Jakarta (VNA) – Indonesia can become a centre of the world's Muslim fashion as it holds great potential to support this, ranging from human resources, markets, to quality fashion design, Minister of Tourism and Creative Economy Sandiaga Uno told the Indonesia Islamic Youth Economic Forum on June 28.

According to the minister, the creative economic sector has contributed 1.1 quadrillion rupiah (75.9 billion USD) to the country’s GDP, with 17 creative economic sub-sectors, which are dominated by fashion, culinary, and crafts.

Of the total, 175 trillion rupiah was contributed by the fashion sub-sector.

Indonesia is the third country with the most consumers of Muslim clothing after Turkey and the United Arab Emirates.

Meanwhile, Nanida Jenahara Nasution, one of the Muslim fashion designers, said that Muslim fashion products in the country have very good quality for the global market. However, these products need to be supported to be accepted and get a place in the hearts of local people.

Then, collaboration of all stakeholders is also necessary to make Muslim products get a wider market, the designer added./.
