It's an honor to be able to collaborate with Jakarta Fashion Week 2019 as one of their official bloggers. Besides getting some special ticket invitations, I hope that through this I can inspire many people out there. Like a story that I experienced, it turns out there are still Indonesians youths who don't (or haven't yet) want to use batik because it's considered as an old-fashioned thing. Batik as one of the Nusantara's heritage deserves to be the pride of the Indonesian people. I wonder why there are people who don't like batik, well I know this is a matter of taste, but batik is very beautiful in my eyes. Like these batik collections designed by one of my favorite designers, Anne Avantie. She is so aware of how to juggle batik not only as a body wrap, but as an identity and jewelry for people who wear it.

In the last Jakarta Fashion Week 2019, Anne Avantie again showcased her fashion designs. Carrying out the theme "Badai Pasti Berlalu", Anne Avantie wanted to convey a message to the Indonesian people, specifically citizens of Palu, Donggala and Lombok who had recently been victims of natural disasters, that everyone has a grief, but it must pass. Amazingly, in addition of her fashion showcase, to express her empathy for Palu, Donggala and Lombok, Anne Avantie together with PT Sido Muncul also donated 10 fishing boats to victims of natural disasters in Palu, Donggala and Lombok. 

She is not Anne Avantie, if she does not convey a moral message in each of her shows. As in every post on her Instagram, she will provide motivation to Indonesian women. Wow, she's really inspiring. That's why I love her so much.

Bringing out woven fabric as the main material, Anne Avantie gave magical touches from her cold hands. It became clothes that are light-looked, fashionable, and beautiful. The woven is conjured up into long pants, scarves, outwear, and top-wear. In addition, woven fabrics are combined with Indonesian brocade kebaya. As in the picture below:

Why woven fabric? There was a special meaning to be conveyed by Anne Avantie. Still related to the theme "Badai Pasti Berlalu", the meaning she wanted to convey was a continuity of performance of the weaving craftsmen needed so that this woven fabric could be created. In that way, the craftsmen can support to live their families. So, again a message that we must go through all obstacles to continue the next stage of life.

Anne Avantie's stage performance at the Jakarta Fashion Week 2019 was so amazing! Anne Avantie showcased 50 of her clothes and hooked up a number of public figures who were much favored by many people. One of them is Patricia Gouw, my favorite ya! Haha. That’s why I chose the photo cover of this post.

Other public figures are Maia Estianty, Artika Sari Devi, Rayi RAN, Marion Jola, Surya Saputra, Tantri KOTAK, Kimmy Jayanti, and Titi Rajo Bintang. And do not miss this person everyone, she's the most favorite of Indonesian people, the Ministers of Marine and Fisheries who was also always filled the Anne Avantie' stage, Ibu Susi Pudjiastuti.

Ibu Susi Pudjiastuti, came out at the final session of the show using a long coat of woven fabrics, black heels boots, sunglasses, big round earrings, and hair scarves from woven fabrics. A warm welcome came out as Ibu Susi stepped into the # JFW2019 catwalk, including Kahiyang Putri, Daughter of the President of the Republic of Indonesia, Joko Widodo. Ibu Susi's eccentric style made her look like much younger. Almost all cameras are fixed on her, 'Semua Mata Tertuju Padamu', she’s the real Miss Indonesia! : D

What do you think about Anne Avantie's batik collections guys? Me, LOVE it so much! Indonesian Batik is one of the fashionable everlasting fabric. It can be combined with many fashion items that we have at home. The results are always fantastic. Batik for me is not only a fabric to wrap your body but a precious cultural heritage that we need to preserve.

So please, love batik!
