She used a lot of tulle to make the transparent look to fit the body. Her collection not only looked very futuristic and feminine, but also very high fashion.

Next and the grand, Grace Soenjaya with the collection called ‘Rage and Serenity’, which had the philosophy of balance between human good side and bad side. She realized this philosophy by making couture gowns with extreme details, such as feathers, beads, and silhouettes. She also used red, black, and white to give mysterious assents and elegance looks. For the make up, the models used black lipstick and eye shadow to create the mysterious looks.
