Labels which were chosen to open JFW included Major Minor, Jeffrey Tan, Tex Saverio and several Moslem wear labels such as Nur Zahra and Jenahara. Of this group, Tex Saverio recently participated at the Paris Fashion Week as part of the official calendar.

Day two's highlight was the event conducted by the Indonesian edition of Grazia Indonesia which featured fashion lines run by celebrities which included the one run by the rock star Ariel, who was recently released out of prison following a public controversy in which he appeared in a series of illicit videos on the internet.
