Dressovation: Fashionnovation’s second program
After the successful arrangement of Fashioknowledge Fiesta 1.0, many positive things have happened. Students from batch: 43 and 44 all joined with Kazi Purba and Fashionnovation started to become a common place of interest for all. Fashionnovation started encouraging the students for reading books, arranging a lot of competitions, grooming students for their careers and many more.
Fashionnovation started to become a hub of the likeminded students. We also felt that there should be a fashion illustration competition because the students of TFD are creative in nature and appreciation begets inspiration. So in 2019, Fashionnovation launched a program called Dressovation and it came out as a grand success. Anything like that happened for the first time in BUTEX’s history. Responding the call of Kazi Purba, the students of TFD-44 started forming teams of 3 and started to make their fashion illustration projects. It was very new for them because they were still in the first year of their university life but it didn’t become an obstacle because Fashionnovation team from TFD-43 briefed them and trained them and ultimately everyone came up with their projects. It was a complete unworldly feeling when everything came together. The teachers praised the works and the judgement happened by the vote of TFD-43 in front of our two honorable teachers- Md. Mahamudul Hasan and Naila Sharmin Kanta. The final judgement came from our Departmental Head sir and the prizes were given to the winners in our TFD Sari-Punjabi day. Ultimately it was a daunting task, it was an unprecedented and successful program of Fashionnovation.
Back in 2018, there wasn’t any platform for the students of the Department of Textile Fashion and Design (DoTFD) of Bangladesh University of Textiles (BUTEX) to express their artistic minds and to showcase their creative works. Being the most creative bunch of students by nature, there was no place for them to show their talent. There wasn’t any activity driven space for them and so it felt like the death of some creative souls in a puddle while they should be diving in an ocean. This situation always bothered a then second year student studying in the same department. This predicament made him to dream big. He started to talk about his dreams with his classmates and his mentors Dr. Abbas Uddin Shiyak, the Assistant Professor of Dyes and Chemical Engineering and Md. Mahamudul Hasan, the Head of the Department of Textile Fashion and Design. With everybody’s inspiration the boy decided to set sail. He took the decision to make something big with all what he had-his friends, his juniors, his mentors and his ambition to conquer.
That student is none other than our Kazi Farhan Hossain Purba, the founder of Fashionnovation. With courage and belief, Kazi Farhan Hossain Purba started from the scratch. He asked his classmates to be the host and the students of Batch: 44 who were then studying in the first year to be their guests for a knowledge based quiz competition. Everyone unanimously joined the event. All the teachers happily gave their consent and Ummey Hani Barsha, the Faculty of the department joined the event as the judge. Thus the first ever fashion based quiz competition of Bangladesh University of Textiles (BUTEX) if not of the entire country came into being. A new era of creativity and extracurricular activities started with a shine on the 7th of July 2018.

With the passage of time this organization has arranged many seminars, webinars and competitions to help and encourage the fashion students.
Now Fashionnovation is in its way to unite all the fashion institutes of Bangladesh and other countries to give the momentum to encourage and to be encouraged.
The fast fashion’s devastating role on the humans and the environment always bothered us. That’s why our goal is to preach sustainability in the fashion sector of Bangladesh and other countries by creating an ideal model. For that we arrange knowledge based quiz competitions, create contents and update people with the latest news of fashion.
We are also on our way to create sustainable products using natural dyes and natural resources. The satisfaction of our journey lies in spreading light through fashion and innovation. That’s how we are up and running and going towards to reach our goals.
