Featured Article: Indonesia Tatler’s Ever After



Indonesia Tatler held an special event earlier this month at Sampoerna Strategic Square, Jakarta, entitled Ever After. The three day event specialized in everything that brides-to-be needs before their big day.

As expected, you can see installations from wedding photographers, fashion designers, caterers, and other supporting tenants that will make your big day even more special. On the second day, Saturday, July 14th 2012, we attended the fashion show, presenting the latest collections from two of Indonesia’s most prominent fashion designers, Andreas Odang and Sapto Djojokartiko.

Andreas Odang opened his sequence with a svelte yellow and baby blue lace cheongsam dress. The color palettes for his collection are mostly lovely soft tones (baby blue, icy pink, champagne and white), with a dash of bright (yellow and green). We are loving the satin sleeveless dress encrusted with crystals and also the white dramatic ruffles dress, that fits perfectly with the modern yet sleek chignon created by Gusnaldi‘s team.

Gusnaldi transformed the sleek chignon into fabulous messy ponytails for Sapto Djojokartiko‘s fashion show afterwards. In less than an hour, all of the models strutting the catwalk in totally new hairstyles, in which the Solo born designer presented latest collection from his Bride and Evening line. Bravo for Gusnaldi and team!

Dotted lace, tulle, French lace and chiffon are the most seen fabrics on Sapto‘s runway. He applied flowers appliqués on the delicately beautiful dresses to made it even more romantic. Some of his dresses are sporting the must-have trends of 2012, peplum. His lace cheongsams are enriched with strategically placed peplums and exquisite embroideries. The intricate embroideries also appeared on his wedding gowns and velvet sweetheart neckline evening dresses.

We leave you with links to the complete runway images and also our special backstage coverage, so all you brides-to-be can get more inspirations for your special day. Of course, those who’s not yet married and people who just loves fashion can also view the images 😉

Featured Article: Mel Ahyar 2012-2013


Sapto Djojokartiko (click here to read our coverage on his show) isn’t the only ESMOD alumnus who presented the latest collection during ESMOD Jakarta Fashion Festival 2012 earlier this month. Fellow alumni, Mel Ahyar, shown her latest collection at Skeeno Hall, Gandaria City, entitled “The Scrapbook” which gained positive buzz and reviews amongst Indonesian fashion people.

She combined two different fabrics to created edgy and fun looks in which tweed, tulle and lamé made quite a number of appearances. With her exceptionally fun shapes, quirky patchworks and embroideries, she made her latest collection very attention-grabber yet impressive. Especially with the cheeky face masks that made it looks theatrical and also the used of corsets as accent.

The colors are mostly muted and black, but that’s what made it subtly special because you can wear it and yet people are still pay attention because of the unique details. It’s amazing that she didn’t go crazy on the accessories, because only platform ankle straps that completed the looks. Now, we’re intrigued to see more from her.
