British Bangladeshis launched a Fashion Week in London
Online Desk: The event was the culmination of a 4-year dream for the organiser – Fokrul Haque. Overcoming many obstacles and with much persistence, he gathered 8 leading designers with Bangladeshi influences, models, make-up artists and hair stylists and presented a stunning show worthy of the 1000+people who attended
Fashion was an industry yet to be infused with our culture and thinking. Indeed, over the past 30 years, British born Bangladeshi women were reliant on Indian and Pakistani designers to get their dose of feeling ‘deshi’ or celebrate weddings, parties and family functions.
That changed in the last few days with the successful completion of the ‘Bangladeshi Fashion Week in London’– an exhibition showing off UK’s most successful British Bangladeshi fashion designers, models, make-up artists and stylists.
