YarnsandFibers News Bureau 2017-11-08 13:00:00 – Dhaka

The Fashion Design Council of Bangladesh recently organized TRESemmé Khadi 'The Future Fabric Show 2017, the most anticipated fashion events of the year comprising both local and international designers, who have collaborated to achieve the same goal of revitalizing khadi.

This year's ceremony is divided in two segments— the two-day Fashion Show on November 3-4 at International Convention City Bashundhara (ICCB), followed by the two-day Khadi Exhibition on 10-11 November at Gulshan Gardenia Convention Centre.

Team of designers at Khadi expo will be showcasing the various ways of intertwining their rich history with modern developments. The designers will empower the people behind the handiwork and make them wear khadi clothes again.

Maheen Khan, president of the Fashion Design Council, said that the council teams up to breathe new life into fashion, mothered by the technique of khadi, a fabric that is an essential part of the Bangladeshi textile heritage.

She believes that conscious measures to preserve their culture through khadi will enrich the lives of the core Bangladeshis, thrusting the nation towards progress.

On 3 November, the gala event opened with an unexpected act — a dance drama choreographed to highlight the glory of khadi. The dance act continued in between the designers' cues seamlessly.

Another distinguishable feature of the show was the experimentations with the blouses — everyone gave a new face to the traditional blouse with ruffles, fringes and long frock-sleeves with intricate designs. This will definitely set a foot print of the start of something new in their traditional wear, and expect these novel designs to go viral.

The panel of esteemed Bangladeshi participants for the two day show include Maheen Khan, Sarah Karim, Kuhu, EmdadHaque, Chandana Dewan, ShaibalSaha, BiplobSaha, LipiKhandaker, Maria Islam, Farah Anjum Bari, Shahrukh Amin, NawshinKhair, Tenzing Chakma, AfsanaFerdousi, Raka, Faiza Ahmed, Rima, Farah Diba, and Rupo Shams.

The international panel include Rasna Shrestha (Nepal), Jacqueline Fong (Malaysia), NelunHarasgama (Sri Lanka), ChimmiChoden (Bhutan), SukeejitDangchai (Thailand), Himanshu Shani (India), and Soumitra Mondal (India).

As promised, the show accentuated priority to their heritage, and the need to take environment friendly measures to preserve their beautiful culture. The FDCB truly put up a show that emphasised the need to create conscious designs inspired by their past that would be sustainable for the future.

The products of the TRESemmé Khadi ‘The Future Fabric Show 2017’ will be exhibited on November 10 and 11 at Gardenia Convention Center, Gulshan. In this way, the Khadi Exhibition will extend the festivity by and it will be open for all.
