It's like a magic, just because of one social media called twitter I can find this event. I saw this event was retweet by dreamesh, their sponsor who make a beautiful little bean bag (a price for person who came with the best dress). This event is for free but we must do a registration by the third party called Eventbrite.
Adalahkita invited Kleting and the legendary fashion stylist Chitra Subiyakto for this event called "LOKAL VOCAL" last Saturday. I think they made it to open our eyes to consume local product. Chitra Subiyakto as the first speaker told us about being loyal to local stuffs without looking boring or look traditional. She said that local not always about ethnic, we can mixed some traditional pieces into our modern outfit. As we can see that she is wearing a red dress made from saroong with a big belt on her waist. She told us that the buckle on her hips is vintage stuff with an ethnic details on it. Oh I can't tell more that shut my mouth at the first time I saw her, she's too amazing with her mind that concern about lokal stuffs and people who creates it.
She also a creative buyer for Alun-alun Indonesia (I was shocked to know this fact) and she loves to get any person who makes lokal or traditional stuffs to be sold in Alun-alun. This project not just only for business reason but also make a plan for the creator to manage their creation very well so they can make their product bigger , maybe they can export those stuffs. In another story she also told us about their past, she went to collage for economy major but she loves fashion so much, even her parents don't a agree with he choice, she keeps trying and now we can see that she success. I was so inspiring by this story, since it's a little bit my story,lol.
Now it's Kleting story as the next speaker, She told us about her life story. About how her parents had a doubt about her decision to enter ESMOD (fashion school in my town), continue her study at Italy, had a job at Hongkong, finally go back to Jakarta because she loves Indonesia so much and created KLE label. I think not much people who went to foreign country for study and want to go back to Indonesia, but I'm falling for her love to this country, also being ashamed by what she said at that time. Kleting story is more about how to built a brand, to do a good design and work hard on it, so inspiring story.
Anyway there is another story that Chitra Subiyakto told to us. She made a slideshow about her portfolio and she's adore old era, like something that can we see from "Lewat Djam Malam" movie (it's a local remake movie that i watched on Friday, thanks God I already watched it, so when she tell about it I know for sure about old things that inspire her). Anything can inspire us, it can be movie, song, people that we meet on the street and so on, just open our eyes, our ears and let's be inspire by what wee see and what we hear. score! I just love this judgement.
luce-dale. She's so pretty and friendly when I see in person. She's suddenly became our third speaker and tell us the story behind her blog. She also won the best dress with Dhea (some one who has a unique style, I think it's a little bit like Chitra, very bold but also chic too bad i didn't take any picture of her)
