The sixth edition of Denimsandjeans Bangladesh is going to be held on October 5-6 in Dhaka with the theme – VINTAGE RECALL, Denim Goes Back To Its Roots. This semiannual denim show provides a platform where the global denim community comes together with an objective to share, interact and to establish future transactions with this very important supplier nation, Bangladesh.
There is a strong trend of digging into the past and looking for denim characteristics which the jeans had in the early 1900s – the color, the slubs, the weave, the looks. The current production of denim involves high technology in spinning, weaving and finishing and the industry works on possibilities of giving the vintage character on the outside while using the high technology inside the fabric. VINTAGE RECALL celebrates this aspect of the denim trend direction.
Not limiting itself to an exhibition format; the event has many activities running on the sidelines. The show this time will have couple of seminars by international denim experts and veterans where they will share their ideas on the different prospects of denim.
By 2020, it is expected that global market size of denim industries will be over USD 78 billion out of which more than 70% could come from Asia. Bangladesh has a huge potential in the textile, especially in denim and is already the top supplier of denim products to EU with exports over $1.1 billion.
“Our objective has been always to show the world the immense opportunity in Bangladesh through our denim shows,” said Mr Sandeep Agarwal, Founder of Denimsandjeans.com Bangladesh.
Denimsandjeans.com also holds shows in Vietnam and the 2nd edition of this show will be held on March 8-9, 2017 at HCMC with the first edition held in June this year. The site also brings buyers and suppliers together at one place through the first Global Online Denim Show launched recently.
