A part of the annual ‘French Spring Festival 2016’ presented by the Embassy of France and the network of the Alliance Francaise in Sri Lanka, it will take visitors on a journey of the multiple uses of French lace, both in couture and design.

This year the students of Mod’ART Sri Lanka and the Lanka Institute of Fashion Technology will together create innovative pieces of art by using French lace. They will weave a tapestry of ideas and innovations to create exquisite style statements and bring concepts to life. 

Harnessing their creativity, these students will create unconventional fashion products such as trendy umbrellas, modern face veils with hats, men’s shirts, ties, shoes and many other items incorporating lace as decorative fabric.
