#1 Fashion Momentum with Pison Art N Fashion Foundation

So lucky to be invited in Fashion Momentum with PISON Art N Fashion Foundation this weekends at SUTOS, there were drawing workshop, talk shows and  fashion shows..well, if it wasn’t for the institution’s plan opening the new department in fashion I definitely wouldn’t be there.. So me and my friends-Astha and Esa, we’re on a mission looking for any useful information in order to support  the new department for the institution we work for.

lurycoco.comOn Friday we met Machiko Maeyama, a Manga painter from Japan. She shared us how to drawing and coloring Manga-not the one we had expected for actually, the real fashion drawing was all we need. Not surprisingly this workshop was to promote drawing pen.. *sigh*

Pretty collections specially the haute couture..PISON got lots of talents here..we really appreciate their artworks. Not to forget the mission by the way, we managed to get several name cards from the display. Who knows 2 years from now these young designers will be tutors in our new department. Check out for day 2 report of Fashion Momentum with Pison Art N Fashion Foundation here.

Bandung Creative Movement

So excited today, in just 2 days I’m in Bandung, I’m becoming part of  Bandung Creative Movement International Seminar at Telkom University. It’s my debut to bring a presentation about my thesis for proceeding journal. That is the ‘Nostalgia and Authenticity of Faux Vintage Photo in Instagram through Digital Filters’ (see here) I bring out in front of class for only ten minutes, so I give a rapping presentation to catching up.I don’t expect much for feedback with the tight time table they give me and so many slides I have, few people will understand my presentation, if any, shame…BUT I gain a lot from this mind-broadening event.

The bible..the proceeding journal..I can’t wait for the 2nd edition!

The day before the seminar was about creative industries in Indonesia, where local creators go global such as Christiawan Lie-The Director of Caravan Studio Indonesia and my biggest inspiration Didit Maulana-Founder of IKAT Indonesia. They remind me of the dream to become fashion designer- having my own labels and printing my artwork on to the fabrics-will possibly come true if I put my best effort and dedication to it (see my new clothing line here). I’m also proud to these people with their innovation creating the local creative community such as Irvan Noe’man-The chairman of ITB IASR, Indonesian Power, and BD+A, Ria Papermoon-The Founder of Papermoon Puppet Theatre, Phaerly Maviec-The Founder of Parental Advisory Baby Clothing.

The Graduation

‘As we go on
We remember
All the times we
Had together
And as our lives change
Come whatever
We will still be
Friends Forever’
The song ‘Graduation’ from Vitamin C keeps rolling in my head as I, hubby and my folks go to Bandung to attend my master grad ceremony at Sabuga…finally it’s officially M.Ds  (Magister Desain).

IMG_1892Another is  to get some retreat  from work, releasing stress with indulging foods, going sidewalks at the city, or simply feeling the cool breeze weather coming from the mountains that surround it. But sad 🙁 I forgot to capture them..Anyway for this ‘big event’ I decided that I’m not going to use professionals to do the make up, simply to save more money to buy the make up tools for my own, besides I think I have a good taste and skill on doing this thing, I’m pretty sure about it, but that means I have to get up earlier to do it on myself first before I help mom too..no worries, I got this..

Voila! Bollywood celebrities..Is it me or this hunky darl looks like one in Mahabarata movie, regardless the 'Nyonya' near him..haha..absurd.

It’s me on the middle waiting for the calling

That’s me..right at this time I feel like my heart is about to jump out of my chest, feel so excited and nervous at the same time, it’s overwhelming..I’m on my feet proudly whispering to myself…A Cum Laude..you’re rock!!

The epic event..Sabuga is full with the crowd and the prospective graduates are among them..the excitement is in the air..

It’s cliche but this event is the important moment to me, for most people too I believe, so why not I preserve it in a conventional way in paper formats. Some preserving moments in a digital way, however  it’s still part of Kodak culture that we can’t never change completely, digital technology is complementing it. We have apps, digital album storage, sharing and tagging in social media yet at the same time keeping the shoe box full of photo papers of our ‘best’ moments or scrapbooks with photo clips inside it, anyway these are some the best moment taken during and after the event..

I guess this one is worth to be printed on paper regards the authentic background that you’ll never have in any photo studios!

#MooiIndie

lurycoco.comlurycoco.comlurycoco.comWe went to the opening  of Mooi Indie photo exhibition at Spazio, a sociohistorical culture event  featuring ‘Portrait of Life’ of Jean Demmeni, curated by archivist from ANRI (Arsip Nasional Republik Indonesia)  Mona Lohanda, Ph.D who also a historian focusing on Batavia or we call it today as Jakarta. Jean was a government photographer from Netherlands. Equipped and privileged by the government she managed to capture colonialism in Indonesia back then around 1866-1939. Her works representing the condition of modernization and industrialization Dutch brought into this country, from agricultural to factories, seafaring and trading.

Overall these works showed that ‘de Nederlanders’ domineered ‘de inlanders’ but at the same time they made them civilized. Jean also documented the beauty of landscapes and human interests of  the native land-a Mooi Indie.

lurycoco.com
Mona Lohanda is saying how important to always remember our history, to learn mistakes that we did in the past, hope that next time we won’t be trapped in the same whole again.

When seeing to these photographs it is so mind boggling we wondered how at the time Indonesia became so industrialized and modernized that  somehow nowadays our beloved country is supposed to be standing side by side with Korean, Japan or maybe China, but unfortunately the reality tells otherwise.

Ambonise soldier…the 3D effect on the picture above caused by fixed lenses. They generates a wider angle when aiming the object and a short focus length, making the objects that far behind the main focus look entirely washed out or dissolved out

That night there are height (see the two ‘bule’ near to the boy) and culture differences but united in the past until this present day at Mooi Indie 🙂

In the meantime  by continuously reflecting ourselves with the past we  can learn lessons as an improvement to  the way of thinking, acting  and seeing the world around us for the better future.
