Bangladeshi designers to hit the New York Fashion week runway

A stylish international women’s label Nadz & Sabs with strong Bangladeshi roots will walk the ramp for the Fashion Palette New York Fashion Week show on September 10.

The evening wear label was founded in 2013 by two Bangladeshi friends living in Australia: designer Nadia Khan and business director Sabrina Rashid.

Standing out for their embellished outfits featuring detailed thread work, beading and hand painting, the label is known for unique pieces for special occasions.

Designer Nadia Khan said she was fascinated by silk and this luxurious and beautiful fabric was good for all seasons.

“Silk is the ‘new’ ancient fabric and features strongly in our 2015 collection. It’s organic, extremely versatile and easy to maintain,” Nadia said.

“Keeping you cool in summer and warm in winter, we have chosen the finest raw silk, silk organza and silk georgette for our spring/summer 2015 collection.”

Nadia Khan said she loved Bangladeshi crafts such as beading, embroidery and hand-painting and the label’s new range would combine these timeless luxuries in contemporary styles.

“The collection is embellished with exquisite beading and intricate thread embroidery, adapting age-old artistry for contemporary western sensibilities.

Business director Sabrina Rashid said the runway show was an amazing opportunity to connect with people from the international fashion world.

“We are thrilled to present our work on the international stage alongside renowned designers,” Sabrina said.

“New York Fashion Week was an event I always wanted to attend to see what’s on trend, but to present our label there is just so exciting.”

She also added that Bangladesh had a rich textile history which inspired them.

“We both take enormous pride in our country’s textile history,” she said.

The label is currently stocked across stores in Queensland and New South Wales in Australia.

Nadia Khan was an established fashion designer in India and exported her clothes across Europe and the Middle East.

Sabrina Rashid worked in marketing and communications in Sydney and Brisbane. She has a strong interest in fashion and oversees the business side.
