Did you guys come to Indonesia Fashion Week this 20-23 February (2014)? How was it?
Indeed, IFW is like a pool of inspirations. I was bemused by magnificent works every time I moved my feet from one side to another. The Exhibition hall was fulfilled by numerous infamous designers such as Anne Avantie, Sebastian Gunawan (Votum), Deden Siswanto, Musa Widyatmodjo, and too much more! The fun part was some of these top designers offered us their ready-to-wear collection with special price. I also noticed (by means: visited, then shopped) other innumerable well-known and new designers. I could not help myself but wrapping some of the beauties home!
Well I wish you also have the fantastic opportunity like mine. Because words are definitely not enough to tell you how wonderful was my time there. If you have not had the chance, I hope you guys will not miss next year's IFW event! It is really worth the price (I got the invitation for free but in case you did not have one, visitors only asked to pay 20,000 IDR to visit the exhibition!) and worth the one-hour-jam-to-find-a-parking-lot.
Well well.. since words could not express my overwhelmed wonder, here I show you a few pictures I took during my short visit there.

|I just got stunned by Priyo Oktaviano|
Beside wandering and got lost inside the exhibition hall, I also got the chance to watch some fashion shows (yaay!). Ultimately, there is one show that amused me most; it is HERO by Priyo Oktaviano. His concept is a.ma.zing! Indeed. I was speechless since the prelude and jaw-dropped during the whole show, like literally. I fell for the excruciating detail on each apparel and fell harder for the little "drama" on the runway.
Priyo Oktaviano is definitely a concept genius. He created several sub-concepts under the hero big-concept, how twisting is that? Well I vaguely interpreted that
superman wonderwoman and Cleopatra were sharing the same stage -or this might be my own illusion since I was totally stunned during the whole show. Obviously he nailed that wow-factor every time the concept switched.
