A Fashion Personality is the combination of items that form your distinctive fashion style. Fashion Personalities are a guide to help you identify what you want to dress like. Keahra Mudalige was born in Sri Lanka, but moved to Dubai in her childhood and grew up there for 25 years. She cherishes the memories of growing up within a multicultural city with the opportunity to experience different traditions, fashion trends, and cuisines.
Keahra has graduated with a Bachelors’s Degree in Hospitality Management from the Emirates Academy of Hospitality Management. Her family owned a far Eastern Restaurant in Dubai. This gave her the privilege to gain firsthand experience within the restaurant and catering arena working on marketing projects and event coordination during her university days.
She moved to Sri Lanka in 2017 and Co-Founded Platter Parties along with her mother, after noticing a lack of gourmet catering concepts in Sri Lanka, during the time being. She was also involved with King of The Mambo during their pre-opening and was the Brand Ambassador for the 1st year. Keahra is currently one of the Brand Ambassadors for Nail Spa, Sri Lanka. She has always been fashion-forward, experimenting and trying to come up with new styles. Her sense of style is an exciting balance of feminine, elegant, and fashionable pieces put together.
Keahra is the lady behind the popular Instagram page Colombo Street Style. The page currently focuses on food, fashion, and holiday getaways in Sri Lanka. Her personal style has reformed over the years. She loved high street brands such as Zara and BCBG Max Azria, but after moving back to Sri Lanka her style has adapted to what suits the climate. Commenting on her sense of style, Keahra stated, “I would say casual trendy is my go-to. I have come to like a few local brands and am always on the look for flowy pants and dresses to stay cool and comfortable. Comfort is something that I consider when choosing an outfit. I also feel that I’m gravitating to more printed outfits to merge the vibrancy of colour with the tropical climate”
One’s personal style changes and evolves as one grows. According to her, it’s important to embrace these changes while keeping with current trends that reflect you’re personality. When it comes to shopping for clothes she prefers traditional retail shopping, as it allows her to examine the fabrics in person. “An outfit that looks great in pictures may not suit me or my body shape. Trying them on first and then buying it is my motto”, she added.
Style is a personal taste and Keahra believes one should always feel comfortable and confident in the outfit that they choose to adorn no matter the time of day or type of occasion. Keahra’s social media portrays her life while being impeccably stylish, vibrant, and colourful. From everyday looks to travel posts, promoting her brands, lifestyle, and fashion.
Here are Keahra’s top five style tips to express yourself through your outfits:
- When making a purchase take notice of the fabric, the fit, and the finish.
- Always go with colours and fits that complement your skin tone and body shape.
- When buying a new item think of how you can expand your purchase through the mix and match approach with the items you already have in your wardrobe.
- Spend time going through your wardrobe every three to six months mixing and matching the outfits you currently have and getting rid of what you don’t need to create your seasonal capsule wardrobe.
- Create your style by trying out the clothes you have in your wardrobe. Have your own mini fashion show in front of the mirror; this will help you truly get to know your comfort spot with your personal fashion style.
