AN EVENING OF COUTURE
Once in awhile, we go full on glamour for a night out. The venue was Raffles Jakarta Ballroom and the event was to support Indonesian Couture designer, Tex Saverio, in his first grand couture fashion show. He did not disappoint.
For an evening of couture, I made sure to show up in couture. This beautifully hand beaded long dress is from Indonesian designer, Diana M. Putri. From the moment I saw her latest collection, this dress stood out to me with it’s exuberance of old Hollywood glamour! The exquisite detail plus the balance between sexy and elegance, romantic and dramatic, is definitely on point.
For the hair I wanted it to be simple and slicked back. This is one of my favourite hairstyles for that classic sophisticated look. It’s clean and so simple to achieve. For the makeup (by @brushedbytheresia) I aimed for a simple cat eye, a bit of mascara, and a dramatic lip with the deep purple.
Overall, it’s a bit on the dark side to what I mostly opt for, but it’s couture night… it’s all about experimenting and having fun!
