The event has also attracted an even greater number of foreign buyers with a number of local brands, especially those under JFW's capacity building program.
"JFW 2014 involves many more designers, models and it has more than 75 fashion shows, thousands of looks, all indicating significant increase from last year which reaffirms its status as the largest fashion event in the country and the region.
"We are also happy to see that some of the designers who have enrolled in our programs have begun to make international presence," says Svida Alisjhabana - Chairman of the organizing committee of JFW 2014.
This year JFW will feature 240 designers/labels, 77 shows, 7 international designers, 3000 looks and 350 models.
