This week I was invited to the unveiling of the Indonesian Fashion Gallery at 76 Wooster Street in Soho. In this gorgeous new store, my friend Eski brings together Indonesian designers all in one convenient NYC place and the results are drool-worthy! The blend of traditional and contemporary is on point. Batik fabrics mix with abstract colour blocking to create a unique blend of east meets west.
We decided to have an impromptu photo shoot and the results are below. If you like any of the pieces and you'd like more information, you can follow them on Instagram @indonesianfashiongallery_nyc
This piece is by designer Mel Ahyar who draws inspiration from the elements. This dress was inspired by the rain (I'm glad it inspires something!)
Here is a beautiful, oversized dress of hers.
A more traditional look by couture designer Iwan Tirta is simply queenly. Slay baybehs, slay!
Finally, a coat by Mel Ahyar again. It's an attention grabber!
Thanks to all and to you, dear readers.
