Jakarta Fashion Week 2013: Threelogy

Runway Report

Since I'm not living in Jakarta, I haven't had a chance to watch Jakarta Fashion Week (JFW) on live.

Fortunately, we can always get the "runway reports" from other fashion media either online or offline, or via the event's official site.. :) And we can always find something inspiring and fresh coming up from the shows like this..

As for this year Jakarta Fashion Week, JFW 2013, one show that grabbed my attention was a show titled THREELOGY.

It was the show that showing off collections by three, young and talented Indonesian Muslimah Fashion designers: Ria Miranda, Restu Anggraini, and Noni Zakiah.. The collections were fabulous.

Ria Miranda with her feminine-romantic touch turned the stiff, garish-coloured, Minangkabau Songket textile into a softer look using faded-colours songket; while Restu Anggraini with her edgy street style rose up the Goyor saroong from Pemalang; and Noni Zakiah with her bold signature style showed up with the stand-out motif-ed, NTB (Nusa Tenggara Barat)'s tenun textile.

Here are my favorites from each of the collections:

Ria Miranda

Restu Anggraini

Noni Zakiah

Well, which one is your favorite? :)

DIY: Create a new hijab look - Pinch Style

What's New on Hijab Style..

Recently I saw a pretty polkadots-printed shawl in one of highstreet hijab stores. The shawl's material is spandex jersey with small dots print completed with a cloth-ring. I straightly thought that this is gonna be a unique hijab look..

And then in the next day, when I went to another highstreet hijab store, I saw this shawl, wrapped in a unique look, becoming a cover of newest Moshaict Magazine, 6th edition.. I right away started fell in love with that look..

The pretty ruffles the ring made give some extra volume to the wrap. Also, they either can give an asymmetric look to your hijab style, or, a turban look.

Eventhough I love it, I didn't rush into buying this kind of shawl/pashmina. I thought I could make this kind of shawl by myself. I could turn almost all of my 'already have' shawls or pashminas into this look, simply with just one single ring.

The ring can be made from a piece of cloth, a ribbon, or an elastic hair-ribbon or headband, or a braided-cloth, anything.. that you think can be shaped into a ring.

Or, simply put my elastic hair-ribbon or a jewel ring on to the shawl..

And this ring can easily be put 'off' or put 'onto' the shawl/pashmina.

Take a look at the pictures below.. It's super easy to make this kind of shawl by yourself with the pashmina/shawl you already have.

Another ring variation:

Belt/Buckle Ring

Pearls Ring

Below is one tutorial from that magazine showing off a hijab style using this Ring Shawl/Pashmina:

There are still lots of style you can create using this Ring Shawl/Pashmina...

And here is my DIY (do-it-yourself) project using a square scarf and a ring (literally).. ;)

What do you think of it?

So, have fun! Be creative! And stay fabulous, Lovelies!

Happy weekend! :)

Valentino's Modest Gowns for Spring 2013

Style Note

Looking through Valentino Ready-to-Wear collection for Spring 2013, was a delight as I love every pieces from the collection..

The first thing crossed my mind is that Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pier Paolo Piccioli's Valentino dresses, at a glance, look minimalists.. with the using of solid colors and the simple-sleek-structured cut, yet they really have a touch of elegance..

I Love the ruffle-balloon shaped at the upper arms, the modest shapes, the delicate fabrics, and the exquisite embroideries.. ;)

Here are some gorgeous 'covered-style' dresses from the collection:
