Local textiles were at centre stage at the Impossible Collection of Fashion 2022 as prominent local designers came together to showcase their collections for a good cause: to support ageing silk weavers.
Bangladesh is an integral name in the global fashion industry. The country has received this fame due to its booming RMG industry and exports. Buyers of Bangladeshi garments and textile products include H&M, Walmart, Target, Zara, M&S, and many more retail giants. However, our homegrown fashion brands have yet to find their footing in the global landscape. Over the last few years, numerous local brands and stakeholders have tried innovative ways to break the glass ceiling.
The Fashion Design Council of Bangladesh (FDCB) aims to promote and develop the country’s homegrown production of textiles and other products that are part of our heritage and ensure their global recognition. FDCB aims to encourage and create a market for Bangladeshi products internationally and to set up a research centre that will archive traditional fashions, textiles and techniques.
FCDB and the American Embassy Employees Association partnered to host a charity show featuring collections of several prominent designers to raise funds to support ageing silk weavers. The event, named The Impossible Collection of Fashion 2022 was held on Friday, the 4th of November at the American Club. The event was sponsored by Beximco, Revive, BMW, Red by Afroza Parveen, and Shera Digital.
