Runway Report: Dewi Fashion Knights

Our last video report from this year’s Jakarta Fashion Week comes from the final show on the final night of the week-long event: the Dewi Fashion Knights show is highly-regarded as the week’s “big sister” event, showcasing style trends for the year to come from the country’s future heavyweights in fashion.

This year’s list of designers includes a name we’ve seen walk the same show before, Priyo Oktaviano, but also includes new additions from the likes of Auguste Soesastro, NurZahra, Sapto Djojokartiko, and Vinora. I’m so glad that the latter three have finally been recognized for their work over the years, and hope that by taking part in this incubator program, they will garner even more acclaim (Keep in mind, however, that Priyo Oktaviano has stepped down from the program for still (officially) unknown reasons, but many think it may have to do with allegations of plagiarism).

It’s really, really hard to pick a favorite from this show, but I think my vote would have to go to Sapto Djojokartiko. Watch the video and let me know whose collection strikes your fancy!
