NUSA DUA, Bali (BPN) – The 5th Bali Fashion Trend (BFT) is ready to kick off for three days on 7-9 November 2019 at Inaya Putri Bali, Nusa Dua, Bali. Themed Spring Summer, BFT 2019 aims to lift Bali to become the centre of fashion and trends in Indonesia and the world. According to Weda Gita from the Indonesia Fashion Chamber, it is very possible considering Bali is the gate of Indonesia.
“In terms of tourism, Bali is the gate to Indonesia. Likewise, we hope for fashion, that Bali can become the center of national and international fashion,” said Weda Gita at a press conference at Inaya Putri Bali, Nusa Dua, on Thursday.
For that reason, he continued, BFT is projected to be the biggest fashion event in Bali by inviting international designers.
“Bali Fashion Trend is the biggest fashion event in Bali. This is because we not only invite local and national designers but also international designers like those from Australia and Hong Kong,” he said.
In fact, according to Gita, Indonesia can be a trendsetter because the country has cultures and diversity that can be applied to fashion design, moreover Indonesian designers also have creativity which is as good as designers in other countries.
Regarding the Spring Summer theme, Gita continued, BFT will show the fashion trend for 2020, which predicted will pay more attention to environmental issues. The designers are invited to be able to create sustainable fashion trends and designs from recycled materials.
Targeting 4 thousand visitors, BFT will not only be filled with fashion shows, but other interesting programs such as the designer gathering that will present a discussion on how to start applying the environmentally friendly concept and on the last day will be closed with an after-party.
