    I am not going to argue with you about what Bangladeshi culture is. Open a separate thread elsewhere and discuss with others.

    Culture is what you innovate on, it does not stay the same. If you don't like it, then don't look. People hold sovereign rights on what clothes they want to wear, it is not anyone else's place to dictate it. Bangladesh is not Saudi Arabia.

    While at it, take a look at the Pakistani fashion thread....

    Bangladeshi girls are a beautiful exotic sub-sect of Bong girls, who are also very beautiful in a pretty steamy way.

    Cheers, Doc

    I will admit I have no idea about women's fashion, but found the following interesting about Jessia's rise to fashiondom as a model locally. Her background is rather humbling, but like others before her, she made a mark on the local fashion scene by training to be better...


    A CONVERSATION WITH RINA LATIF TO HEAR HER THOUGHTS ON THE ROLE OF GOVERNMENT AND GLOBALISATION ON BANGLADESH’S FASHION INDUSTRY.

    What inspired you to come up with your latest collection?

    A romantic, global nomad inspired my latest collection. A person moving languidly through heady bazaars, while in the evenings being at a speakeasy or jazz lounge.

    What’s your take on the market being flooded with clothing from neighboring countries? What has prompted this kind of a phenomenon?

    That’s globalization for you. We provide such easy access to our markets, but for actual Bangladeshi designers, it is most definitely not a cakewalk. Also, it is deeply embarrassing that most do not take pride in wearing and promoting local homegrown brands. If we are to develop a fashion industry, there need to be regulations and legislation put in place to protect the industry and curb counterfeiting. And take pride as Bangladeshis. Actually, it’s almost tacky to just blindly follow this trend of wearing clothes that trickle in from our neighboring countries. I don’t see any uniqueness about it; nor is it chic. From a designer’s perspective, it’s just blending in with everyone else – it’s this lack of confidence to cultivate one’s own style.

    What is the biggest reward of being a designer in Bangladesh?

    The biggest reward is certainly the chance to showcase our rich textile heritage and to work to bring back craftsmanship that was fading, almost dying. It’s a chance to show the world that Bangladesh is capable of setting and creating its own distinct style. Also, it has given me the chance to provide employment and livelihood for countless craftsmen, artisans, weavers. I too have learned so much from these souls. But, it has not been easy. I have suffered many a heartbreak. It is an almost daily struggle to fight against counterfeiters and intellectual theft.

    In your decade long journey as a designer, if you had the chance, would you like to change anything?

    I would really clamp down on counterfeiting and counterfeiters. I would like to make the process way more transparent. I would like to see a fraternity of designers.

    How can we brand local couture to the international market?

    We need strong support from the government. Legitimate brands provide a huge amount in taxes, and we deserve to be recognized as a venerable industry. Rina Latif is already carried in boutiques in India, Dubai, and London. But with the government’s help, I believe we can reach greater heights. This also goes back to your second question, that then you can actually control this onslaught of foreign clothing and instead develop our fledgling fashion industry.

    To celebrate the launch of its fourth retail outlet in Jamuna Future Park, RISE hosted the first ever street wear fashion show in Bangladesh. Through 30 ramp models and one of the most talented choreographers, RISE showcased the quality of their products. From the clothes to the ramp, they truly set a high standard for the audience.

    The show displayed four sets of recent and upcoming fashion trends from around the world. Present in the audience were some of Dhaka’s most prominent fashion bloggers, choreographers, stylists, fashion designers, magazine publishers and photographers.

    A jaw dropping performance from pioneering break dance crew, “Anonymous Crew”, made the event even more electrifying. “RISE may be the pioneer street wear fashion brand of Bangladesh, but it is also coming up with all kinds of seasonal and festival clothes for the people of Bangladesh. We are providing one of the best quality products in Bangladeshi retail market with an affordable price range”, stated Najiur Rahman, the marketing manager of RISE. The show was concluded when CEO Faheem Mosharraf cut the ribbons to officially open the new store. The first 30 customers were also treated to exclusive gift packs.

