Hello people, I just wanna say thank you for voting me for Galerieslafayette Jakarta in "RED IN BLACK" outfit. You really helped me a lot, since i don't know i will be the top 10 favorites or not =). There are so many things to do since i'm going to graduate soon in April; prepare some garments, hair pieces, shoes and my presentation.

By the way, I had an event last week sponsored by Djarum Super and wardrobes by me and my friends. It was such a good experience! =) i'll share it with you guys later.

Photos taken by me

On the first day, i watched "STYLOPEDIA" fashion show by 35 designers. All the collections based on Indonesia's culture like Batik, Kebaya, etc. I think the show took so long. I really wanted to watch "MALOLO a journey to Mandar" by Ivan Gunawan after STYLOPEDIA show, but i had to go to Brightspot Market with my friends. So, what do you think about the show? Which collection do you like?

Don't forget to VOTE me "RED IN BLACK" by GaleriesLafayette Jakarta to be the top 10 favorites until 28 February.

Anyone go to IFW? I came to JCC at the first day to get my blogger pass at 9am and I though I came too early so I took so many pictures there. I came with my mom, friends and some of them are bloggers too (Cathy, Ellen).

It's not kawaii? I love the collections from Glad New. It's the Japanese brand and full of studded especially for this shoes. We can take photos while wearing the outfit from Glad New collections. So, My friends from Apron and Crème and I tried this shoes. The EO from Glad New interviewed us and asked us about what we though about the collections, which one the outfit, bag and shoes we loved, etc. What do you think? Which one do you like the most?

As you can see, you'll see Batik everywhere with modern touch and you'll see so many kinds of Batiks from all the provinces in Indonesia.
