Jakarta Fashion Week 2011

I love Jakarta Fashion Week … I’ve been going every years for the past 3 year. Sometimes get access to the backstage ( where I usually ends up drooling over the shoes). This year is a bit of a tragedy. I was supposed to attend the 6.30 PM show: The Body Shop presents "LIGHT UP MY LIFE" by Barli Asmara, but I missed it since I was stucked in 2 hour traffic. Here’s a thing about my beloved city Jakarta … the traffic jam is just somehow doubled up on rush hour Friday.

So yeah … I got there after the show is done. Just in time to meet the designer, apologize for being a no show, meet up with some friends, mingle, have dinner, gossiping and still go home with the fashion show goodie bag (yay!)

However ... I am still so inpired by this collections that they shown in the fashion tent ... beautiful ethnic fabric with vibrant colors.
