AN ODE TO JAKARTA FASHION WEEK
Be prepared, as the main fashion week in Indonesia is coming soon. Jakarta, are you ready to be rocked by the Korean storm once more?
Empty your schedule for one of the most awaited event by the darlings of Jakarta fashionistas, November 3 – 9, 2012. To celebrate the opening of this annually premiere fashion event in Indonesia, Lie Sang Bong, one of the top designers from Seoul, Korea will present his collections with Indonesian top designer, Sebastian Gunawan.
Originally from Korea, he’s quickly accepted as part of new generation of designers from Paris fashion scene since he moved there in 2002. Creatively combines the elegance of French Fashion with his Korean roots, his trademark is the architectural shape. Mostly ready to wear collections, Lie counts Lady Gaga and Rihanna as fans.
Let’s take a look at his Fall 2012 Collection, which shown on the last day of Paris Fashion Week earlier this year. Eclectic set of dresses, jackets, covered with polka dots from materials like feather, fur and leather. Above the models questionable make up on the runway, the whole collection represented the creative fusion of culture and art with his well known geometrical shapes.
Personally I can’t wait to see Lie’s collection for the opening of Jakarta Fashion Week 2013. Just a tiny sneak peek for his Spring 2013 collection which titled “Nostalgia”. It features retro elements and personal memories which incorporated with Lie’s avant garde style. See his sketch and some of his collection above.
Hopefully, I’ll be reporting live from the venue at JFW 2013. So, stay tune for more.
