It’s that time of the year again that I always look forward to here in Jakarta, it reminds me of first arriving in Jakarta and being overwhelmed by the city, but excited to attend Jakarta Fashion Week. When I landed in Jakarta in 2009, I knew nothing of this city, so I was super excited to find they had a Fashion Week here which was only in its second year then, and I have attended every year since.
This year it was held in Senayan City again and the place was buzzing with Jakarta’s fashionista’s as always. I was aiming to make it to see Tex Saverio, and anything else I may be able to see while Samudra was being babysat would be a bonus. I saw quite a few shows in the afternoon of the first day and met some lovely people in the pit, but rather than overwhelming this blog with hundreds of pictures as is usual after these events, I have decided to post only a few pics as summary rather than way too many individual photos.
I did see Tex Saverio in the end which I am so happy about, but I have to say, after seeing his mind blowing creations at JFW 2012, this year seemed tame in comparison, but beautiful at the same time.
Here is a summary from only some of the shows I attended on Day One..
