Backstage Images of Batik Danar Hadi 2011 Fashion Show


Me and Paula Verhoeven

Batik Danar Hadi, the powerhouse label famously known of their batik collections just held a fashion show “The Glory of Batik” collaborating with five Indonesian foremost fashion designers: Oscar Lawalata, Carmanita, Ghea Panggabean, Hutama Adhi and Sapto Djojokartiko at The Ritz-Carlton Pacific Place, Jakarta, Indonesia on April 28th, 2011.

Each designers presented sixteen collections using the exquisite batik printed fabrics with their own imaginations. The fashion show made me love this beautiful cloth that traditionally uses a manual wax-resist dyeing technique even more! Of course we still have that ubër famous let’s-wear-batik-every-friday action, but it was more than that. It’s about appreciating our Indonesian heritage and take it to the next level! I bet you still remember how international designer, Dries Van Noten translated it to a chic collections for his Spring Summer 2010 show in Paris back in October 2009.

From the casual parang printed batik dresses by Oscar Lawalata (oh, don’t forget to check out those batik turbans!); the formal male collections by Danar Hadi Men; to the glamourous evening gowns with sequins and beads detailing by Sapto Djojokartiko, proves that the beautiful fabrics can be very versatile!

As usual, I made a visit to the backstage before and after the show to took pictures of my favourite subject : models. Twenty five female models and eight male models walked the runway with live performances from Lea Simanjuntak (in Danar Hadi and Hutama Adhi dresses), Marcel (wearing Danar Hadi and Carmanita), Rossa (in Oscar Lawalata and Sapto Djojokartiko) and Ruth Sahanaya (wearing Danar Hadi and Ghea Panggabean).

Some of the models who walked for the shows are Paula Verhoeven (one of my favourite); Christina (she proved that she’s a professional model by still walked the show even though she’s not feeling well. Get well soon dear!); Nadya; Tya; Dhining; Whulandary Herman (the winner of Best Fashion Model at the 2010 Fashion Asia Award in China); Frans (who’s also an actor); Thiago; Thomas (1st runner up of L-Men of The Year 2010); Karina; Masha; Sharlotta Senk; Ilmira (her actor husband, Teuku Zacky, also walked for the show) and JIM Models girls: Sarah, Pamela, Mega, Prinka, Filant and Ksenia (the main girl for Elle Indonesia 3rd anniversary editorials!)

Enjoy the images below and please forgive the blurry images. Art is way better in taking photographs but unfortunately he’s overseas at the moment. He’ll be back this October 😉

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 😉
