iD Award Winner – Best Fashion Designer: Era Soekamto (Iwan Tirta Private Collection)

In celebration of our 14th anniversary, we are extending our appreciation to those who have made significant contributions to the improvement of design in Indonesia by presenting Indonesia Design Best Design Awards. This is Era Soekamto of Iwan Tirta Private Collection, winner of Best Fashion Designer award.

As the creative director of the Iwan Tirta Private Collection, Era Soekamto is constantly pushing to continue the legacy of the batik maestro and present it to the modern world. Playing this role since 2012, Era has successfully expanded the brand into new areas of couture through extensive research and by revisiting the mind of the maestro himself.

This year, she wowed us with a collection called Condrosengkolo, a traditional Javanese time configuration based on the lunar cycle, symbols of numbers that represent the year. These symbols are used to create a harmony between humans and the universe. She translated this sophisticated sacred art into batik motifs that are divided into space, fire and water, earth and air. Through Condrosengkolo, she uses rare and skillful craftsmanship to combine ancient heritage, philosophy, and fashion design into a great collection.
