BA(Hons) Fashion Design and Textiles
2019 — 2022

Vivian Darlene is graduating with a BA(Hons) Fashion Design and Textiles from LASALLE College of the Arts, specialising in creative pattern cutting and tailoring. As a creative, she is interested in contemporising culture and developing craftsmanship to create a connection between the garment and the wearer. She offers a hint of playfulness in the engagement with one’s identity.



The collection is inspired by Javanese culture and tradition, revitalising it to be able to fit into the contemporary world. As we move into the digital era, traditions and cultures get lost in the course of change. Some have faded, while others are forgotten entirely. In the past, people infused cultures and crafts in their everyday practice. While Javanese culture appears simple, it binds the Javanese together as a society, conveying deep messages that remain relevant today. This project aims to explore Javanese roots and celebrate culture and traditions in order to bring enjoyment to the wearer.
