This year, Dewi Fashion Knights concluded Jakarta Fashion Week 2018 with collections from TOTON, Rani Hatta, PEGGY HARTANTO, Major Minor Maha and Hian Tjen.
As with the tradition of Jakarta Fashion Week (JFW) every year, the week-long event is always closed with the climatic Dewi Fashion Knights (DFK), where five celebrated designers are selected to showcase a compact collection based on a theme. This year, DFK tasked TOTON, Rani Hatta, PEGGY HARTANTO, Major Minor Maha and Hian Tjen under the idea of “Modernism”. But don’t confuse it with the style of arts in during the early 20th century, in which it departs from traditional and classical forms. It has more to do with the quality of thought that makes one a modern character.
