THE PAST MODERN Voyage to Flores – Jakarta Fashion Week 2016
Aspires to get the internationalization and increase both local and international competitiveness, BINUS NORTHUMBRIA SCHOOL OF DESIGN (BNSD) aims to support Indonesian value trough their Fashion Students in the real industry. With the optimism that the graduates could promote local culture with their ready to wear collections, BNSD takes part in Jakarta Fashion Week 2016. We hope that we could accomplish our vision.
THE PAST MODERN, Voyage to Flores, is the theme for the collections this year. The twist of heritage and tradition merged with culture elements from East Timor into a new form of design without losing its feature. To fulfill that purpose, BNSD held 4 days research trip for several students where they developed the understanding about legacy & culture in Flores as well as to have opportunity to have direct interaction with local tenun craftsmen. These selected students will prepare the fabrics and garment collection and gain more knowledge by visiting some traditional woven villages Flores, while others took East Timor landscape and its beautiful creature as the inspiration for design. This will be a pilot project, to enhance classroom material and push it further as a real project to participate and show 10 students collection from BNSD and Northumbria University for Jakarta Fashion Week 2016.
The 10 students are:
AGATHA APRILIA DEWANTI
JUL HENDRI STEVEN
