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.

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.
