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.

3000 Year Old : Natural Indigo Dyeing Workshop From Rajasthan, India

Indigo dyeing has been done in countries like China, Indian Sub Continent and other parts of the world. However, it has been preserved well by some artisan families in Rajasthan . Mr Lal from one such family in Rajasthan which has been practicing natural indigo and other dyes for over 500 years gave workshop on the process of dyeing . As the workshop started, it turned out to be more interesting and exciting as there’s a magnetic lure to the process of indigo-dyeing by hand – looking at the fabric going from black to green to blue ! . Designers are at it nationally and globally, and retail players peddle hard-to-resist indigo collections. The magic stays until the fabric is put to wash. The color runs, and runs some more, with each wash. The workshop was also broadcasted live by the organizers and it received global response.
