Indonesia Fashion Week coverage 2014

Tradition vs modernity: Indonesia’s big question

Indonesia fashion week just crossed the finish line of its inaugural event. A government-driven push to put Indonesia on the fashion map, it’s an event underpinned by the need to balance the county’s proud heritage with its ever-burgeoning modernity. So how are Indonesia’s designers, and the event itself, taking on that task? Read on as we take a look.

Stellarissa: clothes for the confident

Stellarissa’s collection at Indonesia fashion week had sex appeal written all over it. But, as was the designer’s own intention, it was “sexy not trashy”; infused with tuxedo elements and masculine details that gave it a mildly androgynous bent but that never took away from its reigning femininity. Rissa’s tuxedo palette of black and white might have been quite understated were it not for pops…

Lenny Agustin: where tradition and pop collide

Designer Lenny Agustin is herself quirky and colourful; so much an embodiment of her own brand that she’s the perfect ambassador for it. Her second line, Lennor by Lenny Agustin, showed first at Indonesia fashion week; a near psychedelic rainbow of youthful colour that literally spanned head to toe (bright headscarves at one end and striped socks under bold wedges at the other). Her main…

Ghea’s China dolls backstage

Often the details of a collection that steal your heart are the details that get lost from afar. Two designers at Indonesia fashion week that had me at their intricacies were  Deden Siswanto and Ghea, whose garments up close were far more impressive than any runway photos can do credit to. Backstage before the show, those loving details were far more easily appreciated, from the…

Off duty romper

A model backstage at Indonesia fashion week, Jakarta, gets into the spirit of things with a backless romper purchased in Bali. The China-doll makeup from the evening’s final show adds a softness to an otherwise casual and beachy off-duty look.

Yosafat Dwi Kurniawan’s soft details

If there’s one thing Indonesia fashion week is in no shortage of, it’s bling. But Yosafat Dwi Kurniawan, showing his collection on Day 2 of IFW, applied it with a fresh subtlty. A sheer blouse gemmed with silver opened the show, tucked into a beige tailored skirt. Later, the same embelishment found its way onto a sheer skirt peeking out from beneath a leather bodice,…

Nikicio’s chilled youth at IFW

From Doc Martened feet upwards, NikiCio’s collection at Indonesia fashion week was all about cool boyfriend dressing. Slouchy parkas with rolled-up sleeves, backpacks slung casually over shoulders, relaxed tailoring; this was all the stuff that youth is made of. The winning outfit was the first, though: an androgynously tailored look of cropped skinny pants and a blazer kept bare underneath.

Backstage in Jakarta, day 2

Backstage at Indonesia fashion week in a small rabbit’s warren of rooms and corridors, there’s a different process going on to what takes place at many other fashion shows. Here, designers are shown on the runway in groups, meaning that the backstage area is a malange of hair and beauty looks all being applied at once. A peek behind the scenes on day 2 shows…

Walking on air at Indonesia Fashion Week

The rainbow of kaleidescopic colour brought to Indonesia Fashion Week by Lenny Agustin for her Lennor line wouldn’t have been complete without the equally bold and bright footwear. Despite the cutaway wedges that left models walking partly on air, there were no stumbles – or tumbles – at yesterday’s show.
