Kebaya Fashion.

I always love looking at the muslim females wearing their costume during Hari Raya because the kebaya and batik fashion always look so exquisite and beautiful!

I often wonder where the designers get their inspiration from to designing the clothes!

If you don’t know about this, which I am not 100% sure about it myself.

Kebaya is originate from Indonesia.

The earliest form of Kebaya originates in the court of the Javanese Majapahit Kingdom as a means to blend the existing female Kemban, torso wrap of the aristocratic women to be more modest and acceptable to the newly adopted Islam religion. Aceh, Riau and Johor Kingdoms and Northern Sumatra adopted the Javanese style kebaya as a means of social expression of status with the more alus or refined Javanese overlords.

Even though the kebaya is the national costume of Indonesia, it is also accurately endemic to the Javanese, Sundanese and Balinese people.

You can read more about it from Wiki, it’s always nice to read about the history of these things, learn something new =D
