Backstage Images of Batik Danar Hadi 2011 Fashion Show

Me and Paula Verhoeven

Batik Danar Hadi, the powerhouse label famously known of their batik collections just held a fashion show “The Glory of Batik” collaborating with five Indonesian foremost fashion designers: Oscar Lawalata, Carmanita, Ghea Panggabean, Hutama Adhi and Sapto Djojokartiko at The Ritz-Carlton Pacific Place, Jakarta, Indonesia on April 28th, 2011.

Each designers presented sixteen collections using the exquisite batik printed fabrics with their own imaginations. The fashion show made me love this beautiful cloth that traditionally uses a manual wax-resist dyeing technique even more! Of course we still have that ubër famous let’s-wear-batik-every-friday action, but it was more than that. It’s about appreciating our Indonesian heritage and take it to the next level! I bet you still remember how international designer, Dries Van Noten translated it to a chic collections for his Spring Summer 2010 show in Paris back in October 2009.

From the casual parang printed batik dresses by Oscar Lawalata (oh, don’t forget to check out those batik turbans!); the formal male collections by Danar Hadi Men; to the glamourous evening gowns with sequins and beads detailing by Sapto Djojokartiko, proves that the beautiful fabrics can be very versatile!

As usual, I made a visit to the backstage before and after the show to took pictures of my favourite subject : models. Twenty five female models and eight male models walked the runway with live performances from Lea Simanjuntak (in Danar Hadi and Hutama Adhi dresses), Marcel (wearing Danar Hadi and Carmanita), Rossa (in Oscar Lawalata and Sapto Djojokartiko) and Ruth Sahanaya (wearing Danar Hadi and Ghea Panggabean).

Some of the models who walked for the shows are Paula Verhoeven (one of my favourite); Christina (she proved that she’s a professional model by still walked the show even though she’s not feeling well. Get well soon dear!); Nadya; Tya; Dhining; Whulandary Herman (the winner of Best Fashion Model at the 2010 Fashion Asia Award in China); Frans (who’s also an actor); Thiago; Thomas (1st runner up of L-Men of The Year 2010); Karina; Masha; Sharlotta Senk; Ilmira (her actor husband, Teuku Zacky, also walked for the show) and JIM Models girls: Sarah, Pamela, Mega, Prinka, Filant and Ksenia (the main girl for Elle Indonesia 3rd anniversary editorials!)

Enjoy the images below and please forgive the blurry images. Art is way better in taking photographs but unfortunately he’s overseas at the moment. He’ll be back this October 😉
