The graduation ceremony will start at 5 pm and it will be followed by a fashion show where the graduates will get a chance to showcase their talents to the public.

The media were given a dose of what to expect with a preview of the designs that will be shown at the ceremony. The graduates will show their talents under three different themes.

‘The sixteenth and the seventeenth century styles’ being the first theme where Ramani and Co expect to take the audience back in time to witness the glamour of classic European days.

Next they will display the designs from contemporary times. Then the audience will be given an exclusive sneak peak into future as they unveil designs based on a very whimsical, fantasy theme.

Ramani noted: “This event will be open to the public for the first time. More than 100 models will take part in this fashion show. 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.”

The Ramani Fernando-Sunsilk Hair and Beauty Academy which offers a wide range of programs on study of beauty care was inaugurated in 2005. It has already achieved a very high degree of success.

The academy provides the opportunities for students to learn and develop the fine art and skills in hairdressing and beauty care. It is a good platform to nurture budding young talent. Students islandwide take part in the degree program.

The event will be sponsored by Sunsilk. Ramani has been in partnership with Sunsilk for over 25 years and appreciates the patronage extended to this academy by Unilever Sri Lanka.

This year’s awards ceremony will also feature a number of highly talented students from the regions who came to the academy after winning scholarships through the Sunsilk Hedakari workshops held across the island.

Sharing his thoughts with the Daily News, Pushpa Sri Prasad from Panadura said, “Training under Ramani means we have added value to our career and the individual attention and guidance to our profession. I am grateful to the team for giving me the opportunity to join this course.”
