A unique fashion show titled ‘Haute Couture’ held yesterday at hotel Le Meridien Dhaka to raise funds for the underprivileged children in the country and promote new designers.
Brazilian Embassy in Dhaka, Spouses of Head of Missions (SHOM) and the Fashion Design Council of Bangladesh joined hands to host the fashion show where the spouses of heads of missions were the models to touch the hearts of those children.
Cosmos Group, REVIVE, Bashundhara Group, Mutual Trust Bank Limited, Dhaka Page3, Bay Developments Ltd, Bangladesh Heritage Crafts Foundation and Le Meridien Dhaka were the sponsors of the event.
Before the formal beginning of the fashion show, participants enjoyed a live music at the event.
“Our expectation is to help the disabled, abandoned and disadvantaged children who need us and our help. We want to raise funds and touch their hearts,” said Sandra Tabajara, wife of Brazilian Ambassador in Dhaka.
Apart from raising funds for the disadvan
taged children in Bangladesh, Tabajara said that they also want to promote the new and young designers of Bangladesh.
She shared her idea with Maheen Khan, a well-known pioneer in the design industry of Bangladesh, and spouses of Ambassadors and High Commissioners who responded positively.
