      I have never been expected that I can be into fashion. When I was in high school, I always wanted to be a doctor, undenying the fact that my biology and chemistry score was merely enough, hahaha. Nevertheless, I like to draw since I was a kid and like to ask my elementary school teacher to give my drawing a score. So, here I am releasing my latest sketch. Some of you may ever saw it first in my instagram. Inspired by the Art Deco (particularly from my latest Jember Fashion Carnaval post), I try to combine a depiction of Art Deco and my imagination of course.

            Make up is undeniably becoming the most important part of a total look. That is valid for a show at the class of Jember Fashion Carnaval. This show is famous too with the unusual make up carnaval. What can I say, I love the dynamic make up and the face emotion of course! Can you mention what kind of Artechsion sub-theme from the face? Enjoy!

            One show you should not miss is Jember Fashion Carnaval (JFC)’s show. This time, JFC presented “Artechsion” theme and rocked Esmod Jakarta Fashion Festival 2013. In this "Artechsion", there were sub-themes yet also being the inspirations such as Betawi, Art Deco, Venice, Bamboo, Tribes, Octopus, Beetle, Tibet, Canvas, and Spider. At the beginning of the show, JFC showed the audience the previous year costumes theme like Roman Empire and Dragon. The whole show quite represented the theme of Art-Technology-Illusion or the way we called it as “Artechsion”. The costumes were really awesome. Even the Art Deco costume could unpredictably spin like the windmill.  I felt the art when seeing the whole “Artechsion” costumes from head to toe. The costume was the media to picture the various technology on human body. We perhaps could never imagine the Art Deco could be cool like that, you know, it’s like a walking true Art Deco. Not only the Art Deco, but also the other wow sub-themes’ embodiment. Yup, it was the illusion of imagination. Thanks to the president of JFC, Dynand Fariz, who makes this amazing work and brings Indonesia by JFC into the fourth best world carnaval.

     Once again, I visited Esmod Jakarta Fashion Festival. This time, I came to Hian Tjien, Imelda Kartini, and Albert Yanuar’s show (in one show parade) there. They who were Esmod Jakarta’s alumni showed me an amazing show. Most of them showed their beautiful evening gowns.
      Talking about Hian Tjen, this young designer demonstrated his dusty pale, transparent, and body fit cutting gowns. The impression of sexy and elegant burst out as much as the inspiration: transparant and illusion. The Swarovsky addition in his gowns increased the extravagant feeling of the sexy and mysterious women with their mystical sense. Some of his gowns brought me to mind the last couture of Elie Saab’s dresses at the last couture collection. Perhaps, the hair, in my opinion, should be styled another way, boho braid, maybe? I’m not a fan of high hair lol. However, the hair style indeed brought the mysterious side.

      The transition of the classic age to the middle age in the mainland of Europe and Mediterranian had been inspired Imelda Kartini in her “Late Antiquity” show. Baroque motive and the voluminous skirt became the major attention. The complexity has been the character of Imelda Kartini’s design as complex as her last design at Bretzel label in last Jakarta Fashion Week (JFW) 2013. So does the headpiece’s difficulty. Anyway, the headpiece reminded us to one of McQueen’s. Don’t you think?

      La Vie Des Rose depicted us to a metamorphosis of a rose that succeed transformed into beautiful cocktail dresses and bridal gowns. Albert Yanuar brought us to wander his rose garden. Fuschia, red, pink, and white had colored the structured and motive dress that day. There were also man suits designed by Albert Yanuar. What was the unsual of his show? It was the transformation wearing. The man suits could reverse from the silver into fuschia inside. The red roses gown could also transformed not only once, but twice! Wow, I was mesmerized that time. I thought it was all done when the model lost her outer gown turning into a rose gown. Nevertheless, the rose gown turned once again into a short one. It remind me back into his show at JFW 2013. He could designed a skirt changing into an outwear. What a wonderful show.
