This showcase features batik menswear created by students and
graduates of Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts (NAFA) in collaboration with
BINhouse. Interpreting tradition, history, culture, and contemporary
fashion aesthetics, the designs are modern, innovative, and wearable.
BINhouse, a batik powerhouse in Indonesia, generously provided all
the batik fabrics for this collection. Each one speaks to the unique and
distinctive BINhouse signature approach to handmade batik.
With their individual fortes and styles, the NAFA designers established
their own approaches to working with the BINhouse batiks. Among the
designers are an embroidery artist, a print designer, a leather smith, an
alternative constructionist, as well as current students honing their skills
in fashion designing.
Programmes: Join us on 2–4 September for Crossing Cultures at ACM,
and on 25 September for ACM Adventures: Runway Ready.
