Indonesian designer Farah Angsana, dedicated her Spring 2011 collection to Ethno Glam, or her journey home. It was her chance to fully adorn tradition textiles with swarvoski crystals, metal sequins and headpieces - walking the fine line between couture-like wearability and ultra-glam bridal.
The show opened with embellished cocktail dresses and corsets; keen to not just to acknowledge Angsana's flashy aesthetic, yet her craftsmanship and ability to create well-made clothing utilizing complicated trims of lace and ostrich feathers. Her draping technique, forced its way as her breadwinner - with an ability to avoid being matronly, but young, outlandish and sometimes extremely short in hemlines.
