After Indonesia Fashion Week 2018 and Muslim Fashion Festival 2018 in March-April, now it’s time for Jakarta Fashion Fashion Week 2019! Jakarta Fashion Week 2019 (JFW2019) is held at Senayan City on 20-26 October 2018. Yesss, you still can go there until Friday!

I attended JFW2019 on day 1, last Saturday. I arrived there in the afternoon and watched the fashion show: Australian Fashion Showcase featuring Batik Chic by Novita Yunus & The Darwin Aboriginal Art Fair Foundation. The display was mesmerizing, the ethnic collections with modern touch. Loved the cutting and detail, it was festive yet still looked simple and elegant. I could say those collections in three words; unique, aesthetic, and wearable.

It shows that Indonesian people nowadays are aware of fashion even more. A lot of people are eager to see the collections of talented designers and satisfy their interests in fashion by watching the talkshows or shopping at the fashion booths there. JFW is one of the biggest fashion events in Indonesia. Through these fashion events, the works of Indonesian fashion designers and the development of Indonesian fashion industry are introduced to the world. So, keep up the good works!

Indonesia Fashion Week 2018

Hellooo, Muggles!
Long time no see. What have you been up to, guys? I really miss blogwalking since I’ve rarely been on my blog these days. Actually, too many to write but I’m still waiting for my mood to write them, haha. Jadi kali ini saya mau berbagi cerita tentang event yang saya kunjungi pada hari Minggu, 1 April kemarin aja ya. It was Indonesia Fashion Week 2018.

Indonesia Fashion Week 2018 (IDFW2018) yang diselenggarkan pada tanggal 28 Maret – 1 April di Jakarta Convention Centre (JCC) ini mengangkat tema “Cultural Identity”. Saya datang pada hari terakhir IDFW2018, dan saya menyaksikan dua fashion show yaitu “Exotic Cultural” dan “Unicultura”. Ini pertama kalinya saya mengunjungi IDFW, tahun-tahun kemarin entah kenapa saya belum merasa tertarik. Saya sempat urung pergi, since I woke up late and realized that the fashion show would be started at 10am. But I had got two invitation tickets in hand, so I decided to go. And when I arrived there, the fashion show hadn’t started yet, apparently it was postponed for about 1 hour.

Sesuai tema yang diusung ” Cultural Identity”, koleksi yang ditampilkan bernuansa etnik, namun tetap dengan sentuhan modern. Menurut saya, tema Cultural Identity yang diangkat sangat baik untuk memperkenalkan kreasi lokal serta memacu semangat dan kreativitas para designer dan industri fashion Indonesia dalam menghasilkan karya yang dinamis namun tetap berpegang pada budaya. Seperti yang kita tahu, industri fashion Indonesia sangat berkembang termasuk juga di dalamnya modest fashion. Modest fashion memegang peranan penting dalam perkembangan fashion Indonesia. Para modest fashion-designer Indonesia seperti Dian Pelangi dan Ria Miranda kini juga sudah mulai merambah dunia fashion internasional. Dan perhelatan tahunan IDFW menjadi ajang bagi para designers Indonesia untuk menunjukkan kreasi mereka. Well, menurut saya secara keseluruhan koleksi yang ditampilkan dalam fashion show yang saya tonton kemarin terlihat elegant, sophisticated, stylish, and wearable. IDFW sepertinya sangat diminati para pecinta fashion di Indonesia, terbukti dengan fashion show yang dipenuhi audience hingga ke tribun atas Plenary Hall.

Btw, sorry for not showing you some decent photos, I only recorded some videos using my smartphone when I was there, and the pictures I post here are the screenshots of those videos.

Selain fashion show, IDFW juga mengadakan acara lain seperti talkshow, beauty conference, dan model competition. Di sana juga terdapat banyak booth yang menjual koleksi dari berbagai brand lokal ternama Indonesia ataupun brand-brand baru. Banyak juga booth yang menjual koleksi etnik seperti batik dan kain jumputan, craft, hingga aksesoris. Karena tujuan utama saya mengunjungi IDFW2018 adalah untuk menyaksikan fashion show, saya tidak terlalu banyak mengitari booth yang ada di sana. Saya mengambil beberapa foto di sana sambil berjalan. Saya hanya berkeliling sebentar, belanja sedikit, dan seperti kebanyakan pengunjung lainnya, berfoto di beberapa spot, hahaha..

Segitu aja cerita saya tentang kunjungan ke IDFW2018. My hope is Indonesia Fashion Week as the annual fashion event can consistently support Indonesian designers and fashion industry to show off their ideas and creativity, and be the medium for fashion enthusiasts to satisfy their interest and learn more about fashion.
