He was joined by Indonesian designers Jenahara Black Label with its contemporary luxury collection, and Monday to Sunday, which has created designs with a unique twist of detailing and playful cutting resulting in atypical pieces.

The Australia Awards is a prestigious scholarship funded by the Australian Government offering the next generation of Indonesian leaders an opportunity to undertake study, research and professional development.

Australian Chargé d'Affaires to Indonesia Dr Bradley Armstrong said the collections being presented reflect the sophistication and creativity of Australian and Indonesian fashion designers.

“These designers are at the cutting edge of global fashion trends and it’s exciting to see their new collections at Jakarta Fashion Week,” Dr Armstrong said. This is the fourth year Australian designers have featured at Jakarta Fashion Week, which not only reflects the diversity of the two countries’ relationship but also the importance of the fashion industry to both economies.

Every year, the fashion industry adds $12 billion to the Australian economy and $15 billion to the Indonesian economy. The fashion industry also employs over 220,000 Australians and 4 million Indonesians.
