talents to the public.

audience will be given an exclusive sneak peak into future as they
unveil designs based on a very whimsical, fantasy theme.

Hairstyles will all be hand-woven by students from the academy. The
event will be choreographed and coordinated by Seneka de Silva while the
costumes will be designed by Michael Wijesuriya.”
