Denimsandjeans.com Bangladesh show concluded successfully on the 3rd of March at Dhaka. This was the fifth edition of the show and the show had a greater response compared to the last 3 shows. With the theme being Denim Playground, the focus was on denim as a sportswear and increasingly targeting to become an activewear product. The whole show was designed to reflect a play area . The trend zone was reflecting a stadium with a football field in front and a race track around it. In fact the presence of a race track in the whole exhibition area added a touch of sportsmanship to the whole show and many attendees just took to it literally !

Bangladesh Fashion Students' Contest

For the first time, the students of Bangladesh Fashion Universities were involved in a contest related to denim products for an international audience. The students of 3 universities BUFT, SMUCT and NIFT participated in the contest organized at our show to bring out some innovative designs in denim created by local designer students. Here, it would be pertinent to mention that the students had less than a month to prepare for the contest and they worked overtime to bring out some innovative designs . The best designs were selected after an extensive voting by all the visitors and exhibitors. The designs which got the highest votes were awarded the first three places at the contest. A special thanks to Envoy Group for their generous fabric contribution, as well as Arief Labu for his help with materials and hands-on design guidance. Thanks also to local professionals, Tanveer Mehedy, Afsana Ferdous Wormsey, Rajee Monjur, Kaartik Sazid, and Shuvo Monju for sharing their time and expertise with more than 100 students. A final note of thanks to Rafique Siddiqui of SMUCT and Golab Rabbani of NIFT for facilitating workshops at their campuses. This competition was organized and guided by Anna Troupe, a sustainable design lecturer and social entrepreneur based in Dhaka.
