Today’s Outfit: Meeting Dian Pelangi at IIFF 2012

I got the chance to cover the first day of Indonesia Islamic Fashion Fair (IFFF) 2012, from opening ceremony to fashion show backstage. We’re very excited to have participated in this particular event, especially to witness how IIFF gets bigger and bigger each year. This is the place and opportunity to explore Indonesian talents in the creative industry, especially in the fashion sector. And this event would be the core for something remarkable in muslim fashion roadmap.

Secondly, we’re also a media partner in this event. See how we fully support muslim fashion Industry to be the leader in its own country, and the world, someday :) We also get the chance to look over fashion show backstage.

So the highlight of my today’s outfit is this blue ‘kain melayu’. This is supposed to be used with ‘baju kurung’ top, like those east coast Sumatran traditional costume. I adore this kain melayu, especially for its plaid pattern and a gold emboss as lining. Well, if you wish to hunt something like this, Pekanbaru is the right place. They have many beautiful kain melayu (well, I don’t know if they we’re shipped from Malaysia, but we definitely have our own Melayu culture).

And using kain/sarong as everyday’s outfit, I was truly inspired from some fashion muse, such as Taruna Kusmayadi, Irna Mutiara and Diaz Parzada -Creative Director Femina Group-, as they wear it in almost every occasion.
