Then the second show started with Shafira Couture by designer Feny Mustafa. Her collection comes from her vision to feature Songket Silungkang, Indonesian heritage fabric, in the fashion world. Songket Silungkang combines with materials, such as chiffon, to make it look more balanced and not seem too heavy. Glamorous image also poured through a sprinkling of Swarovski crystals in several parts of clothing, as well as unique accessories with the concept of a “total look.”
The last show just blew me away! Anniesa Hasibuan with her "Sasikirana" collection features fine silk, velvet, brocade and other traditional Indonesian fabrics embellished with her signature touches of sequined stones and beautiful pearls. Hello Indonesia! Her collection is a very strong signature from her hometown. I feel like if I wear her designs, I would become a high hierarchy in Indonesia!
I hope this makes you feel like you were there and gives you insight into the beautiful details of the show. I think I am utterly addicted to couture. The beauty, the detail and craftsmanship that goes into every single piece is exquisite. The show completely changes my perspective on couture and I feel like next time I'll be at the front row!
