DIY Style: Fashion, Music and Global Digital Cultures

DIY Style: Fashion, Music and Global Digital Cultures (Dress, Body, Culture) by Brent Luvaas
English | Oct. 2, 2012 | ISBN: 0857850393 | 203 Pages | PDF | 1 MB

Armed with cheap digital technologies and a fiercely independent spirit, millions of young people from around the world have taken cultural production into their own hands, crafting their own clothing lines, launching their own record labels, and forging a vast, collaborative network of impassioned amateurs more interested in making than consuming. DIY Style tells the story of this international do-it-yourself (DIY) movement through a major case study of one of its biggest, but least known contingents: the "indie" music and fashion scene of the predominantly Muslim Southeast Asian island nation of Indonesia.

With its 17,000 islands, 800 languages and 300 ethnic groups, Indonesia is a country of superlatives. Yet this vast diversity is still searching for a common identity. After 350 years of Dutch colonial rule, decades of regional wars of independence and a military regime that claimed the lives of a million people, there has still been no attempt to come to terms with the past. But Indonesian writers have been calling for this for years: courageous writers trying to dispel the silence.
