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 😉

Bazaar Fashion Concerto 2010


I got the chance to attended the 2010 Bazaar Fashion Concerto at JCC Plenary Hall Jakarta on December 01st, 2010. The event was held every year since 2006 and this year was quite special because it’s also the celebration of Harper’s Bazaar Indonesia 10th Anniversary.

Crowd at entrance

They have 10 Indonesian designers with their fantastic designs that interpreted their imagination of Fashion and Technology just like this year’s theme : FASHIONTECH

Young talented Indonesia singer, Sherina Munaf are one of the performer on the show along with the extravagant Melly Goeslaw, the gorgeous Dewi Sandra, rocker Andy /RIF and the one and only Ubiet. Becky Tumewu was the host on that night while Andy Ayunir acted as Music Director.

The designers (with their collections name and make up & hair by) are :
Deden Siswanto – Great Galore – make up & hair by Donny Liem,
Sofie – Iconic Fluidity – make up & hair by Adi Adrian,
Kiata Kwanda – Sculptech – make up & hair by Jimmy Himawan,
Sally Koeswanto – The Extraterrestrial – make up & hair by Gusnaldi,
Wita for BIN House – Fabric In Motion – make up & hair by Qiqi Franky & Team,
Sapto Djojokartiko – Flysionaire – make up & hair by Philip Kwok,
Oka Diputra – Ré-Évolution – make up & hair by Michael Zimbalist,
Ari Seputra – Techno Afrique – make up & hair by Wim Soeitoe for KLEO Beauty,
Susan Budihardjo – The Glasses Pages – make up & hair by Qiqi Franky & Team,
Denny Wirawan – Eternal Revival – make up by Oscar Daniel hair by Hendro Revco.

This year’s show is the best in my opinion. From the theme, collections and the show executions. I was stayed on my seat until the show its over because they presented the great collections with a stunning presentations!!. The combination of techno music, great visual art and also the awesome runway presentations (noted that it was the works of Inet Leimena as show director and Panca Makmun as choreographer) made a FABULOUS show!!! My only distractions was 3 people that sat behind me. They chatted and commented all the way from the show started until the show ended with an annoying level of sound… Wish i could thrown something to them 😀

The Finale

I gotta say, my favorite collections are : Deden Siswanto with his love to local fabrics and Indonesian heritage (Paula Verhoeven looking fab with long silver cape as she closed his section!) he gave his signature collection with a twist. The dramatic collection of Sally Koeswanto where she knows how to dress a woman and make them feel sexy!! (the flowing gown is my favourite).
Sapto Djojokartiko’s structured and edgy designs was memorable!! He got his inspirations from “aeromodelling” where he combines wooden details and feminine fabrics such as tulle. One dress even have a wooden windmill on it and who can missed THAT finale dress worn by Bazaar Fashion Concerto 2010 face, Julia Jamil !! (some models wearing wood airplanes on their blonde beehives!).
Last but not least, Denny Wirawan with his military inspired collection (he used lots of red which is great for a different military look).

Too see the collections you have to be patient because Harper’s Bazaar Indonesia will featured the collections exclusively in fashion spreads in their future issue. And hopefully they will give a DVD just like the previous years so that everyone can see it also 😉
