International design school LaSalle College Jakarta, a member of the LCI Education network with its main base in Canada, held its “Jalinan” Creative Show 2017 on 7 April at Senayan City, South Jakarta, commemorating the school’s 20th anniversary. “Jalinan” was mainly inspired by the region of North Sumatra, which is famous for its ulos fabric and the uniqueness of its production process, including sewing, tying and weaving.

“Jalinan” also showcased the best works of the school’s different programmes, namely Fashion Design, Fashion Business, Interior Design, Digital Media Design, Photography and Artistic Make Up, that – weaved together – made the success of the show.

The event ended with a spectacular fashion show from the Fashion Design programme, presenting 221 garments in five sequences; Valley of the Dolls, Pilgrimage, Tranquility, Artisanal and Synthesis, followed by a special performance by Yura Yunita.

The graduation ceremony of this year’s graduates of LaSalle College Jakarta was also included in the main event: in total, 252 new and upcoming designers ready to showcase their works and to compete on local and international stages graduated this year.
