THE BRIEF 

Vone clothing was participating in creating a dress for Miss Indonesia in presenting Indonesia for global audience at Miss Universe platform. She chose Borobudur as the main theme, that represents the strong culture and heritage of Indonesia and one of the world famous seven wonders. 

THE DESIGN CONCEPT 

The cape illustration idea is portraying the three level symbolic of Buddhist cosmology from Kamadathu, Rupadathu, and Arupadathu. 

 

The illustrated story is started from the bottom to up when Raffles sailed & discovered Borobudur.

The relief Kamadathu (world desire) picturing the common world. The middle part are the view of Borobudur from close up to faraway.. The upper part is Rupadathu (the realm of form) picturing the devas (in the shoulder). 

 

The last picture, gown illustration featuring Arupadathu (the higher formlesness).
