Designer Dwi Iskandar Presents Toraja-Inspired Collection at The Apurva Kempinski Bali

Exotic Toraja was a stage performance of fashion, music, and dance that lit up the hotel’s Pendopo Lobby.

A true house of culture and a tremendous supporter of Indonesian traditional heritage, The Apurva Kempinski Bali once again hosted a spectacular performance inspired by a particular region of Indonesia. Collaborating with Designer Dwi Iskandar, the resort’s majestic Pendopo Lobby became the backdrop for the spectacular collaboration, which highlighted not only 35 types of Toraja-inspired attire, but also music and dance performances from the region.

Namely Exotic Toraja, the collection utilises authentic fabrics from Toraja. Each of them was specially handpicked by Dwi Iskandar with the help of the Toraja community, and they were transformed into a line of resort wear that is suitable for a tropical lifestyle. Emphasising the importance of inclusivity and the involvement of communities, several disabled and pregnant models were featured, while students from the Indonesian Institute of the Arts Denpasar and the Bali Design and Business Institute were invited to take part in the creative process.
