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.

Yesterday I had the chance to attended the 2011 Bridal Collection fashion show of Indonesian Designer Sapto Djojokartiko (click to visit his blog where he posted all of his works there) at Ballroom The Ritz-Carlton Pacific Place Jakarta. I also got the fabulous chance to visited the backstage during make up session and rehearsal just before the show started where 12 models of JIM Models wearing the designer’s exquisite and lovely wedding dresses!!

The models are Fillant, Mega, Pamela, Moudy, Sarah, Antie, Ocha, Merry, Prinka, Drina Ciputra, Marcella Tanaya (she opened the show and just won an award for 2011 Talented New Female Model from Amica Indonesia earlier that night) and the humble Juanita (who closed the show).

I also bumped to some of my friends there, Kaymori (blogger and stylist for iCreate Indonesia) and Luki Ali of lukimages (photographer). The beautiful model and photographer Nicoline Patricia Malina also made appearance on the show. She’s super nice!

The show was in conjunction with Harper’s Bazaar IndonesiaBazaar Bridal Week 2011” that will be held until this Sunday, April 10th 2011 at Ballroom The Pacific Place. Izabel Jahja, the Editor in Chief of the magazine posed for the second time for art8amby. Thank you ma’am!. Sapto Djojokartiko also opened a booth there (click for the designer’s post of the event) and I took some photos of the collections featured. If you’re in Jakarta, make sure you visits the event and who knows, you will find the wedding dress you’ve dreamed about 😉

Amby of art8amby.
