Medan Fashion Trend 2014 is the biggest fashion show in town, held on Sunday, December 8, 2013 by FAMe (Fashion Art Medan) INDONESIA in collaboration with Dolling School of Fashion Design, and supported by APPMI Sumut (Medan Designer Club) in Grand Elite Hotel Medan. The governments of North Sumatera are also supporting this event; it has been delivered officially in a speech by the governor and the head of culture and tourism department.
This event itself was featuring a lot of guest designers and the talents from Dolling School’s students. There’s around 160 design works from 20 designers in Medan, and had been attended by 500 invitations. Many fashion peoples such as designers, fashion bloggers, fashion stylish, fashion editors, and fashion enthusiasts around Medan come and join in.
The theme of this event is not only about modern fashion, but also combination of free style and local cultural, including creativity of Ulos, a traditional fabric from North Sumatera. Nice to know that Ulos could be recreated becomes a casual look that fit for formal, semiformal, and even non-formal occasions. This traditional woven expected to be a masterpiece that could be recognized internationally. Another categories of design also shown, like ethnic chic, wedding gown, Muslim hijab, cheongsam, monochrome looks, lace dress, floral printed, and many more.
Overall, this event is such as a platform to show off the creativity of the designers. I personally feel that this event is much recommended to become an annual event to increase knowledge of fashion for young people.
