The exotic charm of nature, culture and its tribe, bringing out Borneo community – threatened by extinction and annihilation as the downside / downfall of the human race development. JFC calls out to all to preserve the environment and to reclaime Borneo’s image as one of Indonesia’s strong indigenous cultures.
2.Prison.
Convicts waiting for death sentence / on death row are pictured as ‘a cry for real justice to be prevailed/to be served’ – this is a message for our justice system and mechanisms to tread them with proper manner based on human rights as civilians.
3.Predator.
Adaptating horrific / hideous creatures of the food chain – telling all not to exploit / oppress the weaker ones.
4.Undercover.
Blue-collar workers (mine workers) are presented in costumes to highlight the importance of safety issues at workplace and not to destroy the ‘core’ of the earth anymore than the mining companies have already done.
5.Amazon.
Especially the endangered species in Amazon – the effort to spread word out in term of preservation of the wild and the breeding of rare animals / species on earth.
6.Chinese Opera
Opera show of original Chinese culture is being played out. The strong story, costumes, and characters inspire JFC to bring it come to life by fashion carnival concept.
7.Anime.
The world desperately needs wise leader who speaks for the best interest of the people. This thought is realized by Japanese crime – fighting cartoons and animation movies in search of truth.
8.Recycle
The earth is rapidly damaged / ruined by toxic waste and the inconvenient global warming which are very hazardous to our life and health. The negative effects can be minimized / reduced by recycling used things / organic or non-organic garbage for efficiency causes.


We would like to express our deepest gratitude from the bottom of our hearts to all the parties who have greatly supported & collaborated with us (Bandung International Congress, Culture Parade at Istana Negara, Bali Fashion Week, and Kutai Kartanegara Parade) intimately throughout the years and making this event ‘an epic proportion’ – none of JFC’s accomplishments could have been achieved without you!
