Sebastian Gunawan, JF3






As the opening of various events of "The Glorious Handwoven of Indonesia" parade, Seabastian Gunawan (Seba) teamed up with Cita Tenun Indonesia (CTI) fully supported by the PT. Perusahan Gas Negara (Persero) Tbk. presented his collection that combined three seasons; winter, fall, and autumn. With handwoven as the main fabric and ikat from the craftsmen in PGN Handwoven Village, Panawuan Village, Garut, Indonesia.

I like to pay attention on how the designers want to make their fingerprints on their clothes; therefore if someone spot their clothes they will directly know who the designer is.
Seba, brought a very elegant collection to the runway (as always). His collection is always feminine, and sexy. It's sexy in a way that is sophisticated; cut out in the right places, sheer fabrics, and he likes to put belt or accent around the waist. This is to make the women who wears his clothes shaped in an hour glass curve, and who doesn't want that? Plus an illusion of a nice back shape. Love it!
The details on his collection is extraordinaire; the beads, and the materials that creates textures, the slit on the skirt, even the length of the dresses is precise and just on point. 
See how details on styling or designing can make such a big different. And how it can make Indonesian woven look waaaaay more attractive, and appealing.

Talking about styling, Seba mix and match the textures, colors, and fabrics to bring out more character of the handwoven fabric. The lack of appreciation, and attention to the Indonesian heritage made Seba wants to attract the people's attention by making his collection more contemporary and more 21st century. Thus, it will capturmore teenagers and young adults to wear clothes that is produce from Indonesian fabric and material by Indonesian designer.

The One with Denim and Dungarees


The Overalls or the Dungarees are making their comeback this summer, and because of its versatility which anyone can style them basically with anything. Anything. I believe Dungarees can last for more than one season, it's proven that it stays more than a year! 


DENIM - this year's biggest trend if I may say, is any form of denim has been worn by us vest, skirt, dress, pants, shirts, even bikinis or bras. I swore if there's one thing that is so flexible to style, decorate, accessorize, and even... destroy, it's denim! so if you don't own at least one, you may want to buy one. like. NOW. I myself own, uhm 6 denim skirts, and few dresses, couple of shirts, more or less 10 jackets or outerwear, and 35 jeans. Not much but I can create tons of style with it.



So I could make my dream come true by going to New York with Fimelahood

The One with Attitude, Risk, and Personality


This is the sheer top that we've seen people wearing for shorts, or skirts, and even dresses. It's risky. So make sure that your underwear or the inside of it is comfortable and won't be loose or go down easily because believe you me, if it happens, it may be the day of your fashion disaster (I've experienced it and it wasn't flattering at all).
 

I've seen a lot of this kind of shirt and I'm luuuuuuuuuuvin' it. GEEK, DORK, USA, FUCK, CELINE, YSL, YOLO, AIN'T NO WIFEY, YOU CAN'T SIT WITH US, 86, 69 (HAHA) and other numbers and words on it. It's cute, interesting, and in your face. Which is cool because it's somehow... rebel and I like it. It's like you're showing your personality or attitude, both at the same time; humorist, sarcastic, fun, and even your emotion at that time. And isn't it what you want to achieve when you're dressing up, to show your true self? You can also style it innocently, so while you're wearing the super in your face shirt you wear it with girly skirt, or feminine heels that make the shirt doesn't seem too aggressive. It's like your alter ego. Love it love it love it.

The One With More Than One Trend


Turtle neckssssssss are my favorite. It my seem super old fashioned but they're super comfortable and I find them very flattering. From crop top turtle necks, sleeveless, or not sleeveless to long sleeves turtle necks. I think as long as it fits you perfectly; not too tight but not that loose either, you can totally rock it! 




Checked and tartans are also big trends, I love it! skirt, pants, dress, shirts, any kind of form. It's so easy to style them! tie'em around your waist, wear it as a suit like my friend did and she look super dapper! layer it like a lot of people does for a more casual look or even make it sexy; just button down your tartan shirt until below your chest and tie them, voila! super beachy look for summer! And you can also go Preppy like what Rachel always does.

