On today’s Get-To-Know article, we’re getting a closer look at Wall of Fades—the biggest denim event in Indonesia that is a part of @darahkubiru since 2010. We recently got the opportunity to chat with the co-founder of Darahkubiru (@direz_), and here are some of his interesting stories:
To start with, did you guys know, that Wall of Fades was actually initiated from Kaskus, where the “founding fathers” a.k.a the “denim heads” gathers, and later ends up with meeting up at a food stall (“Warteg”)? On top of that, at a similar time, on a different side of the globe, Direz was building Darahkubiru! Not long after he returns from his studies in Amsterdam, he was invited to be a part of Wall of Fades—which was the first step of his journey in WOF.
Fun Fact: Over 2000 visitors came to the 1st Wall of Fades, when the capacity of the whole event was actually only around 1000.
Now let’s dig deeper about this year’s WOF. Why “Raw Canvas”?
“We expect this year’s visitors to be like a raw canvas—not yet aware of their own style,” says Direz.
He also said that we’ll be able to see many kinds of different style references, starting from their exhibition until the diverse participating tenants (yes, you will definitely find other things other than denim products), so when you step out of Wall of Fades 2019, you are to get an understanding about your style!
Going on from that, he told us that for the first time ever they are creating “POJOK EKSPERIMEN”, where you can experience personalization at its finest by creating something according to your very own preference. From manual printing your t-shirt to indigo-dyeing, anything you decide to create there will reflect your personal style!