    Maheen Khan on globally reviving a heritage
    MARJIYA BAKTYER AHMED
    [​IMG]

    “Khadi is a philosophy – the root of all textiles,” stated prolific fashion designer, Maheen Khan – the constantly brain-storming mind behind the fashion house Mayasir and the celebrated Khadi Fest. Reviving the khadi brought to the forefront the uniqueness of hand woven textiles and age old traditions. Owing to the textile’s low carbon foot print, it impresses on the minds of conscious buyers; “who are looking for the story behind a product and green textiles which are ecologically sound and ethical fashion. Khadi is an ethical product.”

    From bringing awareness to our traditional heritage through khadi, Maheen Khan – always the visionary – asks, “How do you make something based with traditional ideas but styled in a fashion that is globally accepted? That is the challenge right now.” Maheen Khan suggests that investments need to be made into the creative industry and on designers which can be achieved, “if the design industry is enriched by human resources,” who are equipped with the, “finesse, flare and expertise of being a true designer.” She points out that the $30 billion RMG sector has no backward linkage to our traditional weavers and artisans, and suggest the bridging of these two industries.

    The self-proclaimed ‘Google Queen’ observes that we live in three separate centuries simultaneously – from the co-existence of thelagaris to cars, from garment workers to women pilots – and credits this to the richness of our culture and our ability to adapt. She articulates about the tech-revolution of the last 25 years and states that, “The fashion industry needs to embrace technology, access other tools and get real.” She comments, “High street fashion is important. It’s the comfort. It’s the contemporary. Recent collections at Mayasir are trendy, young, stylish and affordable. Using affordable materials and using digital gives me the opportunity to really play with my designs and printing quality, and I can do so much with it as a designer.” She further iterates, “We need to use new technology and integrate new styling.”

    The renowned fashion mogul calls for originality as well as fusion when developing a sense of fashion saying, “Individuals need to explore fashion as a part of their lifestyle. It is important to look clean, smart and confident. Present yourself in such a way that you’re with it, rather than out of it.” And keeping in line with her expert advice, she adds that her fashion house Mayasir will be striving to, “make fashion contemporary for the new generation of consumers who seek varied designs and affordable prices.” She concludes that, “Comfort, affordability, style and durability are key. For the sake of posterity and the future – our heritage textiles will be invested in – but to survive in the fashion industry you need to be innovative, you need to come up with designs that are affordable, accessible and durable.”

    YouTube Sensation Xefer Rahman Enjoys the Sounds of the Violin, is not a Morning Person and doesn’t Think she is Beautiful…

    Xefer Rahman is a treat to all your senses. You can either get lost in her melodious voice or watch her stir up a storm in a performance. Her latest release Somebody from her new album Uncaged is now on everyone’s lips. Let’s get to know her!

    [​IMG]
    Xefer is an enigma
    When did you realise you wanted to be a singer?
    When I was 16 years old. My close friends and some of my family members appreciated my singing and I thought, hey maybe I should give this a shot.

    Which classical instruments do you like the most?
    That’s a tough one because I like so many instruments! But if I had to pick, I think I have a weakness for the violin, flute and dotara.

    The first song that comes to your mind you are happy/ angry/ sad.
    I am very random when it comes to this. It’s really tricky for me to think according to my mood. Most of the time, I end up listening to sad or depressing songs when I am happy.

    In a sentence, describe your style of singing.
    I like to treat my voice the way I would treat an experimental instrument. I try my best to use it for different styles.

    What is the best thing to wake up to in the morning?
    I am NOT a morning person so I have no clue. But maybe a cup of coffee would be nice?

    The nicest compliment you received was?
    When people tell me that I have inspired them, it motivates me to work harder

    What should every woman try atleast once in her lifetime?
    I still have so much to experience hence I don’t want to dole out such advice. Nonetheless, I think every woman should understand the importance of being independent in every sense of the word.

