Coming home after 10 pm every night really is not good for this blog. Ms. Match has not posted for too long! anyway.. for some reason Ms. Match has been wearing oodles and oodles of pastel colours! here are a couple of examples.. maybe she should work for a cotton candy store instead? :)
This picture was taken in the talented Barli Asmara's studio, while Ms. Match had a meeting with him for her wedding kebaya. The studio is all white and filed with all sorts of nice dresses which made Ms. Match wanted to change the concept of the wedding from traditional to a more modern one so she could wear one of his nicely detailed dresses! One thing about Barli that Ms. Match likes is that unlike a lot of other Indonesian designers who uses tons of bling-blings (ou know what Ms. match means, right?), he concentrates on textured details. Smocking, pleating, weaving are some of his techniques that Ms. Match looooves. We were talking about a kebaya with a huge bow at the back made with a weaving/smocking technique. yummmy.... and also some detailed shoulders.. hmmmm... I wanted to be courages and have a futuristic kebaya with structured shoulders ala Balenciaga, buuuuttt.. maybe the family would not like it so much. This is a family affair after all.
