It’s all about adventure. But it is a fiction. It is ‘Criterion’ from one of Indonesia’s prominent designer Didi Budiardjo. His presentation tell us about an adventure of 12 quirky-lil bit preppy-laid back girls around the world. That’s why there are a hot air balloon there. I guess it’s ready to bring those girls everywhere that they want to.
It is full of details. We could se Japan, Europe, Russia, to Sumba from his collection. All of it are very well ornamented. And yes, it is really bohemian and lil bit hippies. Didi said that he also realize the fashion trend for next year it’s all about bo-ho. So, those colourful pattern and floral answered it all.
Earlier this month, Didi Budiardjo celebrated his 25th year on fashion industry here in Indonesia. Most of his clientele is local. “I guess the market here is enough,” he said. Mas Didi would prepare on his grand exhibition earlier next year. He said it would tell us about ‘Pilgrimage’. (I’m curious about this)

Oh ya, did u all notice the sneakers? Yes it is Nike, but Didi put a beading on it. Well, the idea to ‘put a sequin on a Nike’ i guess not a good one. But still, the collection is superb!
