— Fashion Designer —
Born in Surabaya-Indonesia, Biyan Wanaatmadja’s formative years were spent at Muller & Sohn Private Mode Schule in Dusseldorf (Germany) and the London College of Fashion (England) where he was graduated as a fashion designer. He started to produce and retail his own design in a small atelier in Surabaya-Indonesia, which then formalized as his first clothing line, Biyan, for women in 1984 and followed by his second line, Studio 133 Biyan in 1985.
Biyan collection is described as romantic, classic, and sophisticated, whereas the juxtaposing interplay between fabric, texture, color and form, of taut tailoring and hyper-romanticism are strong signature to the brand. What makes Biyan so special is the refined quality craftsmanship of beautiful embroidery, intricate beading techniques and its original silk prints as it is a commitment to his design aesthetic and vision.
