Jakarta, IO – People still enthusiastically come to the Sudirman station area to see stylish young people strutting at Citayam Fashion Week. Even though it has been banned many times, including dispersal by the security personnel, the place is still thronged by people of all ages, especially young adults.

When Observerid.com visited the area on Saturday (30/7), the place looked busy. Many wear quirky clothes accentuated by unusual accessories.

Apart from being a gathering place, the place has turned into a prestigious fashion contest favored by the teenagers.

Despite being labeled as a marginalized society by most netizens, these young “fashion models” managed to attract attention because they have turned into a kind of symbol of rebellion to expensive clothes and luxurious lifestyle of the upper class.
