Jember Fashion Carnaval 2018

Jember Fashion Carnaval or JFC (Indonesian Karnaval Busana Jember) is an annual carnival held in the East Java city of Jember. Officially it is written as Jember Fashion Carnaval; the word carnival here is officially spelled as carnaval, probably a confusion with Indonesian spelling karnaval, or an influence of the Dutch spelling carnaval.

The idea for Jember Fashion Carnaval was realized by local fashion designer and educator Dynand Fariz. Initially, a world-themed fashion week known as Pekan Mode Dynand Fariz was held in 2001.

In the next year, the fashion week was held around the city of Jember, which is inspired the creation of Jember Fashion Carnaval.

For the first time the carnival was held in the January of 2003 as the founding day of Jember City. On the next two years, another carnival was held, and then from that moment Jember Fashion Carnival always held in the month of August every year.


A Joyful Carnival for Culture and Creativity

Most of the people already know about the Rio de Janeiro Carnival that is one of the biggest carnival in the entire earth planet. The concept of this Jember Fashion Carnaval almost the same with the Rio de Janeiro but more focusing on combining between fashion and diversity of Indonesia culture.

Like the carnival in the Rio de Janeiro, all of the people will walk down to the street with the beautiful of costume.

As a tourist you can see the various color of Indonesia culture and art in fashion. This is more like mix of fantasy of an art that use Indonesia culture as the base of the fantasy and produce something spectacular to enjoy.

Asian Culture in Jember Fashion Carnaval 2018

For this year, Jember Fashion Carnaval theme will be slightly different. If in the previous carnivals always take an inspired theme from Indonesia culture, then Jember Fashion Carnaval 2018 will lift the culture of various Asian countries.


As one of the important event of Asian Games will be held on 18th August 2018 in Jakarta and Palembang, Jember Fashion Carnaval as one of the spectacular event try to come up with the idea to theme this year event with Asian Diversities. So that, Asian Games and Jember Fashion Carnaval can be two events that show how rich the culture and art in Asian Countries.

“So next year we take up the themes of the countries in Asia that we will later connect with the Asian Games,” said Dynand.
