JAKARTA FASHION WEEK 2018
Hi everyone, welcome back to my blog. Today, we are going to talk about Jakarta Fashion Week 2018. WHO’S EXCITED?
For my international readers, Jakarta Fashion Week is basically the same fashion week as the big four fashion weeks but in the smaller scale. Jakarta Fashion Week or mostly has known as JFW is one of the biggest fashion week in Asia. It’s usually presenting collections from beginners, established local brands, go to international designers, and international designers as well.
So, let’s cut to the chase. Jakarta Fashion Week 2018 was my second year. This year was the 10th anniversary of Jakarta Fashion Week. I really enjoyed the show and mesmerized by the collections. I always love to come to JFW, to take pictures and to post them to my social media.
This year, I watched 3 shows (8 designers in total). Most of you keep asking me about how I could be invited to the shows. The answer is I know the designers. I know some of them for years and was ever wearing their collections before. But still, you can watch the show if you’re paying attention to Jakarta Fashion Week’s website. They seemed to announce free invitations week before the first day of the show. (not all of them, cause some shows are very limited and exclusives)
I was really exited to watch the show of these talented designers. They were Andhita Siswandi, Eridani, Albert Yanuar, Sean & Sheila, Tities Sapoetra, Dinipratiwira, Barli Asmara and last but not least Didiet Maulana. Their shows were amazing. Though, most of them showcased women collections, but still so beautiful to watch. As I told you before, every designer has his/her own signature style and characteristics.
As highlights, I will tell you about my impression when I watched the shows. The first one, Andhita Siswandi is paying attention to the detail, mixing delicate pieces with plain ones. Eridani, all I can tell you is it’s really cultural. It felt like you were brought to somewhere beautiful. Albert Yanuar is one of my favorites. He always comes with a strong philosophy on his design and shows surprises as the closing.
Sean and Sheila are a great designers-duo. This time, they came with strong messages through their collection. Tities Sapoetra is always showing his playful collection, from Spongebob to beads and prints and so what’s next? Diniira came with a complete package that you ever want to see, so many elegant, classy and sexy pieces. Beside the collaboration of Make Over Indonesia with these designers. They also collaborated with three famous make up artist in Indonesia. They were Yoga Septa, Philipe Karunia, and Dhirman Putra.
Barli Asmara showcased elegant collection and surprised us with top influencers that walked down the runway. Last but not least, we have Ikat Indonesia by Didiet Maulana. Ikat Indonesia is so rich when it comes to patterns. Inspired by lots of things, became beautiful pieces from the mastermind, Didiet Maulana. Yes, he is one of my favorites as well.
