FOREWORD

POPPY DHARSONO

The fashion industry in Indonesia cannot be compared to Paris or New York, but the industry is certainly developing towards a better and more profitable industry.

Indonesia Fashion Week was first held in 2012 and it’s held annually. The 6th Indonesia Fashion Week will take place on February 1st to February 5th 2017 at the Jakarta Convention Center.

Local culture and tradition will be the basis and reference of the designs for Indonesia Fashion Week 2017. Through this effort, we hope that ultimately we will all be able to carve our identity in the world of fashion that reflects our own culture.

I realize that there are still many shortcomings in the implementation of the Indonesia Fashion Week so far, but we will continue to give our best to be able to present Indonesian fashion, which can be accepted, both in local and international markets.

Let’s welcome Indonesia Fashion Week 2017, Celebrations of Culture!
