Merry during rehearsal on the last day of Jakarta Fashion Week 2012

Please enjoy the images taken by art and amby from the backstage, rehearsal, run through and after shows of the final day of Jakarta Fashion Week 2012, Friday, November 18th 2011 at Pacific Place.

That night, five of Indonesia‘s talented fashion designers, Auguste Soesastro, Sally Koeswanto, Sebastian Gunawan, Sapto Djojokartiko, and Tex Saverio, are presenting their interpretation on “Celebrating Women”, the theme for Dewi Fashion Knights, the final show on the highly anticipated annual event, Jakarta Fashion Week.

Auguste Soesastro, who once worked for Ralph Rucci, dons minimalist collection with great tailoring in cream, ivory, white and a hint of black and orange. Sally Koeswanto, who graduated from Whitehouse School of Design, Sydney in 1994, presented sexy and body hugging Chinese inspired dresses titled “Love, Passion, and Lust“. Sebastian Gunawan in his second participation for Dewi Fashion Knights gave something different from his usual elegant collection with tribal printed flowing dresses and edgy headpieces.

Sapto Djojokartiko made people gasp with towering high laser cut steel heeled shoes where the model could barely walk. His Calon Arang inspired designs were mysteriously breathtaking and very editorial ready! Last but not least, Tex Saverio, whose his gown was featured in a spread of Harper Bazaar US worn by Lady Gaga, presented gold themed collection with magnificent detailing. Lady Gaga should worn Tex‘s and Sapto‘s dresses for her next performances in our opinion.
