This is my first post in 2012, so i'd like to say a late HAPPY NEW YEAR!
how's your NYE? Mine was like i wrote in the previous post, i didn't go anywhere because of the flu i had
And i was shock the very next day to hear such a loss of one Indonesian's talented designer, Adesagi Kierana, a man with a signature who passed away on January 1st 2012. RIP Adesagi Kierana, may you are now in a much more beautiful place and you will not be forgotton :')
I don't wanna start the first post with all sad things, so i think i'm going to change the subject and start 2012 with an outfit post of me wearing a friend's design
LOOKBOOK Jakarta, the community that me and a couple of my friends are building, has unexpectedly led me to many great new friends. Ever since the LOOKBOOK NIGHT, which was held as the first official gathering and the launching of our community, I have been introduced to talented people, including the designers who helped us by letting their creation be worn by us that evening. It was an honor for us to be presented on the runway, wearing Indonesia's upcoming designer's item, and it was a big honor to me personally, that i got to wear a very well-sewn shirt and trousers with a slice twist of batik as the perfect icing. The brand is called HANDGEMAAKT by Zico Halim
As much as i respect his work to preserves Indonesian culture into his designs, i'd like to share it here on my blog, so i asked him for a press release and the lookbook. Another unexpected thing happened when the designer, who has now turned into a good friend and co-worker *sometimes*, preferred to have the collection worn by me as the promotion material on my blog. Shortcutly after i said "yes", we hit a roof top and created my own HANDGEMAAKT lookbook. I wore five to six different looks, each was styled by me and Zico, and photographed by Zico himself
Lately i've been told a lot that i'm a blogger who have to post more outfit post to add fashion ambiance into my blog. Thanks to Zico and HANDGEMAAKT, now i have more stocks of outfit to post :)
Here i present you HANDGEMAAKT: ep. 01
Photographed by Zico / Styling by Zico and me
I really like this one. The unique hat adds a certain kind of quirky twist which i wasn't sure of but i really like how it has turned out to be. The HANDGEMAAKT ep. 02, 03 and so on are coming soon!!!!
Until the next malfunction box ! ! !
