Indonesian born – raised in Singapore and Paris. Harry Halim is a Paris-based Creative Director who graduated from Lasalle College of the Arts in Singapore. In 2006, he launched his first womenswear collection in Singapore where he was formerly based.
After encouraging feedback from the industry and customers, he presented 2007 his second collection at the Singapore Fashion Festival while continuing his refined aesthetic of dangerously sophisticated elegance, which drew an impressive response from the international press and buyers who love him as a modern couturier.
In 2008, Harry Halim was awarded Best Asian Designer of the Year and was featured in the International industry-go-to compendium, Asian Young Fashion Designers.
The same year, he relocated his studio to Paris and started a new debut collection in Fall/Winter 2010. The collection was positively reviewed by influential fashion critics for his conceptual imagination. The following season, Harry Halim became the first Indonesian designer accepted in Paris Fashion Week’s official agenda.
In 2016 Harry Halim dedicated 1 year fully to his loyal customers, by making special private and intimate collections for each of them. “It was a personal desire I had, I wanted to honor those women who believed in me, I wanted to know them well, so I decided to make them special private sur-mesure pieces where their own self became THE inspiration behind it”
As the brand expands its clientele around the globe, Harry Halim now travels between France and Indonesia while preparing his new collection.
The Spring Summer 2018 collection releases in October 2017 during Paris Fashion Week. The collection is called “Les Fleurs du Mal”, inspired by Charles Baudelaire’s same-titled book of poems.
Loyal to its core identity, he described the brand Harry Halim as an adventure of exploring those little dark sides of every strong and independent woman. The creative director leads the brand into his personal universe where women are empowered and praised.
“I’m not trying to entertain anybody, or trying to be who I am not. Those women are the inspiration of my works, so I look upon them, and I believe they never try to be someone they’re not, or try to be different, or unique, they are not followers, they refuse to be dictated by anyone or anything, they do what makes them stronger – perhaps by fighting for what they believe in, or slowing down to get what they want… and that’s what this brand is about”.
Unlike many designers working in the industry today, he drapes all his own patterns and toiles in his studio in Paris.
“As a native Indonesian, this beautiful country always inspired me by its hundreds of tribal cultures diversity. Singapore molded me to be a perfectionist. While Paris is bringing me to another level of life. The city of light taught me to live by, with, and for passion, be true to yourself, and enhanced my appreciation of quality and freedom.” Moving forward, in response to high demands and his desire to strengthen his relationship with his inspiring homeland, Harry Halim announced the opening of his first flagship store in Jakarta in November 2017.

Thomas Wee – Singapore
Thomas Wee has been designing for more than 35 years. Emerging from the golden age of Singapore fashion of the ’80s, he continues to push boundaries in design just as he has from the start. Having represented our country on many occasions in international trade shows, Thomas is perhaps one of the few impressive ambassadors of local fashion.
In 2011, he was inducted into the CNN Power List as one of the 30 people who have shaped modern Singapore. A year later, he was invited to sit as a judging jury for the prestigious President’s Design Awards Singapore 2012.
Thomas Wee’s expertise in the field of tailoring has always set him apart, and while he no longer does the jackets that have become synonymous with his name, he is still a master craftsman at manipulating the tailleur. The evolution of the Thomas Wee style continues apace as the designer challenges himself with a new luxe that employs minimum seams to maximum effect so that silhouettes become the dramatic statement of the Thomas Wee aesthetic.
Jesus Cedeno is a multidisciplinary fashion designer born in Caracas, Venezuela in 1990. After finishing his Bachelor’s Degree in Fashion in the Instituto Brivil of Caracas, Jesus was awarded the Silver thimble as the second-best final Collection, which also landed him a scholarship from the Indonesian government to study abroad due to his participation as the secretary of the Canting Club for Batik Lovers; a community founded by the Embassy of Indonesia in Venezuela in order to promote the use and practice the technique of Batik.
From 2014 to 2015 Jesus attended PPPPTK Seni dan Budaya in Yogyakarta to study the ancient technique of the art of Batik. In 2015 he immersed himself further into his newfound devotion for Batik appearing in the Talk Show “Batik Diplomacy” for a segment for Jakarta Fashion Week; a project developed by the former Ambassador Prianti Gagarin, to share the experience of acceptance and inclusion in the fashion of batik in Venezuela.
In 2017, Jesus merged his passion for fashion, art, and culture by creating a unique runway show held at the residence of the Mexican Ambassador, ‘Mextik’, a play on the words Mexico and Batik. Jesus created a Batik motive inspired by a traditional loom from the region of Hidalgo in Mexico, in order to make a statement that advocates for sharing and respecting cultures and bringing tradition to the twenty-first century.
From there on, Jesus has established himself as a fashion designer and Batik artist in Jakarta, merging his fervor for traditional textiles and global culture, bringing the world together one dress at a time.
The creation of the capsule collection 2018 collection is inspired by the jagged, yet regular and symmetric zig-zag pattern. The pattern projects an image of a busy and fun urbanite woman on a chaotic working day, or on a weekend full of entertaining activities with friends and family. In other words, it represents a modern and confident working woman who is socially adept and full of optimism. A representation of a charismatic and sophisticated yet charming and gentlewoman, the dress cut styles remain distinctly SHERANUT, with fluid and draping fabrics that have a fabulous body. The collection includes dresses with a form-fitting style designed to fit close to your body, as well as looser fits that fall beautifully and still show off your curves without needing to be tight at all. A defining feature of this season’s collection is simple, subtle dressing for any day’s wear. In other words, the dresses have amazing simplicity and wearability and would fit in anywhere and on any occasion.
