Who We Are
INDI is the signature label of House of INDI, headed by Creative Director Indi Yapa Abeywardena. She laid the foundation to the firm in 2010. She commenced the company in Sri Lanka after completing her fashion MBA in London. It was started with the introduction of the brand Indi which is the main signature label of the company. She consistently showcased her work at the Colombo Fashion Week and gradually developed her clientele. In 2014, she introduced IBride. And in 2016 she introduced her diffusion line Indi Diva.
A first by any Sri Lankan Fashion designer. The purpose of a diffusion line is to create a fashion collection by a high-end fashion house that retails at lower prices, creating affordability of a designer brand to any customer, which will be stocked at ICO Sri Lanka. This range is separate from her “signature line”, or principal artistic line.
“I want to establish a kind of venue where unique designers from various fields gather together and encounter each other in an environment of beautiful chaos, this mixes up together with different customers who all can share a dialogue of one’s passion,” said Indi Yapa Abeywardena.
Later on, all three brands were brought under one store named Indi & Co.
