Despite having firmly established itself as a major international fashion event, organizers of the Bali Fashion Week VII have decided to postpone the event originally set for June 2006 to June 3-6, 2007.
The event, founded and championed by Bali's Fashion icon Mardiana Ika, managed to draw hundred of top fashion buyers to Bali to view the latest creations by Indonesian designers and national fashion houses. However, according to the organizers, "a thorough evaluation of all economic aspects in Indonesia including the lack of financial support from the government to name a few, ModaBali Foundation decided to postpone The Bali Fashion Week VII that was scheduled to be held on 4-7 June 2006 to June 2007."
The organizers added: "We hope that within the following year, the economic conditions in Indonesia will develop where all business players have more confidence in conducting the promotions locally as well as internationally. We still highly believe in the strength possessed by the industry in Indonesia to create competitive & unique products for both domestic and international consumption. However, the great assistance and support from the Indonesian government will be much needed in order to gain maximum results from the Bali Fashion Week event that functions as one of the vehicles for promoting (Indonesia’s) fashion & textile industry to the world market."
