Dirndl New Creation Combines Indonesian and German Cultural Elements

Who says Indonesian textiles can only prosper in the country? Through the Shanty Couture collection, designer Shanty Sutadji inserts Indonesian textiles in a typical South German outfit, called Dirndl.

“I use almost all Indonesian textiles, depending on the prevailing trends. For example the trend in 2013 was using weaving, so I used weaving for the clothes I made. In 2018 the trend is stripes motif. So I use striated batik material.” – Shanti Sutadji.
