Fashion Utopias: the International Fashion Showcase 2016 is a series of specially commissioned and curated fashion installations featuring work by emerging designers from 24 countries. Created by the British Council and British Fashion Council , it is a key part of the London Fashion Week public programme which forms a city-wide celebration of fashion that is open to all.
Between 19 – 23 February 2016 the West Wing at Somerset House will be transformed into an imaginary terrain where an emerging generation of international designers and curators invite visitors to share their versions of the Utopia. The exhibition is part of Somerset House’s Utopia 2016: A Year of Imagination and Possibility.
Indonesia in the International Fashion Showcase 2016
Four Indonesian designers: Dian Pelangi in collaboration with Odette Steele and Nelly Stewart, ETU by Restu Anggraini, Jenahara and Zaskia Sungkar come together in this exhibition, representing the four elements of fire, water, air, light and the ever-elusive quintessence. ‘Modest Cosmopolist’ navigates the challenging frontier between a nostalgia for humans’ earthly ties and desire for a creative, cosmopolitan future. The exhibition forwards the view that in order to grow, we must return to our collective and cultural roots. The result is a nourishing and sustainable harmony of modesty and the avant-garde.
