1. Apa Fashion itu untuk Oscar Daniel? // What is Fashion for Oscar Daniel?
* Fashion, menurut saya adalah kebebasan berekspresi untuk menjadi diri sendiri dengan cara yang kreatif bisa juga dengan mix and match, atau dengan bereksplorasi, mengadaptasi berbagai inspirasi hingga menjadi sesuatu yang baru dan layak ditampilkan atau dikonsumsi oleh orang lain, konsumsi dalam hal ini adalah orang lain suka melihat hasil kreasi kita, bahkan menjadikannya acuan atau trend, menurut saya fashion seperti itu.

* I think Fashion is a freedom of expression to be yourself in a creative way, which we can also mix and match, or to explore, adapt to a variety of inspirations into something new and worthy of display or consumed by someone else, in this case the consumption of other people like to see the results of our creations, even making a reference or trend, that what Fashion is for me.

 2. Apa yang membuat seorang Oscar Daniel tertarik pada dunia Fashion? // What makes Oscar Daniel interested in the Fashion World?

* Awalnya saya tertarik pada budaya tentang pernikahan dan tata caranya, oleh karena itu, saya menggeluti dunia makeup wedding terlebih dahulu, baru kemudian merambah ke dunia fashion dan headpiece. Yang sangat menarik perhatian saya adalah semua unsur kreatif dalam pernikahan dan hasil akhirnya yang selalu happy ending. Dan saya juga menemukan sesuatu yang menyenangkan mengkolaborasikan wedding yang sakral dengan dunia fashion yang penuh kejutan.
* I was initially interested in the culture of marriage and ordinances, therefore, I am in the world of wedding makeup first, then branching out into the fashion world and headpiece. What attracts my attention the most was all the creative elements in the wedding and the end result is always a happy ending. And I also found something fun to collaborate with the sacred wedding with fashion world that has a lot of surprises.
 
3. Sudah berapa lama menggeluti dunia Fashion? // How long have you been involve in the Fashion World?

* Sejak saya duduk di bangku kuliah tahun 2000, saya sudah membuat Wedding Organizer dengan teman saya, dari situ daya tertarik dengan dunia makeup, ( karena salah satu tugas WO adalah morning call, yaitu membangunkan calon mempelai wanita dan mengantarkannya untuk makeup di pagi hari), dari situ saya melihat proses before after yang sangat luar biasa, saya melihat sosok wanita polos tanpa makeup dan ia baru saja terbangun dari tidur terakhirnya sebagai gadis, yang kemudian setelah melalui proses  tata rias ia menjelma menjadi ratu sehari yang siap dipersunting oleh pujaan hatinya. Rona bahagia terpancar sepanjang hari meskipun lelah tak bisa dipungkiri. Waktu itu saya berpikir betapa ajaibnya memiliki bakat dan tangan yang bisa membuat seseorang begitu bahagia meskipun hanya sehari saja. Dan pada tahun 2004 akhir saya berkesempatan untuk belajar makeup secara Privat dengan salah seorang Makeup Artist, Adrian Suryapradipa, kemudian pada 2006 saya sudah mulai memberanikan diri untuk terjun menjadi makeup artist. Awal 2007 saya mengambil course di Giselle beauty academy, Singapore, mengingat client saya kebanyakan menyukai makeup Oriental. Pertengahan 2008, setelah menjadi finalis Gading Beauty Award, saya berkesempatan belajar makeup dengan senior makeup artist mas Sake, dengan mas Sake saya memperdalam teknik blending dan makeup koreksi. Bersamaan dengan itu. Saya juga sudah mulai memulai merilis wedding gown saya by order. Selama kurun waktu 2008 hingga saat ini saya juga sering mensponsori makeup dan hair do untuk berbagai event di Indonesia.
* Since I was in college in 2000, I made a Wedding Organizer (WO) with my friends, from there I build my interest in the makeup world, (because morning call is one of the tasks of a WO, to call the bride and accompany her for the makeup preparation in the morning), and that is when I see an extra ordinary before and after process, I saw the figure of an innocent woman without makeup and she had just awakened from her last day of being a bachelorette, and after going through the makeup process, she turned to be the Queen for the day and ready to be married with the love of her life. Happiness radiated through the day despite the undeniably tired feeling. At that time I think of how miraculous it is to have the talent and skillful hand that could make someone so happy even if it's only for a day. And at the end of 2004 I had the opportunity to learn makeup with one of the well-known Makeup Artist, Adrian Suryapradipa, then in 2006 I was getting the courage to plunge into makeup artist. In early 2007 I took a course in beauty Giselle academy, Singapore, given the client I mostly liked the makeup Oriental. Mid-2008, after being Gading Beauty Award finalist, I had the opportunity to study with senior makeup artist makeup Mas Sake, with him I went deep into blending techniques and makeup corrections. Along with it. I also have started to start releasing my wedding gown by order. During the period 2008 to the present I also often sponsor the makeup and hair do for a variety of events in Indonesia.

4. Siapa atau Apa inspirasi terbesar Oscar Daniel untuk Un Amore collection ini? // Who or What is the biggest inspiration for the Un Amore collection?

* Untuk sequence pertama (baju cocktail midi), fashion hat saya terinspirasi dari para sosialita yang menghadiri equestrian event di horse day, di Australia. Pada saat musim balapan kuda di Australia, para sosialita akan menghadiri acara oacuan kuda dengan berdandan menggunakan topi warna-warni dengan bentuk yang unik, karena akan diumumkan juga pemenang topi terbaik, jadi penampilan para sosialita ini pun menarik perhatian tersendiri.

Untuk sequence evening gown, kebaya, dan cheongsam, saya membuat headpieces berupa sirkam, tusuk konde dan beberapa topi modifikasi terinspirasi dari budaya barat, Indonesia dan Tionghoa yang saya modifikasi menjadi headpieces yang wearable, unik dan cantik. 

Untuk sequence wedding, merupakan perpaduan dari fashion hat, Sirkam, dan headpieces yang saya bikin dengan unik dan cantik tapi saya menggunakan material berupa lempengan bunga besi yang saya kombinasikan dengan mutiara dan kristal.

Headpiece untuk baju terakhir saya sebut "ave maria" merupakan representasi dan benang merah dari tema show "Un Amore" itu sendiri, karena mother Marry (bunda Maria) merupakan lambang cinta dan kasih yang suci. 

* For the first sequence (midi cocktail dress), my hat was inspired by the socialites who attended equestrian event, in Australia. At the time of the horse racing season in Australia, the socialites would attend the horserace with dresses using colorful hat with a unique shape, because there will be a winner of who is wearing the best hat, so the socialite's appearance drew the attention of its own.
For sequences evening gown, kebaya and cheongsam, I made headpieces form of comb, hairpin, and some modifications hats inspired by western culture, Indonesian and Chinese that I modified into a wearable headpieces, unique and beautiful.

For the wedding sequence, is a fusion of fashion hat, comb, and headpieces that I made with a unique and beautiful, in this collection I used interesting materials like iron plates which I combine with pearls and crystals.

For the last headpiece, I call "ave maria" is a representation and a common thread of theme show "Un Amore" itself, because mother Mary (Mother Mary) is a symbol of pure love and affection.
