The four-day Dhaka Fashion Expo 2022 will start on June 26 at Gulshan Shooting Club.
SAMs Event, the expo organiser has already started stall booking. Local and international fashion houses are booking their stalls.
During the expo, a fashion show will be held featuring plus size girls with the slogan “stop bulling the bulky girls”.
“We have invited international fashion houses from Turkey, Germany, and Pakistan to join the expo but facing some procedural complications as the international brands have to pay dual tax,” said Event Manager Saiful Akash.
The expo organisers are negotiating with the government to sort out this problem of dual taxing. “If the government doesn’t allow them, international brands will not attain in the expo,” Akash said.
Mostly native products — like Jamdani, tant saree, jute products, and local leather products — will be on display at the expo. The international brands will bring their own native products.
A jamdani manufacturer has woven a saree worth Tk 3.5 lakh as a gift to Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina.
Managing Director of Envoy Group Salam Murshedi will inaugurate the expo. The fair will end on June 29.