The checked, the checked, the checked they are fab! I, personally, fancy the whole collection as we've seen in Louis Vuitton fashion show S/S 2013


Not a big fan of this trend, but floral or rather "tropical" prints are everywhere, I mean, on your pants, tops, skirts, outerwear, bags, mostly anything that can be printed with it. If you wanna go for a girly look, floral/tropical prints is the way! But, I do have my favorite floral shirt, it was from Cacharel

Talking about prints though, they're a BIG hit this season. Animal prints, Floral, Tropical, Bold Digital, and even Hyperrealist Aesthetic like what Mary Katrantzou S/S13 collections. They are the bomb. Everyone wants a piece of this trend. Katrantzou is like the Salvadore Dali of fashion design, the prints are surreal.



But Givenchy with their prints are the one that people hunt for! My favorite singers like Kanye, JayZ, and Rihanna wore them. Including Kim Kardashian who pairs them with leather pants.
 


Indonesian designer, alex[a]lexa whom I blogged few months ago HERE. Also making prints a must have item. This dress in particular is very original. The owner (if I'm not mistaken), whom I met on that day during IFW told me that they went to a beach in Indonesia took this picture of the clouds and inspired by it so they edit it and print it on the dress. How lovely, I absolutely think that this is one of the amazing pieces from their equally amazing collection.

STYLE EDITION



In honor of campaigning NYFW with FIMELAHOOD I'm going to give you 7 style/trend edition of my all time favorite TV Show.


6 friends living in New York City loft (the dream, my dream). They’re figuring out life, love, money, career, dreams, family, but most importantly their F.R.I.E.N.D.S.H.I.P together. By now, you must already know what I’m going to talk about…
                                   
The funniest tv series of all time, F.R.I.E.N.D.S!
I’m watching it right this second. (Pardon me; but I’m on holiday and lying on my bed being lazy having dvd marathon sounds really good)
I’ve been inspired by the whole silver lining and life quotes in it! And also drooling over the fashion and clothes that Monica, Phoebe and Rachel are wearing…
How could I not? It’s vintage, the kind of vintage that I like, the one that will be seen on runways over time again and again it will never be out of trend. Even if it is it will come back before you even know it.

I really want to grab them all and I can already see myself styling them with hellbounds boots, knee high socks, crop tee, turtle necks shirts (which I’ve been obsessing over) and super edgy cute accessories and statement necklaces! Oooooh! And leather, gotta love leather!

Personal style: Classic with an edgy twist.

Tumbuh besar bersama Ibu saya yang juga appreciate fashion, influence style saya menjadi classic karena Ibu saya sangat menyukai Audrey Hepburn. Mengapa edgy, dikarenakan edgy selalu mempunyai sifat young dan powerful. Saya juga tidak bisa keluar rumah tanpa accessories karena menurut saya accessories bisa personalized the look jadi ciri khas orang masing masing.

Difoto ini saya memakai leather skirt dan accessories yang edgy styled with velvet top dan coat classic yang menjadi luaran. Heels juga membuat seorang wanita terlihat lebih powerful. Dan aksen broken white pada heels membuat the whole look terlihat lebih soft.

Fashion adalah bagian terbesar dalam hidup saya, karena saya sangat passionate about fashion.
Impian saya adalah untuk tinggal di one of the biggest fashion capital in the world yaitu New York. Lalu saya bisa pursue my career, membanggakan orang tua dan nama bangsa di kiprah international in the fashion industry.

Saya orang yang bekerja keras, tidak gampang menyerah, dan saya yakin pada mimpi mimpi saya.
Untuk bisa pergi ke fashion week di New York it would be a dream come true, itu juga akan menjadi motivasi dan membuat saya lebih semangat lagi untuk menggapai cita cita dan mimpi mimpi saya di dunia fashion.

I would be the happiest girl kalo kamu bisa vote! Thank you banget ya :)
