The 3rd Annual Bali Fashion Week (BFW 2002) will be held at the Discovery Kartika Plaza Hotel in Kuta May 13-15, 2002.
As with previous Fashion Weeks, BFW 2002 will include a series of exciting fashion events showcasing top Indonesian fashion designers and producers of clothing, accessories and fabrics who will use the natural allure of Bali as an international tourist destination to draw potential buyers from around the world. A rapidly developing center for trade in garments, textiles and accessories - Bali is striving to join the ranks of international fashion capitals.
Pioneered by Indonesian fashion icon, Mardiana Ika, the Bali Fashion Week first two forays have successfully drawn the attention of not only international buyers but the international press, including coverage on CNN.
A graduate of the London College of Fashion in 1977, Ika has worked at the German fashion house of L'Estelle before starting her own company, Butoni Ltd, in Hong Kong. Active at a series of international fashion events in major venues held in Paris, Milan, Düsseldorf, Singapore and Hong Kong - Ika took this experience and established the Moda Bali Foundation in 1985.
Last year's event at the Grand Bali Beach Hotel drew a number of well known Indonesian designers including Adrianto Halim, Poppy Dharsono, Musa, Dina Midiani, Stephanus Hamy, Widy Budiardjo, Corrie Kastubi, and Denny Khosuma while featuring top model talent drawn from Jakarta, Surabaya, and Bali.
