Four fashion designers will showcase their collections at a wedding exhibition in South Jakarta, which also features wedding decorators and other related businesses.

Six hand-painted dresses by prominent Indonesian designer Billy Tjong are set to be displayed. They are part of a collection of 18 dresses with the theme “Secret Garden” that will be showcased at the event on Sept. 4.

“They will be dominated by a brownish-gold color,” Billy, who is also a professional photographer, said on Tuesday, adding that he would hand-paint the dresses himself.

Previously, Billy enjoyed quite a success when he launched black-and-white dresses using the same technique. “Hopefully this collection will be well-received by the public.”

Other designers showcasing their collections at the event are Ivan Gunawan, Jeanny Ang and the young and talented designer Kimberly Tandra. Each of them brings a different theme to their work.

Inspired by Bollywood movie Bajirao Mastani ( 2015 ), a group of 15 dresses by Ivan Gunawan is called Ahisma. “Most of them will be in gold and have more lace; they will also fit the body,” said Ivan, whose showcase will be on Sept. 2.

Meanwhile, designer Jeanny Ang will adopt “Pure” as her theme. With 10 dresses in the show, she will use shades inspired by pearls. “[The pearl] will consist of different colors, such as dusty pink, light gold, broken white and pastel,” she said, adding that the highlight of her showcase on Sept. 3 would be her ball gown designs.

On the same day, Kimberly Tandra will exhibit 20 garments in the Atmospharia collection, which is inspired by the sky. She describes them as modern, luxurious wedding gowns with blue as the major color. “For the detail, I use leather birds instead of lace,” she said.

The wedding exhibition is currently being held at the Ritz-Carlton Jakarta in Mega Kuningan. Slated to run until Sept. 4, it hosts 51 local vendors and showcases famous local designers. The vendors include wedding decorators and businesses offering invitations, jewelry, wedding cars and wedding cake.Read more at:plus size formal dresses

I have made many fashion blunders: Karisma Kapoor

Actress Karisma Kapoor says she made major fashion bloopers during her initial days in the film industry.

The 42-year-old actress, who entered Bollywood at the young age of seventeen, said with time her fashion sense has evolved and people praise her for it.

“I have made many fashion blunders. I was so young when I joined films. It was like I was just out of school and on the film set. We didn’t know much. But as I have grown up in the industry, my fashion sense has evolved. And I feel I do have a distinct sense of style and I am glad that people like my style,” Karisma told PTI.

The “Zubeidaa” star said actresses of this generation have it easy as they have a whole team working on their looks.

“When I started which is like years ago we never had the facility to have such good stylists, such great make-up artists, now there is an entire team behind the actresses.

“I think its way easier for today’s generation of actresses to look good. We just had to wear what directors or producers said in those days,” she added.

The actress loves being classic when it comes to her personal style sense.

“My fashion sense is just about me being me. I like the sophisticated and classic styles and looks and I have always stuck to that. I think that is what I am and it reflects through me,” she said on the sidelines of Lakme Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2016.

Karisma, whose last big screen outing was 2012 film “Dangerous Ishq,”, has not signed any new projects as she wants to give time to her kids.

“For me, family comes first and kids are most important. I do keep myself busy with lots of endorsements and events,” she said.Read more at:one shoulder formal dresses

Misha Nonoo Opts for a Snapchat-Only Show

With New York Fashion Week soon approaching (September 8), we’re ready for the onslaught of designer shifts that accompany it. Misha Nonoo is already ahead of the crowd. After staging an “Insta-show” on Instagram last year, she’s skipping the runway format once more in favor of a Snapchat presentation, according to Business of Fashion(BoF). But wait, there’s more: The designer is ditching her wholesale business and selling directly to consumers via her website, mishanonoo.

“This new model allows me to continue to leverage technology and innovation to interact with my customer directly,” Nonoo said in a statement. “We can now better meet our customer’s wardrobe needs wherever she is, and continue to dress her for every intention.”

The switch from wholesale is a major move, one that other designers may soon follow. There’s been grumbling in recent years (and it’s growing louder) that the current fashion calendar makes no sense. The timeline to show the clothes and get them in store is months long, and consumers want instant gratification (sometimes via knockoffs if they’re available sooner).

Famed style critic Suzy Menkes likened the fashion schedule—usually two ready-to-wear collections a year, plus haute couture, menswear, resort, and pre-fall—to a “fashion treadmill,” back in 2013. She argued that the schedule was the reason so many designers were burning out. "If we accept that the pace of fashion today was part of the problem behind the decline of John Galliano, the demise of Alexander McQueen and the cause of other well-known rehab cleanups, nonstop shows seem a high price to pay for the endless 'newness' demanded of fashion now,” she wrote in T Magazine.

She’s not the only one who’s questioning the calendar. Public School designers, Dao-Yi Chow and Maxwell Osborne, decided to ditch traditional shows. Instead of adhering to the standard schedule, the duo decided to do two shows a year—one in December and one in June—that combine men’s and women’s collections.

Burberry has already shifted to a direct-to-consumer model. Even Diane von Furstenberg, head of the CFDA, noted to British Vogue, "We have designers, retailers and everybody complaining about the shows. Everything needs to be rebooted."

All of this means Misha Nonoo is moving in the right direction, and we expect even more designers to follow her lead. Like Public School, she’s combining the seasonal collections, offering up to three a year: Fashion Essentials, Fashion Specialty, and Evergreen Essentials (the latter will be offered year-round). And unlike her last show, which allowed consumers to preorder an item, they can now buy it instantly. Snapchat, she said to BoF, “is more raw and real life. The thing to expect is new uses of native Snapchat functions. It’s experimental, ephemeral, and speaks to this girl where she is.”

The fashion world is changing, and in the end, we’ll all likely benefit from it.Read more at:formal dresses online australia
