Jakarta Fashion Week 2013 - Day 6: APPMI Moslem Designers

WOOHOO the very first post in 2013! This is my first show of the APPMI (Asosiasi Perancang Pengusaha Mode Indonesia / Indonesian Fashion Designers Association). To make it short, it is where Indonesian designers from all ages united to show what Indonesian fashion got and they also support Indonesian designers to core. They are HUGE, so HUGE that you will see many of their shows on my blog later on from different designers! So enjoy this one first of all! ;)

A very fun collection to watch and snap; because of the twist of psychedelic colors on the clothes, statement and huge necklaces, and layers of clashing pattern! A joyful song comes along as the models started hitting the runway :-)

This is when hijab goes modern! I truly love the collection, when I heard what the song was, I felt like started to dance around (but considering that the press place was fully packed, I did not even think to move a step because then the people behind me would shout at me rofl). Anyways, I truly love that she combines the asymmetrical top with maxi skirt, the touch of gold accessories and embellishment really make the collection look luxurious and expensive. Good job!

While I was capturing the show, I thought of some Egyptian dancers dancing towards a King (does that even exist?), well yea I truly love this feminine collection by these two amazing guys. I mean those dresses may look simple at a glance but please look closer and see those beautiful details (OMG they are so nice I can cry!). I can see pearls, diamonds, silvers, beads, Art Nouveau folds, etc - very explicit details!

Who says that women who dressed in black are naughty? ;) Look at these beautifully made gowns, you are surely ready to attract attentions with them! And when you're in doubt, add gold to black :-)

I love how loud the collection can scream, those outerwears are a perfect statement piece to be worn, day or night ;) The prints are amazing as well, very Indonesian and it shows how reach out culture is!

I love it when neutral meets neon, as shown in this collection! Pretty asymmetric-pattern on the dresses with tribal outerwears to complete the whole look, unexpected harmony which turns out gorgeous and still feminine!

I think those dresses and shawls are very light and comfortable to be worn with chiffon kind of fabrics, the bag and straw hat completed the go-to-beach look! With the chosen fabric, I don't think you need to be worried of the hot weather in the beach, even with layering those lovely and pastel-colored apparels!
