Fashion Callout – Sajani Amarasiri

Latest looks, bang-on buys and ways to add cool to your closet by the trendiest fashionistas in town.

Sajani Amarasiri (Founder & CEO– Colombo Cooperative) reveals the secrets to her style.

  • What’s your fashion motto? To wear whatever I feel the most powerful and confident in.
  • The favourite pair of shades in my closet: I have many fun and low-key ones but the cat eye pair from Quay is a good mix of edgy and class.
  • The fashion statements I dislike? The ones that I can clearly see someone being uncomfortable wearing them.
  • How’s your bed time beauty routine like? Complicated as it fluctuates since I have been traveling a lot. Usually, I double cleanse and use Drunk Elephant T.L.C Framboos Glycolic Night Serum followed by Drunk Elephant Marula Oil. Then I dab on some Kiehl’s Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado. In addition to that, I try to write for what I’m grateful for that day to take care of my inner beauty.
  • I celebrate the little successes that come along my way with my husband. We normally go to our favourite donut place in the world which is called General Porpoise and it’s SO good!
  • Style crush: Victoria Beckham.
  • On days when you don’t feel like dolling up, how do you get motivated? My daily process is super simple, hair tied back, a light layer of foundation and blush. And when I’m not in the mood, I don’t push myself. Instead I just go out and kill it with the personality.
  • The three most-listened songs on my Ipod are: Don’t have an iPod — I prefer podcasts over music, but my top three song picks would be: Rise by Andra Day, Bodak Yellow by Cardi B, and anything Beyonce.
  • My favourite fashion trend of all time is a well cut blazer!
  • The craziest thing I have ever done for love is contemplated to not chase my dreams then I snapped back to reality.
  • What’s that one quote that you always want to be known for? “Life is a manifestation of where your energy is flowing”.
  • A change that I’d like to see in the fashion industry is more short people being represented, I am 5’2 and you don’t see anyone my size on a runway. So here’s to more diversity!
