The batik collection from Banyuwangi, East Java, - creations by designer Priscilla Saputro, - stole the limelight on the runway of the recent Indonesia Fashion Week last Saturday at the Jakarta Convention Center (JCC). Named "Novum Ethno", the collection boldly carried the Androginic concept, a blend of masculine and feminine elements that clearly expresses gender equality.
Novum, meaning "new" in Latin, expresses the up to date and modern approach to fashion, while the Latin word "Ethno" reflects the strength of traditional ethnic fabrics in Indonesia.
In her latest collection, Priscilla selected 20 batik motifs from the district of Banyuwangi, in the east-most corner of the province of East Java, and created these into 58 dresses. The batiks chosen include the region's typical traditional motifs such as elephants, watercress plants, coffee beans and other agricultural produce and animals typical to Banyuwangi Batik.
