I love accessories, especially the unique one. They add more colors to our outfit. They became a center of attention if we wore a simple plain outfit they become more like statement of our outfit.

Although there are so many brands out there, I prefer brands from local. Let’s just say that I support local. They have unique design, good quality, with reasonable price.

Here are some of local brands that I adore. Especially for their necklaces, which are wearable for me as hijaber. If you are looking for local accessories brand to step up your outfit game, they are some of the best out there.

Massicot by Amanda Matsuri and Ramdhan Muhammad

What I love about Massicot is that each pendulum (stone) does not have the same visual and it always one of a kind. It is a statement. It doesn’t matter if you wear a plain shirt, T-shirt, or even dress, because a piece of massicot accessories will definitely step up your plain outfit.

Schonmoi by Vedca Maria Orissa

What I really love about their necklaces are almost all of them made of wood. So it can pretty much called as part of ecofashion or sustainable fashion. The design also very unique. They are a little bit retro or vintage. So when you wanted to add some nice touch of vintage or retro style to step up your outfit game, Schon is one of the best choice out there.

Antyk butyk

All I could say about antyk butyk is not boring at all. Their accessories design or material often amazed me. The slight of culture can be see in each of their piece. You can look edgy, unique, funky, elegant, vintage, and feminine with one of their accessories in your outfit.

Environmental jewelry by Ega & Julia (EJ)

A jewelry brand which all their jewelry carefully handcrafted using dry rice grain. Yes, rice, the same rice that we used to see everyday and ate every single day. Some piece of rice add to your outfit will definitely step up your outfit game. Especially if you are a nature lover or looking for a sustainable jewelry.

Eden by sight by Jessica Saputro and Handy Yonathan

They were known for their natural gemstone in each of their accessories. Each of them are unique because of their raw nature. The design is simple and the gemstone that they use are colorful and pretty which make us look elegant.


If you want to look as pretty as if you are going to attend some tea party, just put on one of their accessories and you’ll definitely be center of attention. They really can mix kinds of rope with beads, shapes resin, or tassel into a beautiful and unique piece.

From Tiny Islands

Just like their brand name, they do look tiny and simple. Made mostly of silver and gold plated is perfect to add a statement to your outfit. If you are looking for an elegant yet not to eye catching, they are probably the best.

Atelier Pedra by Emiria Larasati

For edgy, classic, and elegant looks to step up your outfit game, Atelier Pedra offers a a simple yet detail accessories made of gold, silver, and stone. I love how simple their design look like.

Klar by Talita Natalia

A brand which use acrylic as their main material. Looks edgy, structured, and solid. They really did justice for their philosophy which is ‘a silent statement.’

Moth Jewellery

Their accessories is beyond unique. Color pencils, literally, on your plain, simple, or effortlessly outfit will mostly gain any attention out there. Not to mention, their unique and creative design. You’ll definitely want to have one of their accessories after you see them.

Busana Muslim Bagi Para Penggemar Korea

Revealing Innocence - Iva Latifah (12)Sebagai seorang muslimah, saya sering kali mencari inspirasi berbusana. Salah satu koleksi yang menarik perhatian saya adalah koleksi Iva Lativah di Indonesia Fashion Week 2014 yang bertajuk Revealing Innocence. Koleksi tersebut merupakan akulturasi Indonesia dan Korea. Busana yang ditampilkan mirip sekali dengan Hanbok (busana tradisional Korea) namun dengan sentuhan Indonesia berupa kain batik khas asli Indonesia.

Revealing Innocence - Iva Latifah (13)Saya pribadi memang terpikat oleh hanbok * akibat sering menonton drama korea yang bertema era-era Joseon * Makanya jangan heran kalau saya memasukkan film Korea berjudul “The Royal Tailor” ke dalam daftar 25 film yang layak ditonton untuk fashionnya karena disepanjang film, kita akan disuguhi berbagai hanbok yang indah dan menawan.

