Abstract

Kebaya is one of Indonesian traditional dresses. Kebaya has undergone much development throughout its history in Indonesian fashion trend. The story of the evolution of the emergence kebaya from traditional to contemporary kebaya designs is interesting to study since nowadays kebaya is also developed as a white gown wedding dress. One of the magazines that displays much about white kebaya as a wedding dress is Kebaya In Style, published by PT. Gaya Cipta Indonesia, Jakarta. Among 4 volumes of these magazines, there are two volumes (volume 1 (2010) and 4 (2013)) that explore the best work and creation of kebaya that are influenced by particular design of white gown. Using Semiotic theory suggested by Roland Barthes, this study is an attempt to reveal how Indonesian kebaya as a wedding dress is represented the meaning of white gown. Furthermore, the new meaning of white gown represented through Indonesian kebaya in Kebaya In Style magazine is finally uncovered. This study finds out that Kebaya as a wedding dress has been influenced by European white gown design including the choice of the color, which is white. This result of the study shows a contradictory of common preferences for Indonesian wedding dress. In Indonesia, white kebaya for a wedding dress is usually used for akad nikah (marriage covenant); while for the wedding party the magazine suggest the colorful one. Interestingly, this trend is no longer followed. Recently, the bride prefers to wear white kebaya for both akad nikah and wedding party. Thus, this study finds that there is a shifting of the meaning of white gown represented through Indonesian kebaya as a wedding dress. The meaning of white gown is not only purity and holy but it is a sign of following global trend. It shows that the white kebaya becomes a significant sign of contemporary global clothing following global trend of a wedding dress. This study hopefully makes a contribution to the field of cultural studies in general and the relation between fashion and culture in particular. From a broader perspective, the result of the study may reveal that fashion can be reflected or challenged through media such as a magazine.
