Indonesia has potential to be a center of the Muslim fashion industry in the international market.
As one of the big countries with the largest Muslim population globally, Indonesia has potential to be the center of the halal product industry through the variety of Muslim fashion in the international market. To promote our local products to the global market, Bank Indonesia, Indonesia Fashion Chamber, and Indonesia Halal Lifestyle Center execute a Muslim fashion show as one of the Indonesia Sharia Economic Festival (ISEF).
ISEF this year became the 7th event with a theme "Mutual Empowerment in Accelerating Sharia Economic Growth through Promoting Halal Industries for Global Properity." Specifically, this year, the ISEF Modest Fashion will hold virtually with a theme "Sustainable Fashion, Sustainable Lifestye."
This theme has risen as a movement to give a strong message of ISEF 2020 Modest Fashion Organizing. This concept is not limited to fashion products but also becomes a sustainable lifestyle that refers to 3 principles, which are social, economic, and environmental.
Modest Fashion ISEF 2020 invites all participants to care by doing a sustainable healthy lifestyle while paying attention to community life, environmental harmony, and common welfare.
The concept of sustainable fashion is getting stronger by selecting main local materials and human resources to create a product that can run the local economy. It refers to global trend inspiration and taking care of life and social environment.
