THEME OF YOUR WORK : Tale of Two – Pre-Spring 2023

DESCRIPTION OF YOUR WORK : Tale of Two: Pre-Spring 2023 by Frederika is a juxtaposition between inspirational Bishu Reclaimed Wool material from Japan with Hand-drawn Batik (batik tulis) from Indonesia. In the creation of the apron batik motif, Frederika refers back to Sam Pek Eng Tay’s folklore from China back in the Tang Dynasty, which has been a major reference for Batik motifs during Japanese occupation years in Indonesia back in 1942-1945. The Sakura Flowers, Moon and Peacock was sewn on top of the Cloud Parang batik motif, to recreate the tale in a modern way.

DESCRIPTION OF YOUR WORK :Inspire by the fabric, as wool to a trench coat to a more avant garde design.
