Lisa Ju’s collection embraces and highlights female curves. Enter a world of fantasy featuring 12 couture art of this upcoming collection that will be shown and titled: “Renceum Réjouissances. “Renceum means sparkling in Sundanese, and Réjouissances means festivities in French. She is combining her background who live in Bandung and her immense passion for French couture designs. This time she infused her ‘back to the root’ Indonesian culture into her artistry when appealing to an international audience. “I’m blessed to be influenced by a lot of different points of view growing up in Indonesia, which has so many different cultures, so many diverse textiles, crafts, arts, and yet a combination of original indigenous tradition and multiple modern foreign influences — that shaped me as a designer,” Lisa said.
Reinventing Indonesia’s traditional fabric: “Batik Priangan” and inspired by its patterns – the design is enriched with complexities of handmade eye-catching fabric manipulations techniques, applications of beads and crystal detailing, structural line design and also incorporates hand-painted fabric and heritage accessories from Indonesia artists to make it more avant-garde and also to support local artists.
Each gown not only underscores her unique ability to tap into Indonesia’s rich cultural heritage but also an array of influences – the interplay of female empowerment, strength, and vulnerability are all reflected in exquisitely rendered couture in astro dust, galactic cobalt, sage leaf, and apricot crush color and mood of each piece created to achieve a modern aesthetic and reflect the subtle sense of the theme without sacrificing the elegance and uniqueness as her signature style.
Taussy Daniel’s stunning collection of formal evening wear was a mix of wearable art, all statement pieces, and all dresses from shades of seafoam and chartreuse to more traditional colors.