Sempat terbayang, hanbok itu sepertinya cocok untuk saya pakai karena desainnya yang berupa atasan dan rok panjang nan lebar, longgar, juga berlapis-lapis * dalam artian tidak menonjolkan lekuk tubuh * Oleh karena itu, ketika Iva Lativah meluncurkan koleksi akulturasinya itu, rasanya seperti salah satu impian saya terwujud sudah. * mengingat saya penggemar Korea dan pecinta batik *

Hanbok + batik + baju muslim = one of my dreams came true

Tidak salah rasanya memasukkan desainer Iva Lativah ke dalam 25 desainer busana muslim Indonesia favorit saya.

Indonesia Islamic Fashion Fair 2013

Akhirnya jadi juga saya nge-post mengenai IIFF 2013 atau yang dikenal dengan Indonesia Islamic Fashion Fair 2013 dengan jargon Style Unlimited. Meskipun latepost, tapi saya ingin sekali share mengenai pengalaman saya di IIFF 2013 ini.

One thing for sure, my prayer for that day was “God, please, don’t let me be greedy today.”

Jadi, kami beangkat ke JCC pagi-pagi, berharap kalau datang pagi maka tidak akan terlalu ramai pengunjung. Terlebih lagi, hari itu merupakan hari terakhir IIFF 2013. Saya bersama saudara dan teman berniat menjelajahi seluruh booth yang ada di IIFF. Harapannya sih begitu, tapi kenyataan berkata lain.

Tapi betapa kagetnya saya, sesampainya di sana, antrian pengunjung sudah mengular. Berarti, bukan hanya saya yang berpikir bahwa datang pagi akan sepi. Ratusan orang punya pikiran yang sama,  maka beginilah jadinya, antrian panjang di loket tiket masuk padahal loket baru saja dibuka.

Indonesia islamic fashion fair 2013-2

Begitu berhasil masuk, sambil menunggu teman yang masih dalam perjalanan, kami sempatkan diri untuk berfoto dahulu. Lumayan daripada diam menunggu. Jepret sana jepret sini, mumpung masih sepi.

Teman datang, bukannya kita langsung ke pameran, malahan foto-foto lagi. Sudah puas berfoto, barulah kami menjelajahi booth yang ada di pameran.

Oiya, di bawah ini merupakan hasil karya beberapa perancang berbakat dari Indonesia.

Indonesia islamic fashion fair 2013-5Indonesia islamic fashion fair 2013-6

Puas melihat baju nan indah, mulailah saya mampir ke beberapa booth yang memang sudah direncanakan untuk dikunjungi. Sebut saja, dian pelangi, shafira, elzatta, kivitz, mocca, vania, zoya, gda’s by ghaida,sellitoes, hingga irna la perle. They all very recommended brand for moslem fashion.

Terutama yang terakhir, Irna la Perle, yang sungguh menarik perhatian saya. Sejak dulu saya memang suka dengan koleksi mereka. Walaupun belum mampu untuk membelinya. Mulai dari modelnya yang sederhana, warna pastel dan earth color yang jadi ciri khasnya, serta bahan yang ringan dan melayang. Pokoknya, benar-benar indah.

Indonesia islamic fashion fair 2013-8

Look at my face. Mupeng alias muka pengen. Ini dia saya persembahkan, Irna La Perle collection.Setelah puas berkeliling ke booth-booth yang ada, akhirnya kami pamit juga. Walaupun pada akhirnya, tidak semua booth kami kunjungi. Takutnya saya jadi greedy alias rakus, pengen belanja sana-sini.

Untung ada mama dan sepupu yang setia menjadi ‘satpam’ saya. Senantiasa mengingatkan untuk membeli apa yang dibutuhkan alias tidak berlebihan.

Selesailah perjalanan kami kali ini. Sungguh berharap pameran ini, IIFF akan selalu hadir setiap tahunnya. Selain menambah pengetahuan untuk para hijaber di Indonesia, jakarta khususnya, pameran ini juga sebagai ajang untuk mendorong perancang muslimah muda berbakat untuk berkarya jauh lebih baik lagi.
