A Local’s Guide to Colombo, Sri Lanka, with Fashion Designer Annika Fernando
When designer Annika Fernando opened PR Sri Lanka in 2013 — the Sri Lankan capital of Colombo’s premier fashion boutique with curated items from the best designers in Sri Lanka and India — she had no idea the store would eventually inspire her own line, Maus. Fernando’s work as a mentor to young designers provided a natural way to feature their work in her boutique, where you’ll find luxurious hand-printed batik kaftans, textured tunics, silk strapless gowns, and sandalwood and gemstone jewelry. Between designing her label and running her store, Fernando still finds time to explore her beloved Colombo. Jetsetter found out her favorite places to eat, stay, and play.
