The first time we knew about Auguste Soesastro was almost two years ago, back in November 2011 when he participated in Dewi Fashion Knights. He presented a clean collection with earthy tones (click here to see the runway images). And now, the soft spoken Jakarta-born fashion designer once again presented a clean and sharp collection during the first day of Indonesia Fashion Week 2013, on Thursday, February 14th at Jakarta Convention Center.
The designer who graduated from Chambre Syndicale de la Couture, Paris combined his signature sleek cutting with the exquisite weave fabrics from Ayotupas area, western part of East Timor, as a cropped top or shawl. His runway girls (top models Julia Jamil opened and Laura Muljadi closed) were sporting dark blue lips and side-swept hair which completed the moody and dark ambience from the fashion show. The dresses towards the end of the show comes in mono colors (red, fuschia or grey) with loose and relaxed shapes.
These Fall Winter 2013 collection from the Kraton label (Kraton means palace in Javanese word), has established his name as one of Indonesia’s brightest young fashion designers. Check out the complete runway looks in our Facebook fanpage, here.
