Two Indonesian Designers Were Featured in This Year’s Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show

This year’s prestigious Victoria’s Secret fashion show held at the Grand Palais in Paris last Wednesday not only featured multiple Asian models, but also the works of two talented Asian designers.  

Designs of Tex Saverio and Rinaldy A. Yunardi, both from Indonesia, have been prominently showcased in the biggest event in the fashion world, reported the Jakarta Post.

Wings and shoulder pieces created by the designers were worn on the catwalk by the show’s lovely angels.

In the Dark Angel segment of the show, Brazilian model Izabel Goulart was shown wearing the elegantly crafted wings designed by Tex. The wings perfectly suited the model’s black lace lingerie.

Rinaldy’s wing creation, garbed with black curved feathers, was worn by American model Devon Windsor as she strutted on the catwalk. The outfit was completed with leather boots and sexy black lace lingerie.

According to Rinaldy, the wings took him three months to make. 

“I’m surely grateful,” he told Liputan6.com. “I was taking care of this and that in Indonesia when I suddenly received information that this accessory was worn during the Victoria’s Secret [fashion show]. I am happy.”

This year’s Victoria’s Secret fashion show was marked with several highlights, including memorable performances by Lady Gaga, The Weeknd and Bruno Mars and the display of the $3 million Fantasy bra, modeled by Jasmine Tookes.
