Embark, the fashion brand with a unique cause, has opened its third independent store in Kandy, a city with which it has built a strong affinity.
Located at No 30 on the third floor of the Kandy City Centre (KCC) mall, the Embark store is a more compact version of the standalone Embark store in the Galle Fort and replicates its ambience, while offering a brand new and extensive range of clothing, footwear and accessories for men, women and children. Under the guidance of Otara Gunewardene, the brand has forged ahead to project itself as a fully-fledged fashion brandwhich seeks to inspire individuals to be a part of a worthy cause and be fashionable at the same time.
Colourful and edgy, the store’s distinctively ‘Embark’ décor is dominated by Embark founder Otara’s trio of adopted street dogs Niko, Bandit and Rozzy, who have inspired many popular Embark collections of clothing and accessories.
Embark ventured into independent retail in August this year with the opening of its Galle store and has since opened a second store at the departure lounge of the Bandaranaike International Airport. The brand is also available at Odel Alexandra Place and Odel K Zone, Ja-Ela.
The brand says it hopes to do more work with street dogs and communities through the sale of its products, and give a bigger platform to a very special Sri Lankan breed of dog which is otherwise unwanted and mostly unloved.
