Featured Article: Senayan City Fashion Nation 2013 Opening Event




The annually held Senayan City Fashion Nation has reached its seventh edition this year and it’s bigger than ever! Last night, the opening event was held at the shopping centre’s atrium with a fashion show from Ari Seputra, Rusly Tjohnardi and Mel Ahyar. In the glamorous event, Senayan City also proudly announced that the prominent shopping centre will be the new home for Jakarta Fashion Week that will be held later this October.

Violinist Mayla Fayza serenading the guests as she opened the event in a Rusly Tjohnardi dress (she also closed the finale wearing a dress from Mel Ahyar) and riding the new Audi to the elegant black and gold stage. After she performed, the host of the evening, the ever lovely Nadya Hutagalung, come up and greets the excited guests wearing a gorgeous beaded strapless dress from Biyan. The top 3 finalists from the first cycle of Asia’s Next Top Model came to the stage afterwards to present The Style Maker Awards to model Paula Verhoeven, singer Andien, socialite Fitria Yusuf, and actor Rio Dewanto respectively as the recipient from each category.

Ari Seputra was the first designer to present the collection. Advina Ratnaningsih opened his fashion show in a sleeveless wrap dress with white hemline. The collection used the mostly the color of the season, black and white. Ari Seputra combined it with mullet shapes, loose yet edgy fittings and sporty details. Rusly Tjohnardi’s latest dresses and gown were mostly made out of tulle with his soft muted colors with a dash of blue, gold and green. Looks like that he was inspired by the Indian princess as the models strutting the catwalk (Antie Damayanti opened) in intricate headpiece that surprisingly fits the collection. Last but not least on the opening event of Fashion Nation we got Mel Ahyar. With her signature column silhouette, she managed to give interesting variety of long dresses with the used of fabrics including taffeta, sheer panels, textured fabrics, tulle and lace as soon as Sarah Azka walked the runway as first face.



We leave you with some of the runway images, special pics of Asia’s Next Top Model finalists and winner— the humble Stephanie Retuya from Philippines, the bubbly Kate Ma from Taiwan, the elegant Jessica Amornkuldilok from Thailand, and the leggy Sofia Wakabayashi from Japan (who’s represented by Perfect 10 Management in Jakarta)—and model off duty style with Ayu Faradilla and Dea Nabila.

Featured Article: Sapto Djojokartiko Bride and Evening Collection 2012-2013


art8amby got the amazing chance to photographed the backstage at Sapto Djojokartiko‘s Bride and Evening Collection 2012-2013 fashion show last week, Friday, April 06th 2012 at The Grand Ballroom Ritz-Carlton Pacific Place, Jakarta.

The Solo born designer presented 30 stunningly romantic dresses that was inspired by the delicate peony flower with tulle, lace, rosettes, embroideries and sequins detailing that took our breath away. The exquisite evening dresses, the stunning cheongsam dresses and those delicately beautiful wedding dresses are absolutely to die for!

It’s always been a pleasure to snapped models backstage before the show where you can see what they’re up to, to kill the time. Some models read books, some listening to music while others prefer to have something to eat or chat with others.

The effortlessly cool Bianca proved that models is just a human like us, in which she snacks on a bottle of Coke (not the diet one!) and chocolate wafers while listening to music. Models do eat, people.

Katrina just bought the latest issue of Elle Indonesia that weighs 1000+ pages and check on her latest works that featured in the magazine who celebrates their 4th anniversary this month. Katya Talanova is always the one who’s really fun to be photographed with. She is very humble yet professional even though lot of people already recognized her from her TV stints. She kept her feet on the ground and that what makes you go far in the modelling industry.

The current spokesmodel of Pantene, Dominique Agisca Diyose, who opened the show, showed her sparkling personality before we took her photos along with fellow oriental looking top model, Marcella Tanaya before Adrian Suryapradipa‘s team work on their hair and make up with soft colored blush and gorgeous braids. Both of the lovely girls are so much fun in the backstage!

We were surprised when we know that the runner up of the 2011 season of Russia’s Next Top Model, Yulia Vlasenko, will be walking the show yesterday. We loved her strong face in which she managed to make it soft at the same time. Did you know that she fell quite hard during the finale, but she risen up gracefully with her confident face and elegant hand gestures.

She is such a pro! We salutes you Yulia Vlasenko.
