July 21st, 2015

Finally… my shoe collection for AW 2015 are almost ready. The first theme called DANDELEE.

As i lay down on the grass looking at the blue sky, i feel like I am on my own movie of life. 
So serene… so peaceful.. so relaxing… 
I close my eyes. I can feel the warmth of the sun shining on my face and my whole body.
Let go of the worries… just think of happy moments in life…
I can hear the wind breeze like the sound of soothing music try to comfort me
I open my eyes. I can see the dandelion flying. As i blew it, the big flower fly into particle of dandelee. YES… that's how I'm going to name them.
Thank you nature for making a simple things beautiful.

The Daily Jakarta Shimbun

July 2010

I was interviewed by Yasutoshi Tsurumi from The Daily Jakarta Shimbun in July 2010. It was lost in translation interviewed but i had so much fun with him because of the language barrier. I never laugh so much during the interview. I normally feel intimidated and a bit nervous when people started to ask me questions, but it is weird that I feel so relax with Yashutoshi. I think the reason for that is because i speak better English than him. I talked with him like a mother tried to explain things to a little child. I used a lot of body languange and also pen and paper to explain and even draw things. He often mumble in Japanesse and i was smiling because i have no idea what he said.
Hopefully, he wrote a nice thing about me in the newspaper because i don't understand any single words in Japanesse. Arigatou gozaimasu... Genki deska...

Preview of my Lookbook

November 2010 

Time flies and a year gone by. I created my brand a-k and participated in Jakarta Fashion Week last year. Who will be expected that i will be participating on fashion week this year in a different brand "KALIGULA" under the wing of LEVEL ONE? *yeayyyyy... chicken dance*

Well... I'm still in a process of learning and growing. One step at the time but i always make sure that i accomplish something in a year of work. Six months after Fashion First, i was able to open my own shop that i share with some friends. I also had an offer to put my stuff at the online shopping (http://www.tiga-tiga.nl/) in Netherlands and they are willing to work as my agent *fingers cross*. 

At the moment, I'm in the process of making my lookbook for Spring Summer 2011 so i can have a proper presentation in a future. The most exciting part of all is i finally launch my small collection of shoes. I'm going to post all of my photo shoot picture as soon as i finish with Jakarta Fashion Week. It is a bit too crazy at the moment but I'm still going to put a glimpse of the picture that i have. Feel free to give a comment that can improve me but not the nasty one. I hope you enjoy it like i do love working on it. Baci...

Spring Summer 2011 Collection

September 2010
A quick peek for my Spring Summer 2011 collection. It is somehow different with my two previous collection. I got inspired by the techniques of making dumplings for the necklaces. First, i cut a small square leather and i slices the middle part. Second, i inserted the pearl. Then i folded the base and glue them together.
I had so much fun making it. It's like learning how to cook jewelery without worrying to burn things. From dumplings to ravioli style. Chop.. chop..cut, glue and make a hole. Voila... it is ready to be put on your neck mademoiselle.. xoxo..

LOOKBOOK Spring Summer 2011

November 2010 
As i promise at my previous post, I'm going to show you my Lookbook for Spring Summer 2011 Collection. I must say it was amazing experience. This is the first photoshoot for my collection that i spent money on it. It wasn't sponsored by anyone.
This thing will not happened without the help of my dearest friends. So, i think i owe them my gratitude.

I also would like to thank Charles Sumadi as a photographer. He is awesome. Last i would like to thank the make-up artist and the model, Marlene Hariman and Deasy. Love y'all...

Hello 2014

February 2014

I have abandoned my blog for quite a while. Many things have happened in my personal life. Of course there is happy time but lots of sadness, struggle, survival.. I don't feel inspired to write. I'm still in the process to overcome my resentment and I'm still in the process of letting things go. I guess this is the first time i wrote something that a little bit personal. Oh well.. I'm going to stay positive, keep working, and hopefully one day i will understand the truly meaning of acceptance.

Anyway.. enough of my personal emotion :) I would like to write something about my work.
While I was away for so long, I actually made a sister of Kaligula that i called Kala. It means Kaligis Anita. Accessories line with affordable price for Indonesian market. Its fun and wearable.

These are some samples that i created :
Red Scarlet
China Blu
Ivory Tribe

Pink Petal

Blow Preen

Spring Summer 2012 - CALLA

Spring is about gaining inspiration from nature: the scent, the breeze, the sound of curlews, the combination of buds and blooms and the exit from gloomy winter into the season of colors. The collection was drawn to and inspired by Lily, particularly the Calla Species, for its forms and symbolic value.
The ancient Greeks dedicated the lily to Hera, the wife of Zeus. Calla Lily symbolizes rebirth and resurrection which are taken in Kaligula Spring Summer 2012 collection to represent the mixture of dark and light colors.
It is bold, daring and refreshing. I hope people appreciate it as much as i love making it. Lots of love to my precious babies.... xoxo

My Best Friend Wedding

June 2011

Finally, my friend Court is getting married. I can't believe my sexy, crazy, wild girl is finally ready to settle down with a Portuguese guy name Alex. A guy that she met while traveling in Bali. Wow...

I must say it was the most romantic, intimate and beautiful wedding that i ever attended. Only family and close friends from both side. The ceremony was held at Villa Balquisse Jimbaran. The blessing ceremony was in the garden that have been decorated with dangling cloth and colorful umbrellas. It was a beautiful setting. After that, all the guests were led to the beach for group photo. We stayed there until sunset. Drinking champagne, have a small chat and they held a release of doves. I thought it was pretty funny.

We went back to the villa after sunset and seen a balinese dance performance in a garden. The night went on. We had dinner, wedding cake cut ceremony, bouquet throwing [of course i didnt't get one :)], soju drinking. I had a fabulous time in a wedding which is so rare. Here are some photos that i love to share.
