Tex Saverio Launches Couture Collection

The upcoming Indonesian designer shows mettle - and metal - at his Jakarta presentation


Last year, we saw a hint of what Tex Saverio could do when he teamed up with local label Love, Bonito on a special collection. Then on Wednesday, the upcoming Indonesian designer – who’s designed for names such as Lady Gaga, Kim Kardashian and produced that spectacular dress on The Hunger Games – pulled out all the stops with the launch of his first couture show and a presentation in Jakarta attended by 1,500 people.

Called Trism, the collection was divided into three segments: Purity (white, detailed and bride-worthy), Passion (intricate embroidery on black) and Evolution (fantastical designs on a white and gold palette). Saverio closed his show with a futuristic, sculpted metal gown that glided down the runway and gave everyone that perfect Instagram moment.

Said the designer: “(Trism) took me two years, because I wanted it to be special. Everything was made by hand, focusing on the couture tradition itself. This is my utmost contribution to Indonesia’s creative industry.”

See his collection for yourself in the gallery above!
