As per Mostafiz Uddinh, Founder and CEO, Bangladesh Apparel Exchange, increase in wages and production cost is forcing the country’s garment manufacturers to make value-added products, the country plans to focus on smart clothing. This shift from basic items to value-added ones has to be done slowly with proper planning and execution and the upcoming Bangladesh Fashionology Summit will help facilitate that shift.
The second Bangladesh Fashionology Summit 2019 will be held from May 2, 2019 at the International Convention City Bashundhara in Dhaka. It will strengthen the country’s position to fetch its share in the US $ 130 billion smart clothing market.
To be attended by 41 speakers from 15 countries, the event ‘Digitisation-the Next Destination’-will bring together fashion experts from across the world. In addition to keynotes, exhibits and knowledge-sharing sessions, the summit will also provide a platform for start-ups to showcase their cutting edge innovation in fashion. There will also be a Tech Innovation Zone to exhibit the best of the latest fashion technologies and innovations.
