MIMPI

diambil dari fashiongonerogue.com



        Ketika saya membuka laptop, mata saya langsung tertuju kepada desktop background model berbalutkan rancangan Giambatista Valli pada Paris Haute Couture 2013. Saya termangu pada keindahannya. Dress hijau lumut itu diberikan aksen pada leher dan sepanjang kaki jenjang model tersebut. Saya berpikir bagaimana caranya seorang Valli bisa sekreatif ini? Atau terus menerus sekreatif sekonsisten ini?
           Saya tidak habis pikir. Perancang busana selalu dituntut untuk berinovasi terus menerus. Mereka menciptakan karya sesuai intepretasi masing-masing serta menyesuaikan selera pasar yang fluktuaktif. Pemikiran saya sempat berkali-kali bergumam apakah akan ada saatnya ketidaksengajaan penciptaan karya yang serupa antar desainer? Sebagai contoh kasus hak cipta sol merah Louboutin yang pernah kita dengar. Bukankah ini semua hanya persoalan mengolah bahan utama, selembar bahan, yang bisa membuat indah tubuh manusia? Apakah keadaan ini masuk ke dalam fase kejenuhan, fase kosongnya ide atau fase apa?
Di tengah-tengah kemajemukan kreativitas perancang busana Indonesia, saya selalu berusaha menemukan ciri khas masing-masing. Saya yakin perbedaan itulah yang menciptakan jati diri yang unik pada tiap-tiap perancang busana. Pernyataan itu membawa saya kepada pertanyaan, jika saya seorang perancang busana, keunikan apakah yang akan saya bawa? Kreativitas seperti apakah yang akan saya kembangkan?
Mungkin tulisan ini lebih banyak membahas mengenai saya dan cara berpikir saya tentang mode. Saya masih awam mengenai mode maka harus banyak belajar. Saya telah menghadiri beberapa pagelaran busana dan sekadar menjadi penikmat alias penonton saja. Sering, saya ingin naik level dalam dunia mode, setidaknya mode Indonesia. Entah menjadi perancang busana, reporter mode di majalah atau apa saja asal saya bisa memberikan kontribusi bagi dunia itu. Saya juga masih belajar mengenai budaya Indonesia dan berharap bisa memadupadankannya dengan dunia mode. Budaya Indonesia memiliki potensi yang kaya untuk diolah dengan kreativitas yang matang sehingga sedap dilahap segala pancaindera. Itulah mimpi saya.
Terkadang saya takut kehabisan gagasan untuk disajikan ke khalayak ramai. Misalnya dalam menulis atau merancang sketsa saja saya sering berhenti pada suatu titik. Saya masih banyak tidak tahu tentang bahan, material mode dan lain sebagainya. Saya tidak bisa menyalahkan diri sendiri karena tidak bisa membayar sekolah mode yang memang cukup mahal. Ketidaktahuan memang seperti pisau bermata dua. Ia bisa membuat kita berhenti berpikir dan benar-benar berhenti atau malah memacu untuk mengeksplor pengetahuan lebih dalam. Kita tinggal memilih dua opsi tersebut untuk menjawab.
Namun, apapun kendalanya saya masih tetap memperjuangkan mimpi saya. Mengasah kreativitas, membentuk jati diri yang solid dalam karya sendiri baik dalam rancangan maupun tulisan, dan mungkin mencari celah untuk selalu mendapat tempat di industri mode yang sangat ketat dengan cara yang positif adalah beberapa cara yang bisa saya lakukan. Yang terpenting adalah berharap Tuhan memberikan saya kesempatan untuk menjemput kesempatan yang ada. Karena berkontribusi dan menjadi saksi tumbuh kembangnya dunia mode Indonesia adalah pekerjaan yang saya cita-citakan.

TREND SHOW 2013 BY IPMI


       I had already waited for Trend Show 2013 by IPMI (Ikatan Perancang Mode Indonesia). The eight designers who are the members of IPMI had already prepared for the show in October 9th 2012. Brought by the theme of Energy, depicted as the balance of totality side in fashion, these talented designers were showing off their collections based on their own interpretation. The theme Energy divided into 'Adrenaline Rush', 'Silence Zen' and 'Equilibrium'.
         Barli Asmara's show in Trend Show 2013 I think was the most impressive show. He had the most number of applause in the hall. I was so excited I could see Barli Asmara's fashion show. He is my favorite designer so far. I got more excitement when I took a photo with him! LOL! Yes, I was the happiest girl at that time. No doubt :)
          I took pictures too with the other designers and the model. You know what, Valentino Napitupulu even queried me whether I was a Susan Budihardjo's (fashion school) student. Hahaha! That was the second time people mistakenly guessed that I were a fashion student. I just wonder what makes them think I were. Anyway, perhaps, I will be fashion student later. Who knows? :)

PSYCHEDELIC IN BORNEO

            My interpretation about psychedelic is a blend of various shades of rich colors that form a beautiful shape views. I add detail tiny petals which are arranged in neat costume to represent gradations of color from the psychedelic theme. Motif of the island of Borneo with a black base color is very inspiring also helping me decorate my design. I modify the motif shape also the basic color in print with all due to the respect to the meaning of these motifs. I also add a tassel accent for a strong tribal impression. I design simple shoes and hairdo also a simple headband as a head sweetener. Similarly, the make up, I just polish the face with the same basic color print motif of Borneo. My design in this Psychedelic in Borneo is visualized as a relatively simple design but has couture in it.
              In the first image (far left), I us shades of brown, red, and pink petals on the details. I give print motif in brown tends to red color and red balloon skirt pieces are uneven. The second picture, I play hit a light blue color with a fresh green shades. For the top I give pleated and rigid cutting. The third picture, I give cutting along the top right in the middle. The combination of purple and blue flower petals is alluring detail. I made a bracelet from the pink tassel accent .The fourth image, the print fabric is modified to be a skirt from under chest to a few inches above the knee. Shades of red, orange and yellow color the flower petals. I give some cutting in the details which are connected by thin threads that is strong but not too invisible.
            I hope this design can be something new in this girl band era. By adding an element of Indonesia, I also hope local motif and beautiful historical value in this costume could stay the sustainability awake and recognized by the public.
         That is a simple explanation about the design. Thank you for all of the supports even I didn't win the competition but I'm happy I can be a part of ★ Best 40 Artwork. This is my first  design competition and it is a beginning achievement for an amateur designer like me hehehe. Stay tune for more post!
