The Geeky Baju Project is a series of Southeast Asian garment designs inspired by literature, video games, and films. In this series, I explore the intersection of popular culture with traditional garments as a means of storytelling. More at http://charisloke.com/geekybaju.
(Based on the Hunger Games trilogy by Suzanne Collins)
WHITE AS SNOW
Walk spotless and pure in a white silk baju Melayu with songket.
Floral and geometric patterns are commonly woven into songket with gold or silver threads.
PLAYING WITH FIRE
Draw all eyes to you with an embroidered Punjabi suit and jagged, slashed, dupatta.
The dupatta is a shawl-like scarf worn over the shoulder.
FASHION WITHOUT FEAR
You don’t need to shout to make a statement with this understated black silk baju Melayu with gold trim.
Baju Melayu can be worn with or without the samping, in formal and casual occasions.
