Let's Talk Style

Fashion designers set the trends for what people would want to adorn themselves in. Indonesian fashion designers all add a certain style to their creations which leaves their audience coming back for more.

Friederich Herman is another Indonesian fashion designer that is no stranger to style and finesse. His outstanding tribute to fashion is classic with a mixture of an urban vibe with a hint of professionalism. Herman uses splashes of color down to the shoes which allows his designs to break away from being a predictable collection. In 2011, he was awarded the Gading Fashion Entrepreneurship Award for his budding talent in Indonesian fashion. The array of silk blouses, bold shoe colors, and classic sentiment that Friederich Herman uses is what gives his designs the striking attention that it deserves. He knows how to amaze the eye by letting loose and doing his magic by creating one astonishing design after the other.

Toton Januar is one of those designers who also doesn't believe in predictability. When viewing his designs, it is clear that he likes to experiment with color, different patterns, and shapes. The combinations that Januar cultivates is never a disappointment. His consistency with fabulous style shocks audiences as each model enters the runway with a look that can never be duplicated by anyone with the same authenticity.

Nur Zahra

All For Modesty

Nothing completes the perfect ensemble like a beautiful head garment. Gorgeous fabrics and a myriad of stylish colors for Moslem wear is what's taking on the world by storm. Who says modest apparel is boring? Certainly not these designers: Nur Zahra, Dian Pelangi, and Jenahara. Modesty with head-covering is what's a part of the Muslim world, and covering up with style is what goes on with these fashionable designers.

The use of organic fabrics gives Nur Zahra's designs a different artistic vibe. You'll feel a sense of wholesomeness as the models make their strides down the runway. Zahra's label, NurZahra, is for the environmentally conscious fit for the modern woman who wants to be stylish while remaining covered. "According to specialists from the Centre for Fashion Enterprise in London, who are the advisors of Indonesia Fashion Forward program, the designs of NurZahra, using organic materials which show natural colors, wholly match Southern European and Japanese consumers. It is the Moslem wear version of Emporio Armani and Max Mara ", says Diaz Parzada, Creative Director of Jakarta Fashion Week.

The word "royal" comes to mind when viewing the Jenahara Collection. These designs for 2014 are electric and leave you speechless. Every woman wants to feel sexy and, at the same time, well respected; if clothing can bring out such an emotion, Jenahara definitely rises to the occasion. She captures the heart of a woman that wants to stay covered while looking absolutely stunning doing so. This collection is so vivacious and dignified that each woman wearing any of the clothing will feel and look like a queen.

Effervescent, genuine, and endless colors describe Dian Pelangi. Her designs have released something extremely contagious--FABULOUS COLORS! Non-sop colors are one of the things that is immediate when viewing this magnificent collection. It is clear that Pelangi loves to defy the odds when it comes to women wearing modest apparel. Her goal is to "break the rule but still on the line", as said in a CNN TV Broadcast interview. She explained wearing the clothes from the heart. Dull and boring are not an option.
