagship Store at One Galle Face Mall. After many years of focusing on Men’s apparel, EKKO will be venturing into Women’s clothing to cater to a new customer base, (including the female partners and friends of its existing customers) and address the needs of fashion-conscious consumers. EKKO Women’s clothing will also be available at Cotton Collection Colombo 7 and at select ODEL stores in the near future and can be ordered online at www.ekko.style
EKKO will focus on producing everyday essentials to a woman’s wardrobe and as part of the initial collection have created beautifully-crafted Linen, Linen-Blends and Cotton styles, designed for women who appreciate and love the finest quality & comfort. Styles will range from casual to formal including items such as tops, bottoms (skirts & shorts), pants, jumpsuits, dresses, rompers and more!
With plenty of involvement in the fashion industry and incorporating their own personal style and taste into the designs, founders, Lalantha and Erosha Watudura have a fantastic vision for their clothing line. With the new collection hitting physical stores, they are setting up for even bigger ventures in the years ahead. They plan to take the brand overseas by setting up physical stores globally and reach a wider audience.
EKKO has also been busy creating a powerful vision that ties closely into using high-quality sustainable materials in Linen and Cotton and producing garments that are Made in Sri Lanka. EKKO is empowering Sri Lankan designers by recruiting and collaborating with them to get a great mix of skills and artistry. For EKKO, sustainable fashion means supporting and developing young skills in craftsmanship, giving them training, a job, a positive work environment, and a flexible work-life balance as success should also be about the well-being of those who make what we wear.
ELH (EL Holdings), the designer, manufacturer and distributor of EKKO was established in 2001 under the ownership of Lalantha and Erosha Watudura and has been a trusted international apparel sourcing agency for more than two decades for globally renowned clothing brands. EKKO – its own clothing line, has a core product range that includes Men’s Casual Shirts and Formal Shirts, Jeans for Men and Women, and now the new Women’s collection in Linen, Linen Blends and Cotton. In 2015 EKKO was awarded the Industry ‘Best Brand’ Award at the Mercedes Benz Fashion & Apparel Awards, which added prestige and value to the brand, and since then, EKKO has been making great strides with a dedicated following amongst both fashion conscious Sri Lankans and foreigners who appreciate Linen wear and fine Cotton wear, which EKKO is known for.
