PEARLASIA, Anniesa Hasibuan for 2016 Couture Fashion Week

I know it's been a week after the amazing show of PEARLASIA, Anniesa Hasibuan for 2016 Couture New York Fashion Week. Is it too late to give you the complete story of the show? I sincerely hope not. Particularly since we have so many follow up activities after this successful show.





That Saturday was supposed to be the coldest day in the year. Artic weather came and said hi, even decided to stay around, I guess. But that didn't stop me from heading to Crowne Plaza Times Square, where 2016 Couture New York Fashion Week took place.

Brought 2 bags of jasmin rice, important staple food for my fellow Indonesians joining Anniesa Hasibuan's team, I braved myself and headed to the hotel. It was not that bad when I arrived, as sunshine did warm the day a little bit. As I arrived, mba Caroline Septerita, the senior professional makeup artist and hijab stylist, was working on Laura Muljadi, one of Indonesian super models joining the team. On the corner, Sarah Azka, another super model came directly from Jakarta, Indonesia, busied herself with snapchat as her makeup was done. Then everything felt like blurred memory as we get everything ready, from special goodie bags for Anniesa's guests to preparing the dresses, from finding the missing models and taking selfies with them. All behind the scene until the show itself started.

And I got to admit, I can still feel the goosebumps I got looking at the intricate details and royal look of 15 stunning dresses prepared and made with love by our talented young designer, Anniesa Hasibuan.

Anniesa Hasibuan mungkin merupakan salah satu pendatang baru di dunia fashion Indonesia. Namun gebrakannya luar biasa. Setelah tahun lalu tampil pula di 2015 Couture New York Fashion Week dengan Sasikirana, tahun 2016, Anniesa kembali mencuri hati NYC dengan PEARLASIA, koleksi adi busana yang sarat dengan mutiara Lombok yang terkenal di dunia. Brokat pilihan dalam berbagai warna pastel maupun nuansa off white and gold membuat koleksi busana haute couture yang cocok dipakai oleh ratu dan putri ini sukses menuai pujian di panggung NYFW.

As promised, while enjoying my first row experience during the fashion show, I took the liberty of taking some snaps with my smartphone. And working behind the scene with the team get me the up-close-and-personal look of the astonishing works of Anniesa Hasibuan.

Pengalaman yang mencerahkan lho bisa duduk di deretan depan pertunjukan fashion sekelas Couture New York Fashion Week, sekaligus membantu tim di belakang panggung dalam mempersiapkan model dengan pakaian-pakaian yang akan ditampilkan. Bayangkan saja... ada 15 baju yang ditampilkan dengan 15 model, 2 dari Indonesia, Laura Muljadi dan Sarah Azka, serta 13 model lainnya dari berbagai negara, termasuk Inggris, Belanda, dan USA. Beberapa pakaian menggunakan petticoat atau lapisan dalam yang menggembung dengan barisan kancing tutup yang memanjang di bagian belakang. Belum lagi penutup kepala atau hijab dan mahkota mutiara yang digunakan oleh setiap model. Pendek kata, seru :). Banyak kejadian asyik yang asli seru dan takkan terlupakan.

Stay here and enjoy the dresses :).
I only use my iPhone 6 plus and Ztylus camera for this, leaving my DSLR and all those lenses at home so that I can sit down and really enjoy the show.

Kali ini, saya hanya mengandalkan handphone untuk mengambil foto-foto selama fashion show berlangsung. Dan hasilnya tidak begita maksimal memang, namun yang penting saya tetap menikmati jalannya pagelaran busana ini dan mengabadikan beberapa.

And once again, congratulations to Anniesa Hasibuan and her team. It's very unfortunate that Anniesa herself cannot join us on this great event but working behind the scene with such a solid team is incredible. Kisses for mba Caroline Septerita, Mba Murni, Indah, Hanna, Mas Aldi, Ariz, Fuad, and Mba Afida Sukma. And of course, our lovely models, Laura and Sarah, plus Mba Ika et Matteo. Great job, everyone :).

great job, everyone :)
Hope Mba Anniesa Hasibuan will join us on the next show :)
