The fashion show presented 48 clothing, comprising of ready to wear clothes, cocktail attires and couture. 
Julie, in a press conference prior to the fashion show, explained that East Indonesia is identical with bright colors, except for Flores, which is closely related with dark colors.
The materials used in their clothes have varied, including the combination of linen, rose silk, organza and satin, up to silk. These clothes became more luxurious with the additional accents of embroidery, sequins and Swarovski.
"We hope the quality and affordable local products may capture the hearts of fashion enthusiasts," Julie conveyed.
