At London Fashion Week, Klamby, a modest wear brand from Indonesia, debut their Spring/Summer 2023 collection inspired by Creative Director, Nadine Gaus’s Indonesian heritage. With intricate embellishments and delicate details, the collection featured wearable dresses, caftans and separates. For this collection the brand aimed at creating pieces that are fashion-forward, modern, and fresh in a celebration of fashion for all.
The Spring/Summer collection drew inspiration from a handwoven textile originating from Java called Tenun Garut as well as Indonesia’s national flowers, jasmine, moth orchid, and rafflesia arnoldii. These symbols represent the nation’s image: The Flower of Nation (Puspa Bangsa), The Flower of Charm (Puspa Pesona), The Rare Flower (Puspa Langka).
Various fabrics, developed through textile processes, housed specific details in their texture of natural fibers made by weaving with a traditional non-machine tool (ATBM). These techniques were used in multiple pieces that graced the catwalk. Craftsmanship was valued and weaved through every stitch of this range. The color palette transformed from classic neutral to timeless bold and playful color.
Upon hearing of the passing of Her Majesty The Queen Elizabeth II, Nadine and her design team worked tirelessly to create a black dress in a 50’s inspired silhouette paying homage to the iconic leader. The dress came down the runway worn by influencer and brand muse Patricia Gouw and was clearly inspired by her early days of reign.
Klamby’s hopes to inspire the world through Indonesian heritage and offer collections that can be enjoyed by women globally.
