Street-styler Snaphots at Indo Fashion Week 2012 - Part 2

Hello and welcome back!

On previous post, we've promised to share with you guys the most interesting part on a fashion week report. Yes, it's time for the street-styler snapshots at IFW 2012. So, cut to the chase and here we go...!

We did some snap shots of the best dressed street-styler at the first day of IFW 2012, and we instantly captured that 'less is more' was the rule for almost everyone! And we're just couldn't agree more. Indeed, one other way to be stylish is to accentuate one or two of your bold pieces and simplify the rest. You can tone down your outfit with plain color and patternless pieces while wearing a star-struck shoes, or you could just put on your earthy color palette (such as green, grey, yellow, orange, and brown) to wear with your pop-eyed or bold piece of clothing. But, if you're a true 'head-to-toe bold styler', then you should go for it! You know, it's always nice to see such styler with unusual mix of patterns and colors, and get inspired by their original ideas. ;)

MLU at The Indonesian Fashion Week 2012 - Part 1 (Runway Report)

Hello guys!

This month has been a fashionable month indeed. While the Mercedez Benz Fashion Week ended last Thursday on 16th February, here in our country, the Indonesia Fashion Week (IFW) 2012 just arrive at day two by now. MLU The Blog definitely didn't missed out the event, as we strolling down the venue at Jakarta Convention Center yesterday, on 23rd February 2012. The enthusiasm of fashion really filled both of the air and each hall of the assembly building on that first day of IFW 2012. Our goal that day, was to snaps photo as many as we can of  fashionable people at the event, and also to report the runway shows by local designers on that particular day.

The result? We have tons of pictures to be shared to you guys! So we decided to sort the best photos we got and create two separate report-posts of this most prestigious fashion event in our country.

The Feminine Silhouettes
Opening the first show, Syrian designer who's also the President of F Couture, Omar Matini, lined his F. Collection on the runway with his signature sexy lines and glamour details. Right after the last models escorted the designer at the end of his collection, one of the best talented local designer, Jazz Pasai, steal the show with his gorgeous soft tropical color blends of foamy blue, pastel yellow, and broken white. Upon this far, both designers seemed to have similarities in highlighting the feminine silhouettes as such hip-fit cutting, open shoulder, and also low back details. Throughout the marathon of the Designer's Parade, those feminine outline on each models kept on coming. 

Another thing besides femininity, sheerness was also appear in almost every designer's collection on that show, which certainly creates a romantic and flirty moves on each dress. This sheer choices and its colorful play of each designer are definitely perfect for Indonesian market and its tropical weather. Some favourites included the hemmed sheer off-white dress and Kebaya inspired dress with gold pattern sheer by the ingenious Indonesian designer, Marga Alam. A fussion of this sheer trend was also used by Zainal Songket in his traditional collection.

Detail in The Fabric
The diversity finally arrived at the detail on the fabric. Each designer experimenting artistic details by fabrics such as tulle, sequins, classic pearls and stone, and hand-crafted flowers and bows feature. Harry Ibrahim kicked off the the white runway with snow-white mermaid dresses with startling details that appear at the most unexpected feature of the dress. Another favourite were the stunning printed ruffled dresses by Jimmy Fei-Fei, and mixed patterns of sequins, hand-crafted floral ruffle accent on the hip, and sheer detail at the bottom by Geraldus Sugeng.

We will share you the snapshots of stylish people at the IFW 2012 on our next post. You know, save the best (part) for the last, right? ;) So, make sure you drop by again to MLU The Blog on early next week!

Behind The Scene of TLTSN Lookbook Photoshoot (and Career Opportunity!)

 Hello all! We're back!

This time, we're givving you VIP access to The Little Things She Needs' lookbook photoshoot behind the scene! Spring is just right around the corner, isn't it? Guess it's time for us to squirrel away our warm khaki pants, pale pink skirts, and burgundy sweaters, to change it with this year's Spring color palette: pastels!

Yes. It's the perfect time of the year to explore the colourful play of our outfits. You can go all pale with pastels mix, or just go vibrant and splashing with bright colors. You probably heard of this color trend as several designers already foretold the trend, such as DVF (Diane Von Furstenberg) on her Spring/Summer 2012 Collection. Or, here's another idea, you could mix the pale pastels with one or two dashing bright colors of your shoes, belt, bag, or even hat! Just don't hesitate to scream the spring out of your colorful outfit this season ahead! ;)

So, it was super fun at the TLTSN lookbook photoshoot. You could see the arrangement set and the people involved in the last photo above. This time, our stylist explored the basics, like white and denim, with pop-out color and full pattern accessories. You know, we just can't get enough of floral and polka patterns, right? ;) We editorially love the white layered dress wore on the photo below, and you can see how it can be styled into a hemmed top with short denim as seen on the first photo in this post. :) What do you think?

A colorful-splashed shoes is just what you need to nailed one of your Spring/Summer looks!
