Australia-Indonesia Fashion Exchange

The Centre facilitated a partnership between Jakarta Fashion Week and Virgin Australia Melbourne Fashion Festival, supported by Creative Victoria and Indonesia Creative Economy Agency (BEKRAF), to deliver runway exchanges over 3 years featuring 6 emerging fashion labels in both nations: Patrick Owen, PAGEANT, ETU, HAN, I.K.Y.K., and Peggy Hartanto.

The Succeeding Together report identified textile as an area where Australia and Indonesia has the potential to capture opportunities in the region together. Fashion partnership opens opportunities of further creative collaborations between designers, manufacturers and businesses from Australia and Indonesia.
