Indonesian Diversity NYFW
Indonesian Diversity NYFW SS19 starred three designers; Vivi Zubedi, Kimberly Tandra, and Coreta Louise. The purpose of the multi-collection is to drive awareness to Indonesian culture and their home. The opening featured dancers
Vivi Zubedi’s NYFW SS19 Collection was inspired by the city of Marrakech. Vivi incorporated her inspiration for the city with Indonesian designs and sillouhettes. Her goal is to be a worldwide affordable luxury brand, yet hold true to her commitments with her customers needs. The designs were vibrant with floral touches and spirng colors; a great refreshing touch to her already breathtaking NYFW FW18 Winter Collection. My favorites being the bright yellow and classy silhouettes.
Suedeson’s NYFW SS19 Collection “Nucleus” collection comes from the designers own personal experiences in diverging into the world of Couture. The pieces take inspiration from different races and cultures. There is a juxtaposition at play where two seemingly diverse details are used in the same look. Delicate looks next to bold looks; leather with hand-sewn details. Headpieces, batik, oversized bell sleeves were also used. While the leather can be seen as bold, materials such as silk, cotton, and organza balanced the look out and brought it down to earth; grounded.
Coreta Louise’s NYFW SS19 Collection, “Tropical Haven”, informed the world that tasteful batik designs can be worn in an elegant and modern manner. The hand painted silk can be worn in both in the urban area or in the everyday life; bringing a little tasteful elegance to any place or situation. Handwoven silk, organza, and tafetta lined the runway this season in the vibrant colors of gold, maroon, terracotta, and midnight blues.
