All About Rose

What pops out in your mind when you hear the word rose? For me, its femininity. Whether it’s valentine’s day or anniversaries, people always give roses more than the other flowers. Why? Because rose symbolizes LOVE.

Have you seen or at least heard about the new collection of Dorothy Perkins? They released this lovely collection on Saturday, 21 June 2014. It is called “All About Rose”.”All About Rose” is an exclusive collection; yes, by exclusive means it’s limited. It is only available in two stores which is at Central Park Mall and Grand Indonesia Mall.

Did you know? Dorothy Perkins is named after a type of English summer rose with a cluster of pink blooms. Their namesake rose is immortalized in a digital print that features throughout the All About Rose collection. In this new collection of Dorothy Perkins, we are sucked into the world of roses filled with pastels, jacquard rose detailing on sweaters and 3D flower embellishment. Their new limited-edition collection features standout dresses, pleated skirts, soft tailoring and stunning separates has been pulled together to mix textures and prints; and encapsulates the floral trend with roses and flower detailing in jacquard, lace, applique and embroidery. The pretty palette of blush and cornflower blue makes it the obvious choice for your summer style needs. From waist-cinching maxi skirts and coordinating blouses, to pretty floral dresses and softly tailored silhouettes, this 16-piece collection is channeling some seriously girly vibes, and I love it!

The event was held at Central Park Mall and I was one of the lucky people that got the chance to view the collection first. As soon as I entered the store, we are welcomed with rose themed tea party filled with cute tiny little snacks.

Ali Charisma is one of the rising designers in Indonesia. He is currently the Vice President of APPMI (Indonesian Fashion Designers Association). Last month, he showcased his second line collection at Jakarta Fashion & Food Festival. They opened the show with the models walking pass through each other holding candles. I would say it was a great idea since all the people’s attention directly moved towards the main stage instead of continuing chitchat-ing or playing with their phones. You might have noticed that all the models have long side bangs hairstyle. The show was filled with monochrome, bright orange, gold and earth colors. The dresses were made beautifully with details like laces, tulle, cut outs, flowers, ruffles, and frills. They ended the show with “tongsis” time where all the models gathered in the main stage and took a selfie using tongsis.
