Recently, COTTON USA held a seminar, and an eye-catching fashion show in Dhaka, to celebrate the fourth Cotton Day- Bangladesh. Cotton Council International (CCI) introduced this observance of Cotton Day back in 2016. The idea was to celebrate US Cotton, as well as Bangladesh, which is the largest manufacturer and exporter of cotton apparel products.
120 spinning mills, garment manufacturers, cotton merchants and traders attended the seminar, followed by a gala evening of reception, fashion show, and dinner. Also present at the event were US Ambassador to Bangladesh Earl R. Miller, and the Prime Minister’s Adviser for private industry and investment, Salman F Rahman.
In the fashion show, leading brands of the country like Yellow and Amanat Shah, as well as Cotton USA Licensee and Cotton Leads partner mills — Envoy Textiles Ltd, Hamid Fabrics Ltd, and Square Group, showcased a selection of Bangladeshi and western clothing.
Envoy textiles also had a chance to showcase their innovation, a 2.5-ounce Supima denim fabric in a kurta. This is the first time in the world that such a lightweight denim fabric has been developed with Supima and US Cotton.
