Bobo Fair

When I went to Jakarta Islamic Fashion Week 2013 on Sunday at JCC Senayan, my Hubby and daughter go along with me. There was Bobo Fair event held at the same venue so Mama could see the fashion show and Bebe had fun at Bobo fair with Papa.

There are bazaar, playgrounds, and musical show of Oki and Nirmala, two of the characters we know from Bobo kids magazine. There were many characters we know at Bobo fair, it's just too bad that Bebe loved to see them but too scared to go near and took some pictures with them. But she loves the big puzzle game ad the ballet-dancing birds in the Oki and Nirmala Musical. Mama recorded it on video and she watches it over and over again :D.

Bebe was at Bobo Fair with Papa most of the time, and Papa said they had fun though she asked where I was most of the time. Thank you Hubby for being such a wonderful husband and father :3.

Here are some photos we took at the Bobo Fair,

From Jakarta Islamic Fashion Week 2013 (Part 2): Mix and Match Outfit for Work

Assalaamualaikum,
Hello! Today I want to share the second part of stories from JIFW 2013. I attended a talk show about how to mix and match your outfit for work, especially for women wearing hijab.

The talk show was hosted by Evelyn, the Fashion Editor of CHIC magazine. The guests are Aju Isni Karim of Trimoda Up2Date and Fetik, the designer of Fattibile, a brand specialized on working apparel under Trimoda Up2Date management.

Fetik of Fattibile, Ayu Isni Karim of Trimoda Up2Date, and Evelyn of CHIC Magazine.

According to Fetik, there are 5 must-have items for working women with hijab. They are shirt, jacket, coat, long coat, and skirt. These items can be combined with each other depending on the occasion and the working environment that you are working in. Fetik show us how to mix and match the outfit for working women with hijab.


How to mix and match your outfit.
The first picture is the basic long shirt and pants. You can wear them if you're working at the office. If you need a more stylish look to see the clients, you can add a long vest. This long vest actually have a drapery on the back but I didn't show the photo here. And if you need to go travelling while working, you can try on the third way: add a long coat. On the third picture you can also see the simple hijab worn by the model. Just tie your veil, make a circle with it and tuck it to the back of your neck.

Here are the ideas for you (and me, of course) to mix and match our outfits. It's pretty simple isn't it?

Isni said that basically, we can wear any kind of colors and items, but we have to adapt it with the company. "Can we wear green to work? Yes, definitely. But some companies are so formal and they want the workers to dress up formally like bankers. So, maybe you need to pick olive green. But if you're working in a more creative companies, maybe you can wear banana leaf green."



Not only the mix and match of outfits that I recorded that day, but I note some words of Isni. Isni said that Indonesia is a country with the largest muslim community in the world. Currently we have the eyes of the world on us because we have the hijab fashion trends that is so happening right now in our country. And the muslim women absorb these trends so fast and make the business continue growing.

When she started Up2Date, she has two friends go along. Isni with the media background, Tia with business background, and Irna with designer background. Because of the various backgrounds of the founders, their path in finding the market  was so much  easier.  

Isni adores the bloggers who shared their taste in fashion to their readers and getting feedback from them. "Thse bloggers are creating the market, and if they are willing to start a fashion business, they already have the market," she said. Hey that's a good news for you, bloggers! :D

Well, that's the second part of the news I have from Jakarta Indonesia Fashion Week 2013 guys. I'll see you in the next post yah :).

From Jakarta Islamic Fashion Week 2013 (Part 1): The Wonderful Traditional Prints!

Assalaamualaikum, 
Hi guys, how are you doing? Well, yesterday I went to Jakarta Islamic Fashion Week (JIFW) 2013. I watched a fashion show and attended a talk show, but I think I will share them in two posts - thanks to Kumpulan Emak-Emak Blogger (KEB) I had a press and photographer access :D. So now,  let's focus on the first part: the fashion show! :D

The fashion show was brought by three designers: Susie Hedijanto, Syahreza Muslim, and Rumah Ayu (featuring Kami Idea and fitRosa). The designers presented their collections to welcome the month of Ramadhan and the Eid al-Fitr day and each shows how wonderful the Indonesian traditional prints and fabrics are. 

Susie Hedijanto

Susie Hedijanto's collections was entitled: The Nature of Celebes. The collections itself was inspired by the Makassar's traditional print, and you can see those beautiful prints were mixed in colourful natural pallets: gold with bright green, yellow with green, pink with green, red with green and brown, orange and blue too. Most of the pieces are traditional kebayas, long dresses and veils.


One of my favorite shots along the fashion show :).

Syahreza Muslim


Syahreza Muslim's collections was entitled: The Magnificence of Sasirangan. Sasirangan is a traditional fabric from South Kalimantan and it is a big theme of the collections.


Well, those bright solid colors of the fabrics are magnificent indeed. I mean, I'm not a big fan of prints, especially not the colorful one. Most of my clothes are in basic, soft, colors. But I think those outfits really good when they are put together. And I like the draperies in many of the pieces too.

Look at those bright playful prints!


Rumah Ayu (featuring Kami Idea and fitRosa)

Kami Idea presented the collections entitled Hourglass Epilogue to represent the Eid al-Fitri as the day when all of us become pure again. These ready-to-wear pieces had batik as accents because the designers want them to use batik but in a fun-modern way. We can see the ethnic accents but suitable for everyday wear because they have modern and edgy cuts.

From the same fashion house, fitRosa brought us the INTRO collections. There are the touches of brocades and in many colors of broken white and navy blue. We can see romantic flares in its pieces of flare pants, tunics, vests and skirts.

Well, the fashion show is like opened my eyes about the traditional prints we have beside batik. The patterns we have are wonderful and the colors are rich. Those are the ideas for you (and me) for the Eid day, girls. How do you like it?

Before I went home that day I snap something at the venue. Here it is,
