What is the international fashion? The answer is "well-known fashion recognized internationally", such as dispatched from Paris, NY, Milano, London - the most important fashion stages. Fashion should be international world-wide ? Actually, the answer is no! If the creations would be unique and special from others, it possesses the value of fashion. If the fashion has their originality with a strong background of culture or personality, it's worth to pay attention.
From that point of view, have a look at the Bali fashion week - even if it is, more or less, still local fashion, but it could be found something new, something different. Sometimes, this makes people exciting, and at Bali fashion week you may experience such a feeling!

For the majority, Bali is well known for its beautiful beaches, incredible vistas, glorious sun sets, ideal location for high level conventions and summits - but now also for its creative fashion event due to the continuous success of Bali Fashion Week. Bali is not only a travel spot by now, it also should be a fashion stage.
