Not proud of becoming a citizen of the number 4 most populated country in the world, but if it means top fashion retailers are aiming to open here in Jakarta, then I’m good.

One of those fashion retailers is Uniqlo, brought to us by Fast Retailing Co, a global retailer company from Japan.

Personally, I like their Designers Invitation Project when Uniqlo collaborated with top designers around the world. I had Paul & Joe, Vena Cava, Orla Kiely and their latest Lulu Guinness. I found Uniqlo as one of my favorite casual fashion brand, as they’re very affordable and super comfortable. And I practically collected their HeatTech collection, which are perfect for layering, especially if I have to travel to countries with winter season.

A day before Valentine’s day, last week, Uniqlo celebrated Fashion’s Night Out, when they announced their plan to open their first store by mid of 2013. Reportedly will be one of the biggest store in South East Asia, their first store will be located at Lotte Avenue Shopping Store, Kuningan, Jakarta, Indonesia. With a store that huge, they promised to bring in their complete collection, for men, women, kids and baby.

At the event, they also announced their brand ambassadors, Indonesia’s very own young musicians, Vierratale, the beautiful actress, Shireen Sungkar and footballer, Bambang Pamungkas. Celebrated in Prive, FX, Jakarta, there were fashion shows from Uniqlo SS 2013 Collection and the most fun part for fellow medias: Free Clothes. Yes, Uniqlo was giving away free Uniqlo clothes for all guests that night. Excited? You bet. Mr. Yasuhiro Hayashi, Chief Operating Officer of PT Fast Retailing Indonesia said there’ll be more Uniqlo’s fashion events before the opening of their first store. Wow, more fashion parties. I’ll keep you updated.
