The Global Exchange: Fashions of Indonesia
By Stephen Chinnery
In May 2016, QUT played host to 25 of Indonesia’s best emerging and established fashion designers, giving industry and academics an opportunity to meet, mingle and share ideas in a collision of culture and colour.
Some of Indonesia’s best and brightest fashion designers traveled to QUT as part of the #fashiondiplomacy program. Split over two weeks between Brisbane and Sydney, the program is the first fashion and textiles short course in the Australia Awards, a collection of fellowships and scholarships by the Australian Government designed to give future leaders from across the globe personal development, study and research opportunities.
The No Walls team spent time with the designers at QUT, speaking with Gloria Agatha of Jii, Lenny Augustin and Novita Yunus of Batik Chic.
