An Acehnese model dressed in an explosion of colours brings traffic to a stop at a fashion show along the streets during Aceh Fashion Week in Banda Aceh, while another model presents a creation by a local designer. Most of the designs combined the traditional and the modern. The theme of the event, which is in its second year, is Wonderful Indonesia. It was held from Sept 30 to Oct 2 and included fashion shows, bazaars and a carnival parade. It aims to promote Aceh fashion and its culture both nationally and abroad.
