Featured Article: Fashion Nation 2012



Last week art8amby attented the opening night of the 6th Annual Senayan City‘s Fashion Nation. For their opening event this year, they presented fashion show from four of Indonesia’s prominent fashion designers (Priyo Oktaviano, Denny Wirawan, Sapto Djojokartiko and the runway returns of Ronald V Gaghana).

The opening event of Fashion Nation 2012 also presented some awards and an accompanying movie starring actress Atiqah Hasiholan that was directed by Peter Bannan in black and white to match the theme this year, Noir et Blanc: The Ultimate Style.

Even though the show delayed for an hour, but the event, especially the fashion show, was enjoyable. The MC, Aline Adita, came to the stage from the Senayan City‘s trademark: the Devil-Wears-Prada-heels-escalator and called her lovely co-host of the evening to the stage, former MTV Asia VJ Denise Keller who looks absolutely gorgeous in a nude Sapto Djojokartiko dress and sleek short ponytail!

As mentioned earlier, few awards, The Style Makers Awards to be exact, were given at the opening night of Fashion Nation. Some of this year’s winner are Kelly Tandiono (Most Stylish Model), Atiqah Hasiholan (Most Stylish Actress), Alexandra Asmasoebrata–who looks more like a model than a racer (Most Stylish Athlete) and Gaby Bakrie (Most Stylish Socialite).

Priyo Oktaviano opened the main event with his sporty yet chic collection that was dominated in gold and white colors with studs detailing. Those Mary Poppins head pieces worn by Laura Muljadi and Dominique Diyose in the finale were very stylish. Denny Wirawan presented a collection that was very Indonesian yet chic with the beautiful local fabrics and the glamour cutting.

Ronald V Gaghana wearable gold, silver and black dresses were shown with bouffant hair and red and blue platform heels while Sapto Djojokartiko‘s dramatic collection were the perfect way to end the night: gold lips? Check. Exquisite yet mysterious detailing? Check. Amazingly gorgeous accessories? Check.

Fashion Nation 2012 starts from April 11th until April 22nd at Senayan City, Jakarta. If you happens to be in Jakarta this month, you may also visit the installations from the participating designers from the opening night that will be displayed until the last day of the event.

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.

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 😉

Amby from Art8amby.
