The curtain will go up in the main fashion week in Indonesia and the largest in Southeast Asia, Jakarta Fashion Week 2016, on October 24 at Senayan City, Jakarta. The Fashion Week will be a landmark for Indonesian fashion, in which hundreds of Indonesian and foreign designers, including designers from Japan, Thailand, and South Korea, will celebrate and showcase their best work, with full international coverage.

In its eighth year, Jakarta Fashion Week is receiving full support from Senayan City, a complex dedicated to high-end shopping in Jakarta. Svida Alisjahbana, CEO of Femina Group & Chairman of Jakarta Fashion Week 2016, expressed gratitude to Senayan City for their support of JFW 2016, "Support from Senayan City is very meaningful to Jakarta Fashion Week as Senayan City is a premium shopping destination that represents high-end boutiques from Italy and France, as well as various other fashion brands from around the world.

"With the convening of JFW 2016 in Senayan City, Jakarta Fashion Week will have a value comparable to the fashion brands stationed there, and this is something that is very encouraging. It is time to introduce Indonesian fashion labels to the public so that they can understand and love the creativity apparent in our local products that is no less great than those in the products of international brands."

Veri Y. Setiady, CEO of Senayan City said, "For the third time, Senayan City warmly welcomes the presence of Jakarta Fashion Week as a barometer, and a means of welcoming new fashion trends in our homeland. Along with the celebration of Senayan City 9 Infinite Years, Senayan City will present an exclusive collaboration entitled Capsule Collection F/W 2015 which will feature designers DanjyoHiyoji, KLE, and Hunting Fields, with creations made specifically for JFW 2016. The Capsule Collection F/W 2015 and TIKprive X Stella Rissafashion show will present at the Fashion Tent in JFW 2016 on October 29."

Senayan City will also present fashion shows featuring the latest collections from tenant brands, such as Bebe, Promod, and Debenhams.

Supporting the fashion industry in Indonesia, Jakarta Fashion Week is also sponsored by the National Craft Council / Dewan Kerajinan Daerah (Dekranasda) DKI Jakarta. "The collaboration between Jakarta Fashion Week and Dekranasda DKI Jakarta is a journey we've been taking for years. Together with Jakarta Fashion Week, Dekranasda aims to hone the creativity of members who have the talent and desire to move forward and expand worldwide," said Svida. (SH)
