JAKARTA – Indonesia’s modest fashionistas have walked many runways in the last couple of years, at the Indonesia Fashion Week, Muslim Fashion Festival, Jakarta Modest Fashion Week, and they will meet again at October’s Indonesia Modest Fashion Week 2018.
Companies paid anything from 40 million Indonesian rupiah ($2,695) to 200 million rupiah ($13,476) to be part of the Jakarta Modest Fashion Week at the end of July, according to main organiser Franka Soeria of Think Fashion.