    [​IMG]
    Black is the eternal chic
    Your most favourite line in your latest single Somebody and why?
    “Memories restless childhood feelings, now you deny my existence, is this how you feel?”

    This line, in fact, this entire song is very close to my heart as it describes a lot of my own feelings.

    An item in your closet you wear the most?
    Anything BLACK!

    On a long drive you would be listening to?
    If I were to go right now, I would listen to Sevdaliza, Stromae or Lana Del Rey.

    What was the first song you picked up on an instrument?
    I can’t play any instrument, yet! But someday soon

    [​IMG]
    Xefer sharing the stage with Jon Kabir and Zohad Reza Chowdhury
    3 words that define your personality
    Fearless, passionate, headstrong

    If there was something you could change about your singing what would that be?
    I don’t know about changing but I love experimenting in general and I believe there is no end to learning

    How do you react to criticism?
    I like to laugh it off and sometimes share and make fun of my own memes and trolls. If you can laugh at yourself, you have nothing to worry about

    Your beauty secret is
    Haha, I wish I could name some endorsed beauty products but there is none. Jokes apart, I don’t consider myself that beautiful so I have no secrets to give out

    Surprise us with a secret of yours.
    When I tune my songs, I use a language that I have made up. It sounds like gibberish and sometimes even I don’t understand the language.

    What do you enjoy more? Writing lyrics or singing?
    Coming up with melodies is my most favourite step while making a song

    Describe the style inspiration of your single Judge?
    In one word ‘rebellious.’ The whole song is about ‘being yourself’ no matter what others think/say.

    If there was one piece of advice you would give to your teenage self, what would it be?Please pay more attention in school!

    A word of advice to aspiring singers
    Embrace your uniqueness no matter how absurd it may seem to the world. Also, be true to your passions!

    Parisian ‘Catwalk on Water’ showcases Asma Sultana’s designs

    Combined with Jessica’s bold and feminine motifs, Zoan Ash created a glamorous atmosphere

    The seventh anniversary of supermodel Jessica Minh Anh’s “Catwalk on Water” in Paris was joined by Bangladeshi haute couturier Asma Sultana on Tuesday.

    Jessica’s Autumn Fashion Show 2018 premiered seven innovative fashion collections which included Asma Sultana’s Zoan Ash creations.

    The title “Catwalk on Water” comes from the multi-talented fashion show producer Jessica Minh Anh’s usage of an illusionary platform consisting of a giant glass boat, which gives the effect of walking on water.

    Asma’s heavily embellished and hand-beaded collection illuminated the show. Her collection was inspired by royal warriors. The designer showcased a combination of deep red and black along with royal blue and beige to portray confidence and individuality in each design.

    The signature look from Zoan Ash collection, included one half of a military velvet jacket and another half of an elegant royal gown, completed with a distinctive jewel crown and sword looked stunning on Jessica Minh Anh. The outfit combined with her bold and feminine motifs created a glamorous atmosphere.

    [​IMG]


    According to the supermodel herself, she described the Zoan Ash collection to be “alluring, captivating and very intriguing”.

    Jessica mentioned the intriguing part was how Asma’s modern touch to the classic silhouettes “perfectly accentuates a woman’s body.”

    When speaking about her decision to showcase Asma’s collection, Jessica said: “Every piece is a work of art heavily influenced by modern craftsmanship. It compliments women’s beauty while showing off their individuality.”

    According to her, she cannot think of a better representative of Bangladesh and South Asia for her show.

    Other fashion designers who participated in Jessica Minh Anh’s Autumn Fashion Show 2018 were: Peruvian haute couturier Ani Alvarez Calderon, UAE fashion house Atelier-Zuhra, French luxury jewellery brand De Galluchat, Japanese legend Yumi Katsura, American newcomer Nuriyah, and Vietnamese brand COCOSIN.

    Zoan Ash, associated with popular Bangladeshi brand Ecstasy, was founded on November 1, 2015.
