Patricia Wijaya

Verve Fashion

          The immediate impact of Patricia Wijaya’s collection is the geometry of form. V’s and inverted V’s, jackets with cuts and closures creating the geometry in the neckline, and at the waist, dresses with layers contrasted by color, as much as fabrication. Wijaya’s final pieces of emphasis were wide pyramids of fabric with a five foot diameter at the floor. The gold and deep blue color theme repeated throughout a small showing but curved cuts in unexpected places were echoed by other designers in this season.

   Patricia Wijaya is from Indonesia and her perspective of couture and elegance are prominently exhibited in the details and edging of many of her pieces.
