JF3 Fashion Festival, one of the biggest fashion festivals in Indonesia, is back this year on 1 - 11 September 2022 at Summarecon Mall Kelapa Gading, Jakarta. JF3 carries the hashtag #CulturalDiversity, as a form of support for cultural diversity in Indonesia.

This year JF3 raised two important subjects, namely sustainability, as an invitation to start a fashion movement that is socially and environmentally responsible to support a better life.

In addition, another important subject is culture, this is applied by presenting fashion-based designers, brands and SMEs who have a vision to promote culture in their work, both on the JF3 runway and in fashion village exhibitions. These two themes are also in line with Summarecon's vision to build a harmonious and sustainable life.

JF3 also provides acceleration to young creatives through the PINTU Incubator program, a collaboration between JF3 and LAKON Indonesia, and the French Embassy through IFI.
