Jakarta Fashion Week: Rebecca Ing & Jazz Pasey

Jakarta Fashion Week kicked off yesterday and will be featuring the collections of such celebrated designers as Stefanus Hamy, Taruna Kusmayadi, Valentino Napitupulu, Defrico Audy, Chossy Latu, Hengki Kawilarang, Rusli Tjohnardi, Harry Ibrahim, Syahreza Muslim, Jeanny Ang, Poppy Dharsono and Priyo Oktaviano as well as new rising stars in the design world. The shows reflect themed sessions including Muslim wear, ethnic, evening, cocktail, modern, temporary and classic styles. Tanudi Kusmayadi, the chairman of the Indonesian Fashion Designers Association, insists that there is one thing that sets the clothing featured at JFW apart from those seen anywhere else in the world. “What differentiates our designers from others are the designs initiated from our culture and our east-meets-west environment. We reflect a wide range of our own cultures without reference to international fashion, although we still follow some international practices such as the treatment of materials." Don't believe him? Let's take a look at some examples of the designs featured at day one for ourselves including Rebecca Ing (whose Marchesa-esquq designs are positively stunning), and Jazz Pasey, whose more earthy look is simply sublime.
