A GLIMPSE FROM JAKARTA FASHION WEEK 2013: CLOSING SHOW AT IKAT INDONESIA BY DIDIET MAULANA
Jakarta’s very own fashionistas were flocked together for the closing show. The IT crowds were eager to see Ikat Indonesia’s Spring Summer 2013 collection named “Romantika Mentari”.
Andien, one of Indonesia’s famous singer, opened the show with a glamorous tenun gown. It looked complex, just like what Didiet said before in the press conference. “It was a bit difficult to create this collection, because I used the tenun materials from Makassar which known to be fragile. Usually for 10 meters of fabrics, I can make three clothes, but for this kind of material, I can only make one.”
As his mission to make Indonesia’s younger generation to be more aware of our own tradition and culture, Didiet’s designs did just that. Wearable clothes, modern styling with traditional fabrics and touches could be the perfect recipe to attract more young customers to his line.
