AMICA Fashion Festival

As one of the greatest entertainment destination in Surabaya, Grand City Mall celebrated its second birthday last week and collaborated with a local fashion magazine, Amica, to do a fashion festival. The four days event was filled with a number of make up demos and fashion show by both local and international designers.

The fashion festival was open for public, but with a little connection, I got to sit front row with my friends on the third day. There was LT Pro make up demo, Roxy, Alleira Batik, and Caroline Kosasih. Seems like fortuna was in favor of me, I won the lucky door prize at the end of the show! Super lucky!

Since I got the official invitation for the closing ceremony by (X)S.M.L, my friends and I attended the show. Then somehow the event organizer led my friends and I to a seat right next to Amica's editor in chief, Miranti M. Lemy, and Grand City's CEO, Sim Tang Wang! We had sushi, wine, and great sets of collections by Marks&Spencer and (X)S.M.L. Overall, it was a great night.

Thanks to (X)S.M.L, Amica, Grand City, Ivana Novelin, and my friends who accompanied me! Cheers!

Essence de L'audace

Essence de L'audace simply means the essence of being bold. Seven young designers who had just graduated from La Salle College Surabaya were pushed to their limit to present bold and out-of-the-box designs in all themes, crossing boundaries. From rodeo, kids, futuristic, to wedding.

Some works were on display in mannequins right in front of the entrance gate, together with some photographs and booths.

The young and talented designers were also given the chance to display their own designs in the themes they personally chose. My friends and I were fans of Gabriel Soegiyono's creations. He rose the theme of Spanish beauty which was stunning and the composure of every aspect in his show was very balanced.

The others rose the theme of architectures, Japanese kimono, skulls, and many more.

All fun and joy credits to my beloved friends : Lukas, Jochris, Feli, Ken, Kezia, Lauretha. Thanks to them, watching this show was such an unforgettable experience.
