Bima is is a city on the eastern coast of the island of Sumbawa in central Indonesia‘s province West Nusa Tenggara. They produced on of the most gorgeous, bold and colourful traditional woven textile. On the last Jakarta Fashion Week 2013, Stephanus Hamy launched a collection of beautiful blazers, coats and dresses made of Bima city woven traditional textile. As one of Indonesian most prominent Fashion Designers, Stephanus Hamy has started his career as the Favorite Winner and Runner Up at LPM in 1983. Since then, he has worked with various Indonesian traditional textiles and pleats and became the first Indonesian designer whose collection is shown at Fashion TV Paris. His brand HAMY CULTURE consists of ready to wear and evening wear collection that use traditional Indonesian textile. Due to his endless creativity in mixing the materials and techniques, HAMY CULTURE collection is easy to mix-and-match. I was lucky that Stepahus Hamy sketched and designed a coat for me to wear to my Barcelona trip last February. (taken from: http://www.indonesiafashionweek.com/exhibitor/profile/stephanus-hamy) I was attending the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona last February, the weather was chilly so the coat was perfect. It is cool, bold, modern and a combination of bright magenta silk with the colorful Bima woven textile from West Nusa Tenggara. I also did a video interview wearing this coat at the Mobile World Congress which was attended by the Mayor of Barcelona together with MLOVE.
