The 7th Bali Fashion Week returns to Bali November 22-25, 2007 and, as with past Bali Fashion Weeks, world leaders in fashion and style will converge on Bali to be dazzled by the talent of Indonesia's top fashion designers and apparel producers.
Centered in Kuta, the event offers a full schedule of trade exhibitions, fashion shows and educational seminars.
Bali Fashion Week's Founder – Mardiana Ika
The Bali Fashion Week reflects the hard driving personality and undying commitment to fashion of its founder – Mardiana Ika. A recognized leader in both World and Indonesian fashion circles, Ika has taken her simple idea of creating a larger market place for Indonesian fashion and turned it into an important event on Asia's fashion calendar. Those who travel to Bali witness first-hand the "cutting edge" talent to be found in Indonesia's fashion industry while at the same time being introduced to the rich traditional textile tradition of Indonesia: batik, songket, ikat and sarongs.
Due in no small part to Ika's efforts, Bali-produced garments are increasingly found in Europe, U.S. and major Asian markets generating US$89.2 million in export earnings during the first eight months of 2007, a total that's 10% more than in the same period in 2006.
