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: Indonesia Fashion Week 2013 – Bali Java by Denny Wirawan


You know you’re in for treat when the first model out on the runway wearing a unique headpiece. Top Indonesian model Kelly Tandiono was the first girl sent out by Denny Wirawan, wearing a metallic sequined shorts, grey top, cropped jacket with beads, a heel-less platform shoes and a headpiece that looks like rice stems/rice straws.

Next girl out wearing a cropped pants, embroidered white shirt, and a cropped jacket made from Palembang’s songket fabric (he mentioned that some of the fabrics made from pineapple fiber), with similar color palettes as Kelly. The theme was “Poetique de Savane” in which the designer translated his inspiration, a dry African savanna, into a feminine, beautiful, yet strong collection with earthy and soft color tones such as brown, taupe, gold, grey, bronze, with a stroke of citrine. He wowed the audience at Jakarta Convention Center last week during Indonesia Fashion Week 2013, with 20 looks that exquisitely wearable yet still radiates traditional nuance.

Those Oscar Daniel‘s intricately natural headpieces getting more dramatic towards the end of the fashion show, where luxe evening wear (the kimono inspired dresses stole our attention) with long tulle trains were shown by Paula Verhoeven and fellow catwalkers.
It’s a true feast for the eyes, Mr. Denny Wirawan.

Featured Article: Indonesia Fashion Week 2013 – Sofie


Algoritmic was the theme for Sofie‘s latest fashion show that showcased during Indonesia Fashion Week 2013 last Thursday, February 14th, at Jakarta Convention Center.

This year, Sofie presented a totally different approach from his 2012 Explosion collection, that was also presented in the same event. No more bright, bubbly, flirty colors. There were only monochrome palettes, with a few dash of blue and brown. The cutting was so urban chic yet practical with lots of minis, sleeveless dress, and cropped jacket that surely can be mix and match with other pieces from the collection.

He used grapchic modern patterns, dots, houndstooth and checkered prints in most of the looks (it’s so on trend this season), which suprisingly matched to the distorted noisy industrial soundtrack. For the menswear, the choice of colors were far more subtle, but still considerably wearable with rolled up textured pants and jackets with unconventional cutting. Bold accesories like big necklaces with chain and two-tone leather shoes (few shoes came in three different colors or with patterns) completed the look.
