Sarong Kebaya: Peranakan Fashion & Its International Sources – Exhibition


Explore the sarong kebaya – favoured fashion of Peranakan women for generations – in this special exhibition at the Peranakan Museum. This visual feast traces the evolution of the kebaya from its roots in 16th-century Islamic garments through its development across Southeast Asia.

Visitors will discover how Peranakan fashion was influenced by other communities, and how it developed its own unique character.

Highlights of the exhibition include batik masterpieces on loan from Dutch museums and an impressive collection of kebayas and robes dating from the 18th to the 20th century.
