The latest collection from ACAKACAK.
When it comes to the creativity of young people – especially a designer – LPTB graduate Susan Budihardjo is quite good at presenting creative ideas. The exploration that was presented last night was enough runnin wild. Some look good, some look too run to their own rhythm. Before heading to the main event, which was held at Ciputra Artpreneur on January 19 2017, Susan Budihardjo graduated 36 students from the 2016 class, where the 13 best graduates had the opportunity to present around five of the best works presented. Of course, we are not familiar with the names introduced, and the only way to remember them is through the work that speaks, tonight!
Calling the collection CAMBIO, these graduates look fun and quite imaginative. Although it looks too ‘effort’. This happens in some less evocative looks. Like a veil with an accent rippedthe stitching on the skirt looks sloppy, the silhouette is lacking fitted, being some of the ‘usual’ problems for new designers. Even processed net material with asymmetrical cuts, plus details eyeletbecame so predictable, and just became an unusual creation that wasn’t special. Wellthere is always a first time right?
The rest, these fresh graduates seem to be trying keep up with current affairs. Tops with written details, long sleeves accents, to a unique combination of a mega cloudy motif with flashy colors that are quite risky, are refreshments that can be appreciated. One action was also performed by a designer where he displayed a plain black outfit that could instantly turn into ‘burning’ – through the fire motif that was created by the designer.print digitally.
“As a final project for the study period, each student is given broad freedom to prepare a collection of designs developed from thinking about ‘change’ (cambio) that. Prospective young designers are required to explore, hone their taste, and continue to explore various materials and clothing elements to get a philosophy of change,” explained Susan Budihardjo, as the head of this fashion school.
Entering the presentation, ACAKACAK, which is now bigger with 25 alumni in it, presents 36 sets of ready-to-wear clothes which are divided into three rounds. All seemed to dissolve in explosive youth. In CAMBIO Worker, young styles appear in themed clothing street brave one. The bright yellow is matched with blue and a brush of pink and white acrylic paint. While the CAMBIO Safari session, looks cute in the nuances of the feathers that enliven the mix and match of culottes, palazzo, and a variety of firm cut tops. With an interesting idea of mixing striated into colors army the contrast. Finally, in CAMBIO Office, the collection looks more real to be worn. Office fashion suits look cool with outer like vest kimono to jacket bomber which is still one nuance with a brush of acrylic paint.
Like a house with many residents, uniting one voice is not easy. Tonight all the designers who are still ‘virgins’ with the industry fashion which is actually just screaming about ideas and concepts. But the upside is that the CAMBIO collection doesn’t come across as flat. In the future, all who are still incorporated in this ‘container’ must be more literate about many things. Such as the business side, selling power, and branding, whose homework is much more dizzying than just making a wild concept. “Learn from experience,” said Rinaldy A. Yunardi, a well-known accessory designer who that night sat in the front row. “Bring fashion Indonesia in a better and right direction.”
There were two outfits that caught Rinaldy’s attention that night. a dress futuristic with wave detail and a top with a large shield on the front. Perfectly fits Rinaldy’s quirky character, always statementand young at heart.
