Shades, my latest painting on 40x50cm canvas with oil color

 I could not sleep when I wrote this draft post in the middle of night. my mind was flying about how great our God is. He really gives me what I want, yet I also think I need it, more than I need. I consider it as a christmas present. Perhaps for some of you, it is just another ordinary thing. But for me, it gives much more hope and strength. Nah, I will tell you later in my upcoming post, okay? :)

There have been so many joy and tears this year. the trial and process we have been through, I believe it teaches us to be a better person in the future. This could be my last post in 2013. I hope in 2014 there'll be so many exciting surprises coming toward us. I hope for myself, I can achieve what I want to achieve. I hope that achievement is God's purpose in my life. I really hope so :)

Merry Christmas 2013! See you in 2014! :)

Thank you Fahmy!!!

The huge rain just dropped by. Here I am sitting in front of my computer and drinking my instant coffee. I just think why my internet connection runs so slow, like often. I called the provider to fix it and the crew came to my house few times but the connection still sucks.
Just random thoughts accross my minds.
Well, I have an uncertain length of holiday this time. Nevertheless, I keep myself busy and do things I love then. I had many good chances beforehand, the chances I've dreamed about to do the stuff that I think I'm gonna like. But, I just wasted them away. Just like that. 
I don't know the particular reason why I did that. There's a lot to be considered with. But I still have an optimist mind. I believe that the opportunity I seek will appear so soon.
I decide to have a rest a little while. I often feel so burdened and think I can't walk any further. I realize that I already run so far yet not so quick. I can say that I'm in the progress in regaining my fire back. I wish it will be worthy at the end.
            In the meanwhile of “meditating”, I do many things (I like) such as drawing, painting, making illustration, etc. It helps a lot and makes a positive thinking. Besides, I’m surrounded by good people supporting me as well. Thank God.

The APPMI's post is not over yet. This is my another favorite collection.

The feminine oriental look has mesmerized me. The pretty gradation color does speak a loud.

Gregorious Vici brings us back to the old European trend. He combines the pale color with black in his wide skirt. The leaves embellishment is so amazing. The overused of accessories and huge headpieces doesn't look too much, I think, because it fits the total look well.


Today, I bring you to some of the hottest RTW items in Jakarta Fashion Week 2014, from the monochrome-colored until the sparkling colorful fashion. I collage my favorites which are made by the Indonesian talented designers, such as August Soesastro, Friederich Herman, Billy Tjong, Jeffry Tan, Yosafat Kurniawan, Major Minor, Toton, and Dian Pelangi. Enjoy!!

Clean and simple cut is always up-to-date. August makes his woman become more mature.

The black edgy jacket with geometric fish scale paneling below... I love!

The monochrome shades becomes more interesting and different by adding the gold spikes accent which is very smart.

I've never thought that the cutting of blazer can be this fun and unusual. Friederich Herman keeps his design edgy and bold and says that a woman look should be strong and cool. I love the asymmetry cutting inside the leather jacket worn by Hege Wollan!!

Playing with the digital printing is always fun, isn't it? Billy Tjong prints his design in his latest dress and bags. In addition, he also has another printing, which I prefer to, such as the nature scenery which is very cool. But, I think the wig doesn't look as natural as the printing. It would be better a ponytail or something else natural.

Ah, what can I say? If I were Rachel Zoe, I would say, "This colorful jungle print?? I die. This is Bananas!!" This "Wanderlust" collection is made by the team consisting of  Ari Seputra, Ambar Pratiwi, and Inneke Margarethe. I love the jungle-printed top with neon accent. It is so fashion-forward.

This collection as you can see, is about ocean life. It is so colorful but not shocking. It has artsy details in a very wearable outfit! I feel the ocean wave when I see the cutting of the collection. Don't you feel the same?

The hijab designer who is also known by her colorful design is showing off her talent again at JFW 2014. She brings the attendance of colorful umbrella along the show. I like the colorful beads embellishment that gives a fun and chic look at the same time.

Lucca's work

     I was so blessed that I have good friends around. Shortly, I met these amazing boys: Lucca and Fahmy. We have the same interest and just get each other since we met. I am gifted by God because they're so amazing. I couldn't be myself now at this point if I didn't meet them. They help and support me a lot. We laugh at our silly story like a lot.
     Well, the team member will decrease because Lucca goes back to his hometown. That means he will not be available in Jakarta for uncertain time. I remember the first time we met was in Lookbook Jakarta Event. We were awkward at first fifteen-thirty minutes but after that we just clicked clicked like we were old friends. Since that event, we continue the journey with Fahmy.
     I do already miss Lucca a lot (and so does Fahmy, I suppose). I always wonder why the friendship didn't start earlier so I could know him any longer. Although we three still keep in contact but I hope we can hang around again some time. I miss you Caaaaaaa....

Jakarta Fashion Week 2014's fever is not over. I bring you back to APPMI (Asosiasi Perancang & Pengusaha Mode Indonesia) show where I already pick my favorite looks below.


This ready to wear look has a simple way and very casual. It doesn't look too much energy but still stylish. I love the leather accent on it.

Huge headpiece and heavy material becomes one look, why not? It is surprising when you know the dress made of hundreds of scarfs. Weww!!

Glossy and minimalist look but the rich details on top is truly pretty. The dress line is gorgeous. 

What is more interesting than having a painting printed in your dress? Fuji Tjandra makes it happen in his collection titled by Asia Syndrome. The oriental women printed in the textile is awesome!

Can't agree more of the high-end and classy collection by Poppy Dharsono.

It is a sophisticated batik dress with a sense of modern style.

It is my personal favorite collection so far. I like saying to my self that one of them will be my wedding gown in the future :)
