Nimasha Deshapriya is a person who leads a simple lifestyle, by spending most of her spare time with family and friends.
Questioning about her collection, the inspiration was derived from geometric shapes and flower appliques connected to the art movement “cubism”, with a named theme “Geocubi Appliques”.
What is it to be meant by Geocubi Appliques?
It is a combination of geometric shapes with selected art movement to create a unique and mesmerising look upon the garment.
College life and academics
According to Nimasha her college life & academics was one of the amazing and cherishing moments in her life, which was a completely different circulation from school life because college paved her the pathway in order to learn what she wanted in her own style.
She has also participated in few competitions such as Beach Carnival-Sand Sculpture Competition (2015), Mother and Daughter Group Competition (Menswear Category) and Edex Fashion Show (2018). When speaking about her college academics, I also got to know that the interacting lecturers and co-colleagues were very helpful when it comes to sections like drafting, draping and sewing a garment. Nimasha’s college learning experience was a wonderful thought because she had to work in hand with models, photographers, and make-ups to do a complete fashion photo-shoot to gain the maximum knowledge in understanding the area thoroughly.
