Fashion Design Council of India (FDCI), has partnered with Indonesia's Jakarta Fashion Week (JFW) to enable a cross-cultural exchange of designer talent between the two nations. As part of the first year of the exchange, Indonesian designer Novita Yunus with her brand ‘Batik Chic’ will present her collection on day 1 of the Amazon India Fashion Week (AIFW).

As the platform that drives the Indian fashion industry, FDCI continues to present various programs to encourage exchange of ideas that boost creativity, through collaborations with international partners. Through the universal language of fashion, AIFW 2017 will give stage to traditional techniques and symbolisms curated by the Indonesian designer.

Later in the year, as a part of the exchange with JFW, an Indian designer will highlight the brilliance of Indian creativity on the Indonesian platform. Last year, two Indian labels had showcased sustainable fashion in Indonesia, said FDCI in a press release.

"FDCI has always been on the fore-front of scouting myriad minds and providing them with lucrative opportunities. This interesting exchange between our country and Indonesia will make it a spectacular rendition of cross-cultural understanding. We hope to create more avenues of engagement for designers, to explore the creative potential of both the countries. We would like to thank the Ambassador of India to Indonesia, Nengcha Lhouvum Mukhopadhaya in Jakarta, who has facilitated this partnership," said Sunil Sethi, president, FDCI.

"The rapid business growth of Indonesian designers has encouraged our international partners, such as FDCI and Embassy of India in Jakarta, to initiate a collaboration, especially with Indonesian fashion forward designers. Furthermore, JFW and Embassy of India in Jakarta and FDCI share similar mission, to develop the fashion industry in respected countries, and to bring forth designers from both countries to international stages. The ultimate mission is to bring forth Indonesian designers to international stages," said Lenni Tedja, director of JFW.

AIFW Autumn Winter 2017 will be held in New Delhi from March 15-18, 2017. (KD)
