Featured Article: Sapto Djojokartiko Bride and Evening Collection 2012-2013


art8amby got the amazing chance to photographed the backstage at Sapto Djojokartiko‘s Bride and Evening Collection 2012-2013 fashion show last week, Friday, April 06th 2012 at The Grand Ballroom Ritz-Carlton Pacific Place, Jakarta.

The Solo born designer presented 30 stunningly romantic dresses that was inspired by the delicate peony flower with tulle, lace, rosettes, embroideries and sequins detailing that took our breath away. The exquisite evening dresses, the stunning cheongsam dresses and those delicately beautiful wedding dresses are absolutely to die for!

It’s always been a pleasure to snapped models backstage before the show where you can see what they’re up to, to kill the time. Some models read books, some listening to music while others prefer to have something to eat or chat with others.

The effortlessly cool Bianca proved that models is just a human like us, in which she snacks on a bottle of Coke (not the diet one!) and chocolate wafers while listening to music. Models do eat, people.

Katrina just bought the latest issue of Elle Indonesia that weighs 1000+ pages and check on her latest works that featured in the magazine who celebrates their 4th anniversary this month. Katya Talanova is always the one who’s really fun to be photographed with. She is very humble yet professional even though lot of people already recognized her from her TV stints. She kept her feet on the ground and that what makes you go far in the modelling industry.

The current spokesmodel of Pantene, Dominique Agisca Diyose, who opened the show, showed her sparkling personality before we took her photos along with fellow oriental looking top model, Marcella Tanaya before Adrian Suryapradipa‘s team work on their hair and make up with soft colored blush and gorgeous braids. Both of the lovely girls are so much fun in the backstage!

We were surprised when we know that the runner up of the 2011 season of Russia’s Next Top Model, Yulia Vlasenko, will be walking the show yesterday. We loved her strong face in which she managed to make it soft at the same time. Did you know that she fell quite hard during the finale, but she risen up gracefully with her confident face and elegant hand gestures.

She is such a pro! We salutes you Yulia Vlasenko.

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 😉
