The 10th edition of the Bangladesh Denim Expo, which will be held on May 2-3, 2019, at the International Convention City Bashundara, will be a hit with a new round of the Bangladesh Fashionology Summit. With ‘Circularity’ as its main theme, the Bangladesh Fashionology Summit this year, will be dedicated to the role of technology and innovation in fashion.

Taking centre stage as running theme will be ‘Circularity’, a concept on which both the future of the planet and textile industry depend. In fact, the garment industry is one of the leading contributors to the rapid deterioration of our environment, thus calling for a circular business model that can only be achieved by instigating change in the whole process of the supply chain, from design to production to communication, according to a press release on the show.

The Bangladesh Denim Expo firmly believes that, for a better future, the denim industry must adapt and instil the key principles of circularity throughout the product life cycle which includes designing of the product for longevity, considering resource efficiency, biodegradability, and recyclability; producing efficiently, ethically and with regard for the environment; and wherever possible, reuse, recycle, repurpose, any waste product.

As it tackles an ongoing and critical issue, the Bangladesh Denim Expo promises to be another successful hit, providing answers and solutions with a renewed offer featuring a series of seminar and workshop sessions in a two-day packed agenda, that will also feature the Bangladesh Fashionology Summit.

As the meeting ground for the world’s top thinkers, innovators, technology disruptors from the global fashion industry, the summit finds its rightful place in the Bangladesh Denim Expo with both events presenting deeply intertwined themes.

This year the theme will revolve around ‘Digitalisation – the Next Destination’, bringing to focus how digital and technologic advances are impacting the apparel industry and how the entire business must act to respond to this changing landscape. In a scenario constantly looking for sustainable solutions, technology and digitalisation are certainly an important part of how circularity can be further developed. Perfect embodiment of the ‘technology theme’ will be a Digital Tech Runway Show, where tech fashion designers from around the world will showcase their fashion and tech outfits. The show will also feature, for the first time ever, a tech outfit made in Bangladesh.

The summit will provide a Tech Innovation Zone (with 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, Pacfic Associates, Earlycavehuman, Foursource Group, 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, with five learning sessions exploring the many was technology can support the fashion industry.
