my life in fashion:2.the complex feeling when it all started

part 2 : the complex feeling when it all started

when i was in high school i was still thinking that fashion wouldn't be my option for studying after i graduate from it later.cause my older sister had already put her mind to choose this option for her career and i didn't want to or actually i'd never want to be a follower,and i really hate to be judged as if i didn't have my own dreams.and i was glad i didn't have any interest in this field anyway.

i saw that my mom also againts her will to study fashion too,since the costs was quite expensive and she said to my sister that she couldn't afford to pay for her school cause there were still 3 children  in this family to support,my brother,me and my little sister.well,we were a quite big family, with 5children in total. but her(my sis) will was bigger than anyone else even our parents,so she came up with the idea of finding one job to help my parent supported her school fees.she worked in one supermarket from morning until late afternoon then as soon as she finished,she ran to the fashion school until abit late at night.all of her salary was only for the school,no fun no shopping.after sometimes,she managed to finish the study and find a job.luckily it was fast and she was happy.

there was a slight ambition growing inside me that i had to achieve better than her,although not in the same field.and i was kinda dreaming maybe i would became a doctor but the doctor who like drawing,or a physics professor with drawing skills,etc.but all of that dream had fallen apart at the same time i failed in the test for state university.i lose hope and the will to look for private institute where i can continue my study, i prefered to stay and  did nothing just to cure my hurted feeling cause of my own failure.

my mom hated to see me like this,so she decided to find a proper school for atleast filling up this year so i could re-take the test for famous art division in one state university nextyear.she told me to take this as the preparation by not wasting a year only for playing useless thing.she said that i had the ability,i just need to sharpened my skills.honestly i had an extremely lack of confidence,i really underestimate myself.since i was a quiet and introvert person,for me,each new place,new people,new situation would have been a great nightmare.but anyway,i found what my mom's words make sense in my mind,so in the end i accepted her offers,and i just told her that i'll do as she said.

i was registered in two different schools,one was diploma major in English, and the other ws fashion design. and every week i have to study these 2 at the same times,fashion in the afternoon and english in the mom warned me not to neglect any of them,she didn't want to accept any failures. i knew she really meant with what she said,so i tried hard to do so,although inside me,i was still confuse whether i made a right decision since this wasn't my dream at all in the beginning.( August 28th,1997) 




fashion legend : coco chanel

Gabrielle Bonheur "Coco" Chanel (19 August 1883 – 10 January 1971)[1] was a pioneering French fashion designer whose modernist philosophy,menswear-inspired fashions, and pursuit of expensive simplicity made her an important figure in 20th-century fashion. Her influence on 

haute couture was such that she was the only person in the field to be named on TIME Magazine's 100 most influential people of the 20th century.[2] the complete biography of coco chanel-wikipedia, the chanel empire-wikipedia.

comment: i have always admired her for the simplicity,comfortable and elegant designs.the number one idol for fashion legend of all time.  

fashion in movie:witch amusement(korean drama)

As the director of her father's advertising company, Ma Yoo Hee (Han Ga In) is known as a witch for her ruthless, no nonsense character.

As a way to work off his debt for crashing into her car, he agrees to become her housekeeper and personal love affairs coach for one month. Gladly, he gives her a makeover that attracts both her old friend Johnny Kruger (Dennis Oh) and her first love Joon Ha (Kim Jeong Hoon).

fashion in movie:the Devil wears Prada(2006)

Andrea "Andy" Sachs, an aspiring journalist fresh out of Northwestern University, lands the magazine job "a million girls would kill for": junior personal assistant to icy editor-in-chief Miranda Priestly, who dominates the fashion world from her perch atop Runway magazine. She puts up with the eccentric and humiliating requests of her boss because, she is told, if she lasts a year in the position she will get her pick of other jobs, perhaps even the journalistic position she truly craves.

At first, she fits in poorly among the gossipy fashionistas who make up the magazine staff. Her lack of style or fashion knowledge and fumbling with her job make her an object of scorn around the office. Senior assistant Emily Charlton, her coworker, is condescending to her. Gradually, though, with the help of art director Nigel, Andrea adjusts to the position and its many perks, including free designer clothing and other choice accessories. She begins to dress more stylishly and do her job competently, fulfilling a seemingly impossible request of Miranda's to get two copies of an unpublished Harry Potter manuscript to her here for the rest of the synopsis

comment: this is one of my favorite movie,the story is just great! and i love meryll streep's acting.and the clothes is just adorable!love it! no more words two thumbs up!

my design in you tube

i made this just to show some of my design from last year.

some of my design in some companies i've worked before


these are only one sample for each company that i've worked before.

the trouser was for mad rags burgs co. and the other was for malla ramdani boutique.

that time i really depend on my skill to draw for my work,but now this thing(drawing manually) has gradually changed into computerized designing,although the picture is great but for me the sense of art is far behind.

some of my designs for hangtag


actually some of these designs were not made into production in the end cause of the decision made by my boss, all i can do is just keep these files for myself. nomatter its approved or not i always put it as one of my files of idea,for my own refference later in the future.

my life in fashion:1.a word became reality


part 1: a word became reality.

this stage of my life i have never expected before,because in the beginning,actually, i hate to draw clothes.i just love to draw cartoon,views that describing my heart's mood,and i was really enjoying myself in expressing it into a picture in a paper.

but then again only God knows and by the power of God,my life has changed 180 degree in a few years,turned into doing something that i hate,designing clothes.

i have always proud of myself too much so that its embarrasing for me to take other's opinion.lets say i was a selfih arrogant person. but i have to eat my own word after this.

about 2 years ago,she, Anita, a friend i knew in the mosque,saw me drawing(actually i was the one who tried to draw an attention from peoples around me,cheesy me),that time i drew a male face and a view.she then asked me to lend her my drawing so that she could take a good look at the, i gave it to her.

'maybe it would be better if you registered yourself into a fashion school to be a student after finishing your high school,so you can be a fashion designer,especially for moslem clothes,cause its still rare among us to have a moslem fashion designer'. that was the words i heard from her,maybe not exactly like that but the point was the same,since i hardly remember it now.

 i was giving her (again) a selfish answer.that i did not want to follow her suggestion cause i did not have any slightest interest in fashion seemed that karma fell upon me,in the end i did as she said,although it was not my will to study fashion design but more to fulfilling my mom's wish since i failed in entering art faculty in one famous state university of my town.just for one year,i have to bear with all of this fashion things and deal with my own dislike abt it.

(note of 28th august 1997) 

design drawings


these were from my early years of making hand drawing design for my school and my work too.

the early years of design


this one is the drawing when i was in design school and from the first company i've worked while studying fashion design.

actually its kinda hurtful everytime i see the picture where i used to work,coz all i can remember from it is that i've being used by my senior and they stole my ideas,then dumped me without feeling guilty.but anyway,im grateful i didn't last long working there since i've gained many experiences after that meanwhile my seniors still stuck in the same spot where they begin.

another hand drawing design


i made this when i was working for british guy.

he's very kind and taught me a lot.

i can never thanked him enough for the experiences with designs while working with him.
