‘Everyone thinks Bangladesh is a poor country. For me – it’s rich in culture, fashion and everything. It gives me a lot of energy’……BIBI RUSSEL
Fashion is the need of the society; fashion is the mode of action, method of conduct, manner, custom, sort and way. Fashion is not only the method or the way how one is dressed up but it is also the style, what makes difference is the type of fabric, usage of threads, the combination of colors. It is important to prepare dresses as per the celebrations, customs – traditions; prevailing weather and the atmosphere. Today we need creativity; art and fashion. Fashion is a way of expressing oneself through carefully selected threads that cover our skin projecting out our inner thoughts and expressing our feelings. Hence designing a facility to promote fashion industry requires thoughtful integration of art and technology which makes the project unique from the other commercial complex.
In Bangladesh the textile manufacturing industry is a large scale industry, which is hungry of proper services- Designing, Sample-making ,Sample testing and Workshop. Proposed as an integrated development catering to the textile/fashion industry’s requirements of Bangladesh as a ‘one-stop-solution’ which also work as a “HUB”, the project Fashion Technology Park would be developed on a commercially self-sustaining format.In addition to that , there is a growing need for the development of Fashion Business and in Education in Bangladesh & particularly in this region. Based on this, it was felt that both the groups should be able to meet & fulfill their mutual needs at one place. Fashion Technology Park came in to existence as an answer to those needs.
The Fashion Technology Park in BANGLADESH will act as HUB will become a point of contact for manufacturers, retailers, designers and students
The global scenario of Fashion Business in a liberalized market is another propeller as the competition in quality and pricing is tough to go through. The proposed facility will help to improvise the fashion as fashion institute and industry of quality design intervention and competitive price. With this the manufacturers especially the textile manufacturers will be able to go for mass manufacturing.
