A Night of International Couture

The Mobiliari Group, publisher of Indonesia Tatler, delighted in collaborating with the Asian Couture Federation and The Proposal to present " Luxury Fashion Night", last June 10, 2015 at The Ballroom of Sampoerna Strategic Square. L'Queen, Regent and Wolf Blass, three top brands known for their quality and preminence, generously sponsored the elegant evening. The distinguished guests invited to the event included more than 250 of Jakarta's most established elite, ambassadors and celebrities as well as young and upcoming socialites.

In the opening scene of The Proposal, they introduced Shanghai designer, Jin Zhi Yu Ye, followed by the vibrant designs of Ines Di Santo from Canada. The sequence continued with the avant-garde creations of David Fielden, who hails from the United Kingdom, and the architectural inspirations behind Italian, Peter Langner. In the final scene, Galia Lahav from Israel, the couture designer who has been dressing celebrities and women worldwide for over three decades, enticed the imagination. The cherry on the cake was Madame Yumi Katsura's designs, which were glazed with fantastical ideas. The lady herself attended the occasion. The highlight of the evening was the theatrical choreography of Madame Yumi Katsura's 50th Celebration Collection.

Capturing the heart of the audience, Madame Yumi Katsura selected couture creations using vintage Iwan Tirta Batik from 1995 and Yuzen; a 400 year old Japanese heritage, akin to Indonesian Batik, known as Rimpa. Fashion and technology also collided during her runway sequence, when her bridal gowns lit up with glorious LED lights. In the grand finale, Madame Yumi Katsura herself strutted down the runway swaying the Japanese and Indonesian flags while the national anthem " Indonesia Raya" was proudly playing. A spontaneous standing ovation displayed the crowd's adoration as Mrs. Millie Stephanie and Mrs. Yuki Cintamani handed floral bouquets to Madame Yumi Katsura.

For the reminder of the evening, invited guests enjoyed the lively sounds of DJ Agung, tantalising wines and cocktails from Wolf Blass and gastronome gourmet served by Ismaya Catering with mineral water supplied by Equil. L'Queen also had their own product displays and wall of fame manned by two handsome European male models dresses in contemporary Gregorian attire, much to delight of the ladies who attended. In addition, the evening was also made possible through the generosity of Asian Couture Federation, Yumi Katsura, The Proposal, Clockwise Pictures and LT Pro.
