2nd Fashionology Summit: Bangladesh at Heart of Apparel’s Digital Future

The 2nd Bangladesh Fashionology Summit held in Dhaka, the capital of the world’s second largest apparel exporting country, with the aim of preparing Bangladesh for the future of fashion.

The summit brought together under one roof most inspiring and innovative thinkers from across the globe to initiate the much-needed conversations around technology, digitalization and innovation. It provided a unique platform for thinkers, innovators, experts, and educators to share innovative ideas on this edition’s main theme, ‘Digitalisation – the Next Destination’.

 “The industry is changing at an unprecedented rate. Bangladesh, the world’s second largest exporter of apparel, risks losing ground if it is not at the forefront of that change,” said Mostafiz Uddin, Founder and CEO of Bangladesh Apparel Exchange (BAE) who is also the Founder of Bangladesh Fashionology Summit.

“The Fashionology Summit was about showing stakeholders in Bangladesh what is possible. The focus for the apparel sector in Bangladesh for the past 30 years has been about growth and volume. Moving forwards, we need a shift the emphasis towards value-added products. Potentially, this could mean improved margins for manufacturers as well as leading to more high quality jobs in the industry,” Mr. Mostafiz said.
