Along with this, #JMFWPoints will help designers and brands to experience the market, and showcase their products not only on the runway, but also on display all across country.

"The collaboration with Metro is a proof that #JMFW is not only an event but beyond that. We always have been trying to connect designers to buyers in the name of creating effective and beneficial cooperations; and this is only one of significant steps to reach that goal. It will also become an information hub of the event itself. And we are lucky to have Markamarie to handle the management from A to Z," told Franka Soeria.

We are aware of the challenge of cross-country selling and we bring the most realistic solutions for designers and brands to penetrate the market in the most optimal way possible." told Ismail Semin the founder of Markamarie Creative- the local partner of #JMFW that has great experience in assisting brands to discover and thrive in Southeast Asia.

Beside #JMFWPoints, the event will be full of interesting and exciting content; one of which is the Dream & Design for Disabilities Project. This project aims to connect disabled people's vision with fashion industry. Designers from Turkey (Zümrüt Kaya), and Germany (Meriem Lebdiri) and Indonesia (Markamarie & ACT) connect with local disabled communities in special workshops to create fashion items that will be sold in and in the event. The profit will be used as donation to buy wheelchairs for those in need and also lovely pieces will be shown on runway on a very special show.

If 15% of the World's population live with some form of disability, we really need to create an awareness in fashion industry.''
