BANGLADESH FASHIONOLOGY SUMMIT

WHAT THEY SAID

THANK YOU FOR HAVING JOINED US ON FEBRUARY 2018. WE WILL BE BACK IN 2019!

Conversation Themes

The Bangladesh Fashionology Summit intends to spark and initiate conversations around the top transformational trends that are shaping the future of things to come in the apparel and textile industry. The ‘forever connected’ consumer with shifting loyalties to brands, seeking alignment of their purchase with their deeper values- are that much more difficult to please and that much more unpredictable.

‘Omni Channel’, ‘Instant Fashion’, ‘See now, Buy-now’, ‘Rapid Virtual Prototyping’, ‘Smart fitting rooms enabled with RFID and Augmented Reality’, ‘Virtual Reality Fashion Shows’, ‘Gender Neutral Fashion lines’, ‘Ethical and Sustainable Innovation’, ‘Smart Wearables- like the Google and Levi’s Project Jacquard Denim Biker Jacket’, ‘Mass customization and personalization models like Shoes of Prey’ are some of the top themes that our industry is witnessing as a response mechanism on the Retail End of the value chain. To keep pace with all this change, ever quicker product lifecycles, shorter order lead-times, growing product variants, what is needed at the Supply and Manufacturing end of the apparel value chain?
