BiYan


BiYan

Born in Surabaya (Indonesia), BiyanWanaatmadja’s formative years were spent at Muller & SohnPrivatmodeschule in Dusseldorf (Germany, 1977-1979) and The London College of Fashion (England, 1981-1983) where he was graduated as a fashion designer. And thereafter he received an apprenticeship at the Italian Fashion House Enrico Coveri in Florence (Italy).

One year later, as his family persuaded him to return to his hometown Surabaya (Indonesia), he started to produce and retail his own design in a small atelier in Surabaya, which then formalized as his first clothing line BIYAN for women in 1984 and followed by his second line STUDIO 133 BIYAN in 1985. Biyan opened his first showroom at a well-established shopping mall in Jakarta to showcase his full collection in 1992.

STYLING
Biyan’s collection is described as romantic, classic, and sophisticated. Which usually translated through the use of a broad spectrum of fine fabrication from lace, tulle, cotton, silk, and wool. The juxtaposing interplay between fabric, texture, color and form, of taut tailoring and hyper-romanticism are signature to Biyan’s designs.

What makes Biyan so successful is his refined high quality craftsmanship of beautiful embroidery and intricate beading techniques as well as his creations of silk prints as it is a commitment to his design aesthetic and vision. The way he uses rhinestones and vintage semi precious crystals created into a piece of embellishment add quirkiness to his design.

ACHIEVEMENTS
Biyan has been selected several times to represent Indonesia as a contemporary designer at the prestigious ASEAN Fashion Connection in Singapore. Following his success in South East Asia, in 1998 The Link (Singapore) and Joyce (Hong Kong) were among the first international retailers in the region who exclusively carry his collections.

His accolades also include various awards, as “Best Indonesian Designer” selected by the Indonesian Fashion Journalist. He was a creative consultant for Harpers Bazaar Indonesia and a regular member of the International Judging Committee for the Asian Young Designer Content in Singapore.

Today the BIYAN fashion house has three principal labels: BIYAN, STUDIO 133 BIYAN, and BIYAN Bride.

Start from 2012 SS, the collection is shown & sold in Paris and currently BIYAN is available at Le Bon Marche, Joyce, Club 21, Blake, Saks Fifth Avenue Bahrain to name a few.

FRS

With F.R.S, the pajama finally leaves the realm of the strictly private and its specifically nocturnal purpose, transforming itself into an attitude comprising lightweight fabrics that look good anywhere. In so doing, it reveals itself as a display of independence, reflecting a new and surprising self-declaration.

F.R.S. is the monogram of Francesca Ruffini, the heart of this project and a true monogram addict. Yet with a touch of tongue-in-cheek irony, it also means “For Restless Sleepers”.

Francesca states she is virtually obsessed by all kinds of piping, the essential hallmark of all garments that carry the F.R.S signature.

The creative itinerary on the theme of the pajama proposed by F.R.S is more about a fun new interpretation that leaves behind the old clichés, instead of referring to the hackneyed garment we know so well. In doing so, it makes an independent and precise declaration of taste.

It is a dress and a non-dress, conceptual and light-hearted, a well-thought-out blend of chic and freedom, the uniform for a whimsical rule or a dynamic choice.

Through the pajama, F.R.S offers a diametrically different and cosy means of presenting ourselves. It provides an unexpected interpretation of the things that
