Dhaka will host the Bangladesh denim expo on March 1 and 2, 2017. The show offers international fashion buyers a one-stop sourcing platform for all aspects of jeans wear. Exclusive to authorized trade visitors, the expo acts as a hub for players on the international denim scene to mingle with colleagues, make new contacts and broker deals.
It will enable buyers and manufacturers to interact and establish future relationships. The show will bring together a selection of highly respected denim mills. The theme is ‘Denim Mashup’. This is a youth-centric denim theme, especially for young women, which brings the fun-feel of the ’90s complete with allover embellishment, shredding and chain details, embroideries, exaggerated proportions, quilted surfaces, fabric mixes etc.
Brands like Gucci to fast fashion retailers like Zara and H&M, all are taking up this as the next cool denim trend in 2017. The show will recreate this theme using products from some of the key global denim suppliers and bringing them together under this theme. In addition there will be seminars, live presentations, panel discussions and workshops on global denim innovations and trends.
Bangladesh is the fastest growing denim destination globally for sourcing fabrics and has been growing exponentially and quickly rising up the value chain.
