Living in Bali, I realized that I haven’t been talking much about the fashion scene. Last Saturday, I was invited to a very special showcase. This showcase comprised of three gorgeous presentations — fashion, jewelry and natural products. I will talk about them in 3 separate sections. Today I’ll talk about Paulina Katarina (PK), Bali-based designers that will definitely blow your mind with their chic-silhouettes.
I had a pleasure meeting Surya Paulina (left) and Ratna Katarina (right) at the event. Even though we didn’t get a chance to talk a lot but they were really nice and friendly (not to mention, very pretty!). This dynamic sister-duo has been in local/international fashion industry for years, and with their knowledge, experience and of course passion for fashion, PK was born in late 2011.
Entering their little “gallery” of fashion, I was greeted with beautiful catalog and romantic flower display on an antique-looking wooden table. Everything was elegantly exhibited — From the well-ordered dress racks to the mannequins showcasing their latest collection. They were such a sight to see, a sweet combination of playful and sophisticated color tones. I simply couldn’t resist running my fingers through each hanger, just to feel the soft and gentle fabric.
“The Innocent Bystander” was the main-theme of this showcase.While you could feel a strong presence of lace knitted in various floral styles, you could also enjoy the glamorous golden details with flirtatious sequins and delicate suede. The Innocent Bystander is alluring, sensual, classy and elegant. You can tell how much they understand and appreciate a woman’s figure through every curves, every stitches that accentuate the body. Each detail is created attentively, like the criss-cross on the sides and the suede patches on the sleeves.
So, if you plan to be the next Sex & the City girl, then you should consider having “The Innocent Bystander” in your next must-have list. My pictures can’t even do the justice, that’s why I figured these catalog photos will give you even better idea of what I’m talking about! : )
1. The Black Lace Goddess.
These are definitely my favorites! Mysterious, girly and very elegant. Perfect for your cocktail parties or romantic dates ; )
2. The Refreshing Green.
Color your day (or night) with these classic and sophisticated dresses. I’m loving the criss-cross and body hugging type. Wear this for your daytime rendezvous or night time show-off!
3. The Glamorous Diva.
