Birth of the Brand
EKKO is the brainchild of Lalantha Watudura, an expert with decades of exposure and insider knowledge in the fashion industry.
“I was first exposed to the fashion and apparel industry growing up as a child when I was assisting my mother in her Batik & Handloom business, where my curiosity and interest in the industry initially sparked. So naturally I had wanted to pursue a career in fashion since a young age. In 1990 I started my career in the global fashion apparel industry, and by 2001, I became an independent sourcing partner; servicing multiple international clothing brands. This experience coupled with my passion for excellence and responsible fashion grew my desire to carve my own path in the industry, which led to the birth of EKKO in 2013. The idea behind EKKO was to create a reflection of lifestyle and a fashion brand for Men & Women that is not only premium quality but also the best value and provides a complete wardrobe solution. I believe our commitment to product integrity and ethically-made fashion is what will allow us to position and sustain globally.
When you have the conviction to do something and challenge yourself, doors will always open.”
