TEMPO.CO, Jakarta – DKI Jakarta Governor Anees Baswedan has clearly stated that he will not restrict the creative work of teenagers in Dukuh Atas, which organizes Sitayam Fashion Week.
Sitayam Fashion Week is a creation that was created in Dukhuh Atas, starting with the teenagers gathered there. It is known that many of them came from Sitayam, Bojonggede and Depot. Because they gather on Jalan Sudirman, they are called SCBD, Sudirman’s S.
According to Anees, as long as there are no written rules or regulations, Sitayam Fashion Week can be held.
“As long as there is no letter, there is no prohibition,” Ennis quoted Antara, Friday, July 22, 2022, at Jakarta City Hall.
Aeneas reminded that government policies are not based on comments in the media or are issued, but are determined through official decisions.
Countries cannot be regulated through doorstops
“So you can’t, the country doesn’t control it through the ‘door’, the country doesn’t control it through the comments. The country is controlled through the rules. As long as there are no rules, no restrictions. Not there.” Anees said.
The former education and culture minister did not respond to reporters’ questions that Sitayam Fashion Week put the participating youth in danger as it was held at a road crossing.

For information, let us tell you that the Sitayam Fashion Week Action was organized at Zebra Crossing Road, right at Jalan Tanjung Karang or on the way to BNI City Station and Kendal Tunnel in Dukuh Atas.
Anees’ statement indirectly touched on the attitude of her subordinate, the deputy mayor of Central Jakarta, Irwandi, who said that Sitayam Fashion Week violated the rules because it was done at a road crossing.

Irvandi even asked the youth not to organize Sitayam Fashion Week anymore.
“According to the function of pavement for roads, don’t program ‘catwalk’ on ‘zebra cross’, please help other road users. It is not only those who use it, there are other road users who are troubled by Irvandi quoted Antara as saying, Thursday, July 21, 2022.
He asked the teenagers gathered in the area to understand the rules of health protocols, such as no crowding, let alone sleeping in the pedestrianized area until morning.
The Chief of Central Jakarta Police, Koombes Komaruddin, said the Sitayam Fashion Week activity in Dukuh Atas did not have a permit. “There is no permit at the place where children are doing activities,” Komaruddin said, quoting Antara, Thursday, July 21, 2022.

Even though it does not ban it outright, DKI deputy governor Ahmed Riza Pateria is required to adhere to restrictions on hours of activity to maintain public order.
“We want that starting today, it will end before 22.00 pm,” Deputy Governor of DKI Jakarta Ahmed Riza Pateria said at Jakarta City Hall, Thursday, July 21, 2022.
Apart from maintaining order, restrictions are in place to estimate the departure time of the last Electric Train (KRL) at 24.00 WIB.
“Poor parents at home worried about not waiting for their kids to come home, let alone late at night, we ask our kids, whom I love and are proud of, 22.00 WIB before, for not going home till midnight, even if it is a Sunday night,” he said.
President Jokowi asks not to ban Sitayam Fashion Week
The trend of Sitayam Fashion Week cannot be separated from the comments of President Joko Widodo. He also witnessed controversy and debate about holding a fashion show on a zebra cross.
Jokowi did not question the creativity of the youth at Sitayam Fashion Week. For Jokowi, as long as you don’t break the rules, Sitayam Fashion Week is a space for expression.

“As long as it doesn’t violate the rules. It’s creative, works like this, why should this kind of creativity be banned? As long as it doesn’t violate the rules, it doesn’t violate the rules, Jokowi said at the Bogor Presidential Palace, West Java, Saturday, July 23, 2022.
Jokowi asked that the incident did not need to be brought to life. According to him, as long as the SCBD youth activities are positive, he will fully support Sitayam Fashion Week.
“As long as it’s positive, I don’t think there’s a problem. Don’t make it big, positive things are supported and encouraged,” Jokowi said.
