Deden Siswanto at Fashion 1stJAKARTA, Nov 24, 2009 / — Day 5 of Jakarta Fashion Week 09/10 saw a resurgence of innovative menswear. Nikicio Homme, Jeffry Tan and Deden Siswanto presented groundbreaking collections made up of simple, stylish separates that cater to Indonesia’s growing number of young, savvy and fashion conscious men.

As part of the Fashion 1st Show on November 18, Deden Siswanto took Indonesian menswear to a whole new level with his selection of sheer fabrics. Wearability aside, these bold progressive collections successfully captured the Indonesian zeitgeist.

As one of the fastest growing economies of the G20, Indonesia’s creative scene has boomed over the last couple of years as more and more Indonesians are becoming more educated and receptive of new, emerging trends that betray old conventions.
