A Batik Statement a day...
On Sunday 21th of april during the Indonesian Cultural Festival in Best (NL) I'm invited to make Batik Statements. During the day visitors of the festival can pose in a BatikFashionPhotoShoot to create their own Batik Statement. I did a BatikFashionPhotoShoot at Taman Indonesia during the WinterFashionFair and I had a lot of fun, so I'm looking forward to Sunday.
I'm also showing Batik Statements during a fashionshow: The first Batik Statement Fashionshow! Very exciting, and I got some great Batik things to show. Next to my own little collection of Batiks, a very special collection is lent to me!
And Batik Chic also lent me some beautiful items from their Batik Tulis collection. So lucky me, I have a house full of Batiks!
Not only is Sunday special for me because I can be busy with Batiks all day, I also celebrate that I started my Batik Statement project one year ago! I received lovely statements this past year and I hope will receive many more. If you are friends with me on Facebook you might have noticed I'm sharing a Batik Statement everyday untill Sunday. I never thought that when I posted 'Sometimes I wish I was a fashion blogger' on the 14th of april, this project would grow and grow.
A celebration is not complete without some new Batik Statements, and in this case, Wax Print Statements. First one I'm wearing Vlisco's 'Happy Family' and the Batik Chic heritage slippers. On the second one I'm wearing the infinity wax print by Julius Holland Wax in the snow. Spring is finally here, so it's time to wear those Batiks! (and send me the pictures :)
