This session of Addressing Images will be based on a photograph taken of Indonesian fashion designer Toton Januar’s Spring/Summer 2019 runway show during Jakarta Fashion Week. We will discuss how contemporary Southeast Asian womenswear designers put together traditional/modern and local/global elements not only in designing clothing but also to create compelling fashion narratives, and how this hybridity creates unique brand identities that appeal to domestic and international consumers alike.
