Featured Article: Denny Wirawan Bride 2013


Denny Wirawan presented his very first bridal line during Grand Hyatt Jakarta Wedding Fair last Saturday, April 13th 2013 at the hotel’s ballroom. The collection was named “Un Amore” and has more than 30 looks, including 7 pastel and metallic menswear suits. The current face of LT Pro and top catwalker, Katya Talanova landed the honor to opened the fashion show in a bold red flirty dress with flower petals. Flower appliqué appeared throughout the feminine yet elegant collection. Scattered below the waistline, on the shoulder, bust area, and on the train of a white dress worn by Ilmira Usmanova.

The 45 year old designer loved flower so much (as it fits the Un Amore themed very well) he even used it in forms of embroideries detailing, lace fabrics and damask patterns. Some of the beautiful headpiece by Oscar Daniel also comes with feminine flower details, while other headpiece was made from sparkly materials, metals, satin ribbons and feathers. The fun playful dresses in first sequence were very cocktail party appropriate with the use of pretty colors like teal, soft yellow, bronze, and bold red as primary color or just accent. Other details he used and featured in the second sequence were pearls, acrylic-like paillettes on the dress straps, and knotted belt–which is quite similar from his Bali Java collection showed recently at Indonesia Fashion Week.

Denny Wirawan gave lots of option for his various types of brides-to-be in the forms of svelte cheongsam, intricate evening dresses, mermaid gowns, kebayas, and ballgown shaped wedding dress (worn by Simona in the finale). This might be his first attempt to embrace the exciting bridal market, but we are pretty sure it won’t be his last. Check out the complete runway looks on our Facebook fanpage, here.

Kuala Lumpur-born fashion designer, Melinda Looi showcasing one of her labels (the other two are Melinda Looi Prêt-à-Porter and MELL) in the recently held Indonesia Fashion Week 2013, last Thursday.

The three times Designer of The Year recipient (two from Malaysian International Fashion Week, and one from Mercedes Benz Stylo Fashion Awards) wowed the guests at Jakarta Convention Center with her folkloric, gypsy girl meets African queen collection. Chiffon, animal prints, lace, satin, and textured fabrics were her choice of fabrics. The shapes were loose and flowing, but somewhat still exudes the feeling of sexy, sultry and fierceness as top names Kimmy Jayanti, Dominique Agisca Diyose, Christina Borries, Putri Sulistyowati, Katya Talanova, Ilmira Usmanova, and Reti Ragil amongst other models walked on the wide runway that evening.

Looi, who graduated from La Salle School of Fashion in Montreal, Canada, completed the bold looks with equally bold accessories. Multiple strands necklaces, big glamourous earrings, multicolored turbans, chunky bracelets, and striking antlers headpiece and arm bangles. See the complete runway looks on our Facebook fanpage, and get ready to be blown away!
