While maintaining the legacy as a household brand is important, it is equally crucial to adapt to appeal to a younger demographic. The Bandarawela store which previously encompassed close to 500 sqft now boasts over 3,000 sqft of retail space where we offer trendy and fashionable ranges alongside our classic offerings, and we are making an effort to stay current with the latest trends. We have also redesigned the store’s interior to have a more modern and stylish feel, with a layout that presents our products more clearly for a seamless shopping experience.”
Established in 1994 with a team of seven people in Bandarawela, with its first store occupying a small 500 square feet space in the town, Fashion Bug was founded by Mr. Rizal and Ashan Subian. Today it has evolved into a household brand that boasts 14 outlets island-wide with a workforce that comprises over a thousand individuals of different ethnicities and backgrounds. Fashion Bug takes pride in being a Sri Lankan fashion retailer that showcases locally designed and manufactured brands produced in small and medium-sized factories while introducing international brands and global trends to the country, thus creating unrivalled fashion and lifestyle experiences for the Sri Lankan consumer.
