The second edition of the Bangladesh Fashionology Summit and the 10th edition of the Bangladesh Denim Expo ended on a successful note. The international trade show for the denim value chain, that includes fabric, finishes, washes, and accessories, was held on May 2-3, 2019. Around 63 exhibitors from 11 countries represented the global denim community.

The summit was a platform for thinkers, innovators, experts, and educators to share innovative ideas on this edition’s main theme, ‘Digitalisation – the Next Destination’. Sessions were provided to learn more on how innovation, specifically digitalisation, fits in the world of the fashion industry, according to a press release on the show.

The summit also provided a Tech Innovation Zone (Tech Innovators: Trustrace, Shimmy Technologies, Infinited Fiber, Seachange Technologies, Reverse Resource) in collaboration with Fashion For Good, a platform for innovators to meet with the other components of the eco system, and an Exhibition Zone (Exhibitors: Pivot88, Lectra, Sindabad.com, Pacific Associates, Earlycavehuman, Foursource Group GmbH, A2i-Access to Information, GoBlu, Rudholm Group, QuizRR, BRAC, SNV, SR Asia, Swiss Contact) for companies to showcase their latest innovations, paying special attention to information sharing.

Five learning sessions, dealt with by 41 speakers from 13 countries, explored the many ways technology can support the fashion industry. These include digitalisation of supply chain – to cut costs and reduce lead times, transparency in global supply chain, innovation in the era of the fours industrial revolution, technology for decent work and environment, and policy dialogue on future skills development.

Topping it all off was a Digital Tech Runway Show curated by Labeledby, featuring the first time ever tech outfit made in Bangladesh, where smart wearable by world’s renowned fashion tech designers were showcased.

The event turned out to be the ultimate platform for the discovery of new business opportunities, learning upcoming business rules and providing inspiration for possible steps into the future. Considering the times we live in, this year’s theme, circularity, was extremely important as it tackles an ongoing issue that the fashion industry, especially, must confront in order to create a new scenario where environmental impact is reduced to a minimum. The expo provided a two-day packed event that included informative seminars, stimulating workshops and engaging round table discussions on circularity.

Denim was certainly in the spotlight in many of the seminars that had, as their focus, the binomial denim-circularity. Additionally, the traditional indigo fabric was the centre of attention of live demonstrations on how to machine & hand repair jeans, transforming them into works of art. (GK)
