The Garden of Paradise in Windy Chandra’s Creation
Who is Windy Chandra? This question came up when we received an invitation for his Trunk Show, “Le Jardin du Paradis” last week in Moovina, Plaza Indonesia. This rising name in fashion design has 8 years of experience in this field, after graduating from Academy of Art, San Francisco. He returned to Indonesia and started to commission bespoke work with his label “Windy Chandra”.
His name became known in the middle-upper clienteles for his perfectionism in designing party gowns with such intricate detail. Windy has been busy filling this niche market, and his designs are also often shown in well-known television shows, such as Miss Indonesia and Indonesian Idol.
Windy’s character manifested in his work, intricate details and meticulous handwork. Windy is also committed to explore uncommon materials, so that people who see his work are tempted to get a closer look on the dress. In fact, he always encourages that his works will get closely examined by customer/fashion lovers.
Le Jardin du Paradis was his second show in Jakarta, as his effort to strive in the Indonesian fashion industry, and also influencing fashion trend in Indonesia. The collection was his interpretation of the beauty of Versailles garden in France, and reflected in Victorian silhouettes. Leaves, flowers to clumps of plants transformed into feminine, full of details, and provocative creation. In realizing his fantasies, Windy is always eager to play mostly with materials which consist of various textures, in this case, feathers, ribbon, velvet, laces, etc.
