The Market Entry programme is one of the programme series from the Indonesia Fashion Forward (IFF) Programme. This is a business skill development programme with Jakarta Fashion Week (JFW), Centre for Fashion Enterprise (CFE), and the Ministry of Tourism & Creative Economy.
Kick-started in 2012, the three year Indonesia Fashion Forward programme involves an intensive pioneering programme to nurture and develop a selected group of Indonesian young and upcoming fashion designers every year, with the goal to prepare them to compete in the international fashion stage and showcase their work in the prestigious fashion weeks with the likes of London Fashion Week.
This year, there will be 10 – 12 local emerging fashion designers selected as the Third Batch of IFF designers. On 3 – 8 February 2014, Toby Meadows and Sanjeev Davidson, the CFE experts, will be visiting Indonesia to deliver trainings and workshops.
