A Brief info about kebaya history:-

On the island of Java before 1600, kebayas were sacred clothing to be worn only by members of the Javanese monarchy. During the period of Dutch control of that island, European women began wearing kebayas as formal dress. During this period, kebayas were transformed from only using mori fabric to using silk with colorful embroidery.

A similar garment called the “nyonya kebaya” was first created by the Peranakan people of Malacca. They wore it with a sarong and beautiful beaded shoes called “kasut manek”. Nowadays, the nyonya kebaya is going through a period of revival, and is also becoming popular among non-Asian peoples.
