Bangladesh Fashionology Summit is set to be held on February 12 at the International Convention Center, Bashundhara (ICCB) inside capital Dhaka. The first of its kind on garment technology, the day-long Summit will bring together the next generation of global fashion experts and Bangladeshi apparel manufacturers in a discussion upon the latest trends that have arisen inside a tech-driven fashion industry.

The summit aims to familiarize Bangladeshi manufacturers with and encourage them to use the latest technology currently trending within the clothing industry. A total of 16 renowned speakers from 10 countries will be speaking in the event.

“Today, technology has become a big part of everyone’s daily life,” said the CEO and founder of Bangladesh Apparel Exchange (BAE) Mostafiz Uddin to the Dhaka Tribune. “Fashion and apparel industry are no exception to this.

The global production and supply model that has been in existence for decades in the apparel industry has been replaced by fast fashion.” The objective of the summit is to make a bridge between the present and the future of the Bangladeshi apparel industry, said Mostafiz. “We are bringing the most inspiring and innovative thinkers from across the globe under one roof,” Mostafiz continued.

“Our goal is to initiate the much needed conversations on technology, digitization and innovation inside the apparel industry.” In four seminars titled Factory of the Future, Virtual Reality and Digitization of Supply Chain, Fashion Tech and Sustainable Innovation and Mass Customization and on Demand Manufacturing, the speakers will share their experiences and knowledge to the Bangladeshi apparel manufacturers. The organizer of the event Bangladesh Apparel Exhange (BAE), a non-profitable organization to promote the RMG sector, is going to arrange the first ever Digital Tech Fashion Show during the event.
