'In Style Hong Kong', a promotional trade show organised by the Hong Kong Trade Development Council (HKTDC) will be held in Jakarta, Indonesia from September 14-20, 2015.

“The promotion will showcase a range of Hong Kong lifestyle products as well as business services to Indonesian entrepreneurs and consumers,” a press release from HKTDC informed.

Six collections by renowned Hong Kong designers will feature in 'Batik Crossover', with works created from the traditional Indonesian fabric.

The designs by Lulu Cheung, Walter Kong with Jessica Lau, Walter Ma, Aries Sin, Harrison Wong and Cecilia Yau will be unveiled at the Fashion Hong Kong catwalk show during a gala dinner.

'Batik Crossover' is about combining a fine Indonesian craft with Hong Kong fashion design talent, symbolising collaboration between Indonesia and Hong Kong,” said HKTDC director Stephen Liang.

Bandung-born Hong Kong fashion designer Lulu Cheung's love of batik dates back to her early childhood, when she wore casual clothing made from the material.

“Today, the renowned designer's bond with the fabric is being rekindled through her “Batik Crossover” collection,” HKTDC added in the press release.

Walter Kong and Jessica Lau designed batik pieces will be based on their latest collection inspired by the Nutcracker and are surreal, colourful and comfortable and flatter the female body.

The designer duo design contemporary east-west fusion womenswear that can be easily mixed and matched for various occasions.

Designer Walter Ma who designs a wide range of fashion, including womenswear and menswear will use batik in his evening gown designs.

“The material is very comfortable, but it needs adapting to be used in evening gowns, so my collection will feature batik detail rather than being made totally with batik,” Ma said.

Fashion designer Aries Sin aims to give batik a modern twist and will use a contemporary way to present the material, and use the fabric in a more futuristic way and will be unisex.

Harrison Wong will turn the traditional fabric with traditional pattern, into a contemporary street fashion look for men.

Cecilia Yau who specialises in bridal wear and haute couture inspiration will feature batik with deep blue, purple and golden yellow colours, with the latter resembling moonlight. (AR)
