objective of DFW:To build a common platform where we’d be able to showcase the works of all the talented and creative fashionprofessionals working in the industry. Not just the designers but also works done by fashionphotographers, fashion journalists, models, choreographers, make up artists, musicians, light and sound directors, stage directors and so on. I felt by bringing in all these professionals in a common platform , we could startbuilding an image of Bangladesh full of creativity and imaginative people and projects. Our aim is to generateenough interest in Bangladesh fashion industry in both home and abroad so that in 5 years down the line Dhakacould become an international fashion capital like Delhi or London.
