I am so in love with the details and embellishment on the dresses, they seem to give a "life" to the dresses and the abstract compositions are perfect. And the patterns on the bottom of the dresses seem to be painted which are so beautiful! I also love the additional mask and hat which complete the sophisticated look!

I love how these dresses are in different colors but when you see them altogether, you know that they are one collection and they speak one harmony. I truly adore how the dresses flow when they are used, very pretty and lady-like! And those ombre dresses are that one thing you need to eye on. I think APPMI members are really good in beautifying dresses with perfect details!

I am in love with sheer skirt and it reminds me of the enchanting Paris. I think the designer manages to bring Black to a whole new level as instead of looking gothic, those dresses scream modesty and elegance, especially with the additional pure gloves which make it look more womanly.

When the first look came up, I understand that he also puts Indonesia elements onto his designs. I thoroughly respect his choice to pick Green as the main color because that is what Japan means to be - calming and soft. Those wooden wedges are supposed to replace those Japanese shoes right? And I looove that slit skirt on the last picture, in which the hand-sewed part reminds me of Japan's waves.

At first when I saw it, I saw a lot of complex yet beautiful layers in a very neat sewing and drapes. I give a thumbs up for the "3D" trimming and decorations because it looks as if it is real and not hand-sewed. And I would love to wear those pretty dresses, awe-inspired.

I think people who wear these dresses will look slimmer because of the vertical pattern, smart indeed! I really enjoy capturing the movement of the models because the dresses fly beautifully and as you can see, it does create an alluring shape! I genuinely love the details on top, shiny things look good.
