Explain your idea in details:

Sun is a primary factor which contributes for tourism industry. Because sun determines the climatic condition of a certain region, Ecology is adapted according to the climate and human social and economic factors are originated accordingly. Man is an adaptive animal according to the nature; his internal conditions within the body are determined accordingly. Melanin level differs and accordingly stimuli to expose to the sun changes. So that everyone every now and then is exposed to various skin diseases when exposed to the sun. Thus there should be even a simple preventive method of which tourists can enjoy the different climates without exposing to burns or rashes or diseases caused by UV. Almost all the process of the project is kept ecofriendly while its a nice way of living within the nature instead of living on the earth. And also this is a good model as an approach to the sustainable way of future industry. Climatic change is a global challenge in tourism but tourism does not take place if without changing the climate. The product acts as a protective way of wearing for UV rays when exposing to the sun or else the coldness by mist. All can enjoy each climate without congestion. It naturally reacts with the skin and regulates the body. There are methods among man kind to prevent infections and germ caused diseases instead of vaccination. The project introduces you a new way of affiliating natural remedy for easy day today use. Just you need to do is shift from your usual way of wearing into naturally treated clothing.

Your profile

I am Nadeeshani Batangala; a freelance fashion designer and an undergraduate of Fashion Design and Product Development at University of Moratuwa and doing an HND in International Relations at Metropolitan college Sri Lanka. At my young age I have done a professional certificate course in pattern making at Singer Fashion academy; there I obtained the first place at casual wear category at Singer fashion show 2017. There my model outfit was completely designed with waste fabric also colored with natural textures (mud patches from the paddy field/ fungi/rust). I need to compromise the above mentioned project in order to set a new way of fashion as fitting to the century. Also I need to take part in the interrelationship among the nations worldwide and to associate different nations and their values. I habitually love the nature I always need to see the embedded beauty within it. Thus my skill is for fashion design and I make effort to emboss that secret beauty out of textile designs. Also I love my countrys tradition and I need to make others wonder on it. I always love the people without discrimination and I wish to make various natives in one line where all can share the globe in common. As Im a single person to do this revolution I manage to start my journey at this level. If I can see every man is being same thats my eternal consolation. I need to use my countrys resources, make its real benefit according to the century and share it with all the nations.

The idea is not quite clear to me, is it a clothing or a cream that protects the uv rays. Are you developing a product ? You need to be clear from the very beginning about what it is you are developing. I'll check it out tomorrow for your review. Take a look at mine here

Nadeesh, your idea is innovative and unconventional.

One which has lots of prospects in terms of patronage and capital.

And I believe that with a well and simplified understanding of your idea, it will go a long way in the market.

I would also love to know more of this unique idea because it's in relation to my idea- fashion and designing and possibly do business with you in the future.

I wish you awesomeness in your work and in the competition.

In addition to this, i suggest you come to terms with us about your project and simplify it so that those of us with artistic brains can understand your ecological and organic product.

Best regards dear.
