Jakarta, Indonesia, Sept 28, 2013 - (ACN Newswire) - On September 28, 2013, at the Place de la Concorde in Paris, Tex Saverio, the rising star of Indonesia's fashion world, will debut his ready to wear line, which is expected to be consistent with the dramatic, intricate and fantastical characters of his main bespoke line.

Tex first won global attention when he rocked the runaway of the Jakarta Fashion Week (JFW) in 2010, and when he was selected as one of the year's best designers by Indonesia's top fashion magazine, Dewi, published by Femina Group, the same company which runs the JFW. Pictures of his collection at the time, entitled "La Glacon", captured the attention of global fashion editors as well as singer Lady Gaga and her stylist Nicola Formichetti, who then commissioned Tex for a dress. Lady Gaga and the dress were eventually featured on the fashion pages of the American edition of Harper's Bazaar. More recently, Tex is known to have created the wedding dress worn by Katniss Everdeen, the character played by actress Jennifer Lawrence in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. Many mainstream media initially believed that the dress was designed by much more established Western fashion houses.

Tex Saverio is now set to embark on to the global fashion stage. Earlier in the year, Tex participated in an intense, year-long, incubation program called Indonesia Fashion Forward, which is organized by the JFW, British Council and Indonesia's Ministry for the Creative Economy and Tourism. The program also enrolls the technical expertise of the London based Centre of Fashion Enterprise.

"Tex is clearly one of the most hopeful examples of the success of the capacity building program called the Indonesian Fashion Forward which we at the Jakarta Fashion Week set up with the support of the Indonesian government. Both we and the government invest a lot of resources into this effort, to create a sustainable Indonesian fashion brand which can compete in the global arena. So we look forward for Tex to make his global breakthrough and we are confident that he will deliver," said Svida Alisjahbana, the Chairman of the organizing committee of the JFW.

The theme of his ready to wear collection is called Fantasy Made Reality. Though the collection clearly has the DNA of Tex Saverio, it will consist of looks made from separates with some pieces that can be actually worn in two different ways. If in the past one would never associate intricately made fashion with versatility; in Tex Saverio's universe, it's his fantasy made into our reality.
