kebayana


can you tell us about history of modern kebaya?
kebaya history is a long one. it went through several transformations before it became what it is today. to give a (very) brief history of the modern baju kebaya labuh

in the 1950s, the baju kebaya labuh was adapted and given a new look. to give it further shape, the sides of the tunic were cut to follow the contours of the body thereby replacing the side panels. the new design of the tunic did away with gussets (kekek). to give shape to the figure, darts both in front and back of the tunic were introduced. the hemline of the kebaya was shortened to either fall on the knee or just below the knee. initially, kebaya labuh modern was worn with a batik sarong or for special occasions with songket.
