UNIDO - JO! By Creative Jordan
JO! by Creative Jordanis a newley established Fashion Brand presenting its second Womenswear collection for Spring/Summer ’18.
The Jordanian traditional garments, colours, drawings and embroidery have evolved into an original contemporary style catering to an international taste.
JO! is casual, sophisticated, unexpected, modern, dynamic, fresh and timeless.
The Bedouin world has been the main source of inspiration: very easy-to-wear garments, contrasting colors, indigo-Blue dyed fabrics, decorated with a touch of embroidery.
The very unique ‘Diamond’ Jordanian embroidery stitch, that has disappeared in the recent past, has been revived through new geometrical embroidery patterns.
The traditional drawings have been translated intomodern and precious embroideries on the garments. Asymmetric and unexpected embroidered touches create interesting dynamic placements, making the pieces have unusual uniqueness.
The simple straight and ‘A’ line shapes of the traditional garments were developed into easy-to-wear clothes for a new casual but sophisticated wardrobe, mostly suitable for daily-wear.
Shirts, shirt-dresses, top and blouses, short jackets and longrobesare the core of the collection.
The traditional Indigo-Blue hand-dyed fabric has been replaced by the contemporary and timeless Denim fabric. Original fiber mixtures create new concepts: the texture of linen, combined with the softness and smoothness of Cotton and Tencel, reaches a sophisticated blend and an unexpected touch.A charming Cotton Sateen Denim combines the feeling of the casual material with a shiny surface. In addition to Denim,our crispy poplin fabric offersa fresh touch to the collection.
