Jakarta Fashion Week 2016: MELLIFLUOUS MARMOREAL

I finally received decent pictures of my collaboration with the magnifique Bramanta Wijaya. Last October, he had a collection to show in Jakarta Fashion Week. Me and my mom have been his loyal customer over the year. Knowing I have a handbag line, we saw the opportunity of doing a collab for several of his masterpieces. One step ahead, Vine. Yess. Soon, I will have my very own collection on the runway. InsyaAllah.. :) Unfortunately I wasn't there and I can't be there, 16,000 miles away and I have school that I cannot missed. Sad :(

So here they are.. MELLIFLUOUS MARMOREAL by Bramanta Wijaya x Saravine & Co.

A Night on The Nile

Last night, I attended a beautiful event that held at The Metropolitan Museum of Art by College Group with my friends, Sydney, River, Nico, and Ashley. 

The College Group at the Met (CGM) is a group of local college students who plan events and programs for other students. The CGM's mission is to enhance Museum programming with regard to local college students, to connect campus communities with the Museum, and to increase student engagement at the Museum. Through programming, the CGM creates opportunities for all students—from all backgrounds and academic majors—to encounter and explore the Met's collection in new ways.

CGM invited college students to spend an evening in Egypt celebrating the special exhibition Ancient Egypt Transformed: The Middle Kingdom (October 12, 2015 - January 24, 2016). Which fascinate me in many ways, I always have admire ancient Egyptian cultures, Cleopatra and Pharaoh, yaass!Thematic groupings of artifacts from domestic settings, tombs, and temples reveal the breadth of artistic expression, evolution of styles, and the transformation of many aspects of Egyptian culture and religion. The exhibition is made possible by Dorothy and Lewis B. Cullman. Additional support is provided by The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, Diane Carol Brandt, and The Daniel P. Davison Fund. It is supported by an indemnity from the Federal Council on the Arts and the Humanities. Too bad I didn't take a lot of pictures because I was beyond enjoying the beauty of the Middle East Kingdom.

Anyway, I also attended Black Student Union Fashion Show, one of FIT clubs last week. I bought the dress from one of the designers that showcased her collection, her name is Tiahna Gerrero. It was love at first sight. I said to my friend, River, who was sitting next to me, "I'm getting that dress". And last night, I wore it at the MET :) yeay #FashionBusinessManagementStudent Why start later if you can do it now? #BuyerLife hahaha

Chanel's Boy.Friend Watch Launching in NYC

(Mimi Lombardo, Haute Living) --- Chanel’s “Boyfriend” woman’s timepiece launched last night during New York Fashion Week with a soiree’ befitting of the covetable name in fashion. The meatpacking district was the hotspot for the event with the theme of “ Lost Without My Boyfriend.” Handsome waiters flanked the entrance serving cocktails while fashion and watch press mingled and viewed the timepieces.

The Boyfriend watches were lined up like ducks in a row with crocodile and leather bands in red, navy blue or black. The watch is available in two sizes; 34.60 mm or 26.70 mm. Other choices are 18K with brilliant-cut diamonds or without. The larger face has 66 diamonds and the smaller model has 64. Both sizes were available in automatic self-winding or quartz.
The event-featured stations where guests could press large Chanel buttons which ejected rub-off watch tattoos— there was a station where tattoos could then be applied right on the spot. At the rear of the room was a large white leather sofa where guests lounged and view a film. A white old-style Coca Cola vending machine sat near the hores d’oeurvres bar which contained small glass bottles of personalized Coke with “Boyfriend”, emblazoned on the label. There was a whimsical and easygoing vibe to the affair.
The Boyfriend watch launched in Paris earlier in the year at their fine jewelry boutique in Place Vendome and it was said that it would launch worldwide in September. The “Boyfriend’s” case is reminiscent of the first watch launched by Chanel in 1987 called the Premier—its octagonal shape referenced Place Vendome in Paris where Madame Chanel lived.
The “Boyfriend” features a finely guilloche’ dial without any hour numbers, an onyx set crown and a sapphire crystal. Alligator strap colors come in black, red white and navy blue.

I am so lucky working in Department of Student Life at FIT. I was the one who received a package from Chanel for my supervisor. When she was back to her office, I handed it to her, and she opened it. It was a bundle of Chanel Boy.Friend Watch Launching invitations, and she gave me one. Aw thank you Chenise xx

Open House New York: TWA Building

Yesterday, I went to the TWA building, one of the historic building that Open House New York had to over last weekend.

What is TWA building?
The TWA Flight Center or Trans World Flight Center, opened in 1962 as the original terminal designed by Eero Saarinen for Trans World Airlines at New York City's John F. Kennedy International Airport. Although portions of the original complex have been demolished, the Saarinen-designed head house has been renovated and is partially encircled by a replacement terminal building, which was completed in 2008. Together, the old and new buildings comprise JetBlue Airways' JFK operations and are known collectively as Terminal 5 or simply T5Both the interior and the exterior were declared a New York City Landmark in 1994. In 2005, the terminal was listed on the National Register of History Places.

It looks so familiar, where did I see it?
If you ever see the movie Catch Me If You Can (all hail Tom Hanks and Leonardo DiCaprio) or The Carrie Diaries; Season 2? The scene where Larissa Loughlin got married at the airport? Yes it was TWA building. Somehow I always have an eye on this beautiful building every time I went to JFK airport. I always make a quick errand to pass through T5. I admire this futuristic building so much that pushes me to dig more about it.

I had the chance to be there one last time, before they turn the place into a hotel lobby/aviation museum/lounge or whatever it is that will connected with T5. I saw lots of people taking advantage of this moment to have a photoshoot, people dressed up, and I did it too hahaha. I heard some of beautiful ladies telling their story when they used to work for TWA over 25 years to other visitors. I have this feeling every time I visit an exhibition or something like this, I am so happy, because people come and appreciate art, creativity of a human being is mind blown, you'll never now where creativity could take you. Btw, special thanks to my friend Cynthia for taking beautiful pictures, she and her mom came along to see it and they are both architects, so yeah I can see their excitement, more than mine :)
