Welcoming Jakarta Fashion Week 2010/2011, Styling Modernity
Jakarta - On the 6th – 12th November 2010, the Femina Group will again hold the most important fashion event in the region, the Jakarta Fashion Week (JFW) 10/11. It will again take place in the luxurious Pacific Place Mall in Jakarta.
Styling Modernity is the theme of JFW 10/11. By this, the organizer expects that all the collections presented in the event, whether they are Moslem wear, ethnic or contemporary fashion will be presented in a modern style, providing the ultimate direction for fashionistas as well as the general public. “This theme is chosen because we aim to make the Jakarta Fashion Week as a hub that facilitates a dialogue between various streams in fashion, including the heritage in fashion and textile traditions and also all the modern elements of the industry,” explains Baslir Djamal, Chair of the Organizing Committee of JFW 10/11.
JFW 10/11 is fully supported by Sunsilk Co-Creations, Bank BNI, Pacific Place mall, The Municipal Government of Jakarta and The Indonesian Fashion Designers Association (APPMI) and The Indonesian Fashion Designers Council (IPMI).
Highlights include the retrospective show of leading ready-to-wear designer Ghea Panggabean, who is celebrating her 30 year career in fashion. Another key program is the Oscar Lawatta’s show. Oscar is the winner of International Young Creative Entrepreneur (IYCE) 2009 which is organized by British Council. The award was granted to appreciate Oscar’s effort in modernizing and popularizing East Nusa Tenggara woven cloths. Oscar will present a special collection in collaboration with a leading British textile designer to modernize the textile of the province and turn them into a modern collection.
JFW 10/11 is also proud to present the final announcement of the Accessories Designers Awards (LPA) 2010, a bi-annual event which is also organized by Femina Group. JFW 10/11 is also excited to demonstrate Cita Tenun Indonesia fashion show and the parade of the alumni of The Young Fashion Designers Competition (LPM), including Carmanita, Chossy Latu, Itang Yunasz, Billy Tjong, Andreas Odang, Eny Ming. Albert Yanuar, Imelda Kartini, Zacky Gaficky, Hian Tjen, Kursien Karzai, Bethania Agustha, Yunita Kosasih and Danny Satriadi.
“Jakarta Fashion Week 2009 has given a positive effect to my career. I am now engaging with many requests from clients and photo shoots in various media. In my opinion, JFW is right place to show my seriousness in the fashion industry. I really do hope JFW will continuously improve to be a better fashion event in the upcoming years. Thus, this event will be able to show Indonesian designers to a greater world,” says Andreas Odang, a young designer and one of the LPM 2005 finalists who will perform his collections for the second time in JFW.
