Ladies and gentlemen, may I present one of the most innovative and prestigious designers in the fashion industry today. Born on September 27th in Solo, Indonesia, Sapto studied fashion design & pattern making at L’Ecole Superieure des Art et Technique de la Mode, the first fashion school established in France. He also attended the International Fashion University in Indonesia, Esmond Jakarta.  His fashion designs boldly fuse surrealism and his cultural influences, creating sophisticated yet fiercely imaginative pieces. The beauty in Sapto’s fashion design brand, launched in 2007, is rooted in his artistic eye and passion to create illustrious designs that stand the test of time.

In 2009 Sapto, launched his highly acclaimed Ready-to-Wear Couture Fashion collection and in 2011 the Elle Style Award named him “Fashion Designer of the Year.” This past 2012 was a prequel of all the great things that are to come for Sapto this year  starting with an exclusive fashion spread of Sang Randeng Girah collection in dewi’s January issue; celebrities red carpet & event appearances in the designer’s dresses as well as a spread in Elle Indonesia December 2012 and an article in Marie Claire Indonesia October 2012. His latest Spring/ Summer 2013 designs are inspired by the Vatsu Vidya and were presented  at the Dewi Fashion Knights 2012 in Indonesia. His collections encompass ready-to-wear, haute couture, and bridal wear.

So, without further ado may I present, a look into the mind of fashion’s surrealistically bold designer, Sapto Djojokartiko

A Ms.Monique

August 23, 2012

She is pointed,
pirouetted, pretty not politically correct, she is,
*

devout.
*
Dangerously deep, swag walking no doubt; A Ms.Monique.
*

A pseudonym given not to the faint of heart,
A land blaster.
*

She combats,
creates,
shes charming work of art.
*

And all that female intuition, excavated from the soul of the Madonna.
Adviser and wise.
She doesn’t ask for permission,
she permeates & pile drives.
**

Stunner, splendid solid shades propped upon the Ace in Spades.
Pursed lips, tilted crown, you’ll never catch this Queen down; She’s chic sweet constant.
 

Seeking soaring singing
her mind is bejeweled with that # bling bling;
A Ms.Monique
*

She don’t care.
She’s gliding, bold, brave above the atmosphere.
A mighty mammoth motha’
She’s a revolt, a boss, an elixir to chaos.


HAPPY BIRTHDAY MONIQUE!

They say you can tell a lot about a person by the shoes they wear, but what about hats? There’s nothing like sprucing up an outfit by topping it off with a ‘how do you do?’ tip of the hat. In the old days the type of hat you wore said just as much about you as the shoes you walked in.

Hats have been a staple style accessory for every generation allowing people to express their taste and also as a marker of what type of lifestyle one has.

And let’s face it, it added grace to Audrey.

It made the exceptionally mad hatter an exceptional trend setter.

 

 

 Bridesmaids use it to add a little spunk to their pastel prettiness.

Hats are special enough that we’ve made it, in the brides case, a staple to one of the happiest day’s of our lives.

Hats like these can completely excite an outfit and make a plain white shirt go from bland to glam…did I just say that, well, ok corny ’cause it rhymes, but awesome because it’s true!

Cowboy hats are not just a thing of the west, they are great style accessories to a nice denim pants a beautiful Mr.Kate necklace and a plain white-t, only, please, don’t get too excited, one hat at a time will do just fine.

This Halloween, it can even be used along side DIY make-up to make for a fun and unique costume!

Here are our very own Mr.Kate hat wearers with fun Halloween face paint check out our “DIY-unzip your true colors Halloween make-up” section.

And in case you have a hat that needs an extra UMPH! Then DIY and take a feather, scraps of jewelry or even a button, a glue gun and vuaahhhallaa!!

And yes, head scarfs count as a hat.

Hats just make everything so much more “Well, hellllooo DOlly!” And if you don’t take my word for it, then take this little guys face for it and yes this Groucho Marx mustache is real, just don’t stare too hard, I dear say he’s sensitive. 😉

Hats, it’s what you wear from ear to ear!
