Indonesian designer launches sustainable line at AIFW
Mar '17
Indonesian designer Novita Yunus has launched her sustainable collection at the ongoing Amazon India Fashion Week (AIFW) 2017 in New Delhi. Her Bhumi Langit (earth and sky) Autumn/Winter 2017 collection is inspired by the idea of balancing the colour palettes of autumn leaves and cold winter sky. The collection has used eco-friendly materials and techniques.

At AIFW, the designer showcased her clothing line which majorly incorporated the prints of sun and leaves. The earth and sky colours were expressed in varieties of kaftans, palazzos, traditional embroidered keabayas and other fashion items. Combining ochre, dark chocolate, light brown, olive green for earth tone with dark blue and silver for sky shade.

"We used eco-prints like leaves which we use in textile prints then natural dye was another main element for the show. We played with silk and a lot of indigo color. This is the new trend for sustainable fashion," Novita told a news agency.

Yunus had included various techniques such as eco-print process, Batik Remekan, Garut handwoven, and embroidered clothes. Eco-print is a method that prints the colour and pattern of leaves on different kind of textiles like silk, rayon, organic cotton and natural fibre. Batik Remekan is an authentic method from West Java where the wax or 'malam' is fully spread all over the textiles, then squeezed and cracked them before they are coloured. Garut handwoven is a traditional textile made from silk with geometry shapes.

The designer's fashion line has integrated earth and sky colours that were expressed in varieties of kaftans, palazzos, traditional embroidered keabayas and other fashion items. Further, the collection has also combined various colours such as ochre, dark chocolate, light brown, olive green for earth tone with dark blue and silver for sky shade. (RR)
