Nikicio Mixte Vol. 06: Untitled Launching Night

One of the most exciting time I had this month was the launcing night of my favorite local fashion brand, NIKICIO for their new collection, MIXTE VOL.06: Untitled. This is probably my most favorite collection that they ever launched, EVER!!! The whole items in the collection were inspired by the movie "Inception", giving a collection of all black, drapery, layered, loose and imaginative design which I adore so badly (I actually had made a short review of the collection here).

I went to The Goods Dept. that night immediately after work. I brought my camera but sadly the batteries failed to charge, so I ended up using my phone camera to get the pictures for the night. Sorry for the low quality and blurry images. Hope I'll get better pictures next time :(

Nina Nikicio gave an amazing presentation to introduce the whole collection, giving some instructions for the new collection and how to have fun with the imaginary designs. She also shared every stories on how she came up with the ideas for the designs and every single piece was so irresistable!! The presentation of the night ended with everyone starting to shop for every pieces available.

JongArsitek! @ IMAJI Design Weeks

It's been awhile since the last time I updated my blog. Sorry for the quite long hiatus. Being busy probably won't be a good excuse for it, I just haven't got enough time (and the mood) to write any. Anyway, I've been on some interesting activities lately. One of them I had with JongArsitek! on the beginning of May.

On May 4th, JongArsitek! was invited to hold a special presentation on an event held by IMAJI Books Publishing along with Studio Imelda Akmal Architectural Writer (IAAW Studio) and Sonny Sandjaya Photography. The event was called “IMAJI DESIGN WEEKS”, held from April 28th to may 12th, 2011 at F4 Cone FX Plaza, Jakarta.

The event was actually a series of events involving Indonesian creative communities that are active in any kind of activies regarding on design and architecture. The event was also held as a grand launching of the book “50 INDONESIAN HOUSES & VILLAS” compiled by IAAW Studio and also an opening of a photography exhibition entitled “Every House Tells a Story”, presenting the paradox on Indonesian contemporary housing by Sonny Sandjaya and cultural dialog “Makna Sebuah Rumah” with Iwan Meulia Pirous, Director of Indonesian Anthropology.

At the presentation, JongArsitek! had the privilege of sharing and presenting all of the works and activities that have been held JongArsitek! for the past few years as a community that are joined by many local young architects, associated with the development of Indonesian architecture. The later discussion, which was joined by many members of local creative communities and personnels of IAAW Studio, also talked about JongArsitek!'s part in the local architecture development itself, which then joined by Imelda Akmal herself who gave us many input of ideas to work with.

Brightspot Market 2nd Anniversary

Last weekend was so full of excitement for me, because Brightspot Market has been held again at Pasific Place after awhile, celebrating their 2nd anniversary. I never really got the chance to join up or shop at their previous shopping madness at their previous events, so I joined every contest I found online to get their special limited opening night invitations. And I did :)

Thanks to p.a.n.g., I received an opening night invitation via twitter and I went straight to Pasific Place after work with enough cash to shop at my favorite brands that was promoting their new collections on this edition of Brightspot Market.

The night was so crowded and having myself surrounded by amazingly lovely fashion goods and with the people that were so excited on crowding all the booths you can find, was so overwhelming and I totally couldn't help myself. I spent the next hours of the night roaming all corners of the venue and enjoyed myself.

Entering with full of excitement
One of my first stops was, of course, NIKICIO
Petite Cupcakes
(ak.'sa.ra) Bookstore
The most crowded of all, CottonInk
Even the kids had the chance to be fashionable

It was a lovely night, and I actually went back to Pasific Place and visit Brightspot Market again with my boyfriend on Saturday, and enjoyed the famous Baileys Milkshake on The Goods Dept Cafe. It was fun. Can't wait for the next Brightspot Market.
