One Indonesian fashion designer has been gaining international kudos for his avant-garde style, and he is hoping to put Jakarta on the list of global fashion capitals.
Tex Saverio shot to fame after his bridal gown design was chosen for Jennifer Lawrence's character in the blockbuster sequel "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire."
"We were contacted by her stylist who said she was looking for a dress but not a typical wedding dress. She saw our White Collection and thought it would fit in with the theme of the movie," said Saverio. "I was so surprised that she selected me."
Tex Saverio's reputation has been gaining ground, with more international celebrities wearing his designs including reality star Kim Kardashian, Lady Gaga and Japanese pop star Ayumi Hamasaki. The price tag of his hand-embroidered gowns can go up to $15,000 per piece.
Saverio's motivations and inspirations are simple: Women.
