About This Book

Drawing inspiration from Indonesia’s rich heritage, fashion designer Biyan Wanaatmadja’s first book is a master class in ethereal elegance. Indonesia’s most celebrated fashion designer, Biyan Wanaatmadja, learned his craft in Germany at M. Müller & Sohn and in England at the London College of Fashion before returning to Indonesia to launch his acclaimed label BIYAN. Combining classic and sophisticated tailoring with a profound appreciation for the handcrafting traditions of his home country such as batik, weaving, and embroidery, Biyan creates a feminine, fairy-tale–like look that is at once romantic, captivating, and modern. Refined and enchanting, this book serves as a gorgeous introduction to the singular oeuvre of the lauded designer and will be a must-have for fashion lovers.
