What’s in store: PR Designer’s Market

The PR Designers Market will be popping up at the Mercedes Benz Colombo Jazz Festival 2017.

The PR Designers Market is a chance for our talented local designers to share their individuality at an amazing setting, the Colombo Jazz Festival at Galle Face Hotel. Expect to shop amazing product ranges at special prices in a unique pop-up by the sea!

Dodo Footwear

What will be available? Dodo loafers for men in a range of colours and introducing ladies footwear

Dodo Footwear’s handcrafted loafer for me is made in Sri Lanka. All of their raw materials from the sole to the handloom material are sourced locally and the footwear is made in Sri Lanka. Seeing as each shoe is handcrafted, this has allowed some liberty on how the final product truly is, more than just the sum of its parts. From leather to the label that nestles underneath your heel, the designers behind the brand put in a little more thought into every part that makes up a Dodo.

A brand of men’s tshirts which already have a loyal following from the soft cotton plain tshirts available at PR. Designed by Razeen Rahim, appearing out of his psychedelic suitcase which accompanies him everywhere, this range of tshirts are well priced and super comfortable.
