Sapto at ESMODJAKARTA, Nov 22, 2009 / — Day 4 of Jakarta Fashion Week 09/10 is a particularly exhilarating one with its lineup of amazingly talented young designers. ESMOD Jakarta gathered 9 of their alumni and put together a show, which gave everyone a glimpse of what the future of Indonesian fashion would look if these talents were allowed to blossom.

Even though Indonesia’s senior designers are superb couturiers, most Indonesians do not have access to their work unless by special appointment. These vibrant young designers respond to a growing demand for more ready-to-wear lines for the sophisticated young market in need of fashionable yet practical style solutions to accommodate their daily activities.

One of the standouts was Sapto whose collection was pure couture. Inspired by Joan of Arc, his finale piece was a structured armor covered with tiered fringe, a perfect and befitting illustration of his immaculate craftsmanship.
