Indonesia to hold fashion show in China

The Indonesian Embassy here will hold a fashion show in Beijing and Shanghai next April to promote the Indonesian traditional wardrobe, including batik, to the Chinese people.

"We will invite several provinces to organize the fashion show next April," Head of the Socio-culture Section of the Embassy Rosmalawati Chalid said on Saturday.

She said such traditional attire as batik should not only be seen as a commercial product but as an original Indonesian art work.

The embassy, she said, would also hold an Indonesian Week in Wangfujing, the most popular shopping center in Beijing, as an effort to attract more Chinese tourists to come to Indonesia.

The Indonesian Week is slated to be held next September, after the organization of the 2008 Olympic Games, she added.

"We actually want to hold it a week in August, in conjunction with the organization of the Olympic Games, but the local government does not allow any event to be held during the sports festivity and we then rescheduled it," she added.
