Hot in the tropics

It was sizzling hot last night in Jakarta as the British Women's Association BWA put on a show of latest fashions by Indonesian designers and many outstanding models displayed the clothing. Both female and male models were all volunteers and were from over 30 different countries.

The 26th Annual Fashion show was held in the Shangri-La Hotel and it was black suit and tie affair for men and most of the women were in long dresses or gowns and looked so beautiful. It was a wonderful evening and a superb meal was served before the fashion show. The whole show from the top down was created by BWA Members: Producers, Models, Backstage crew, Choreographers, Graphic Designers. I went because Naila my wife was one of the models, and I also wanted to help raise funds for local organisations working with vulnerable people in Jakarta.

As the proceeds go to local charities and the producers and their dedicated teams worked hard to make sure it made as much profit as is possible, whilst still providing the best in entertainment.

Here are some photos I took last night.

A memorable evening of fun, beauty, good music, food, laughter, and at the end of it, a number of local humanitarian organisation will have more funding for their deserving projects. Tomorrow I am off to Medan in North Sumatra and then fly into the remote island of Nias where, since the Tsunami and earthquake in 2004, we have build many houses, have a huge water and sanitation programme as well as a large primary health care programme delivered through Indonesian Red Cross volunteers.

Yes, it is hot in the tropics and the beach is never far away in Indonesia to cool off in, especially after a sizzling evening described above.

Kia ora Bob,
looks like an awesome evening with lots of very attractive ladies!
on a serious note was wondering how involved you might be with this latest tidal wave devastation in Burma, and if so, god speed and best of wishes.
Rangimarie,
Robb

Oh what a beautiful show. Fashion shows were a part of my life when I was young My parents had a clothing shop, so we held and went to many.
But I have never seen such beautiful dresses and your wife is very beautiful as well.
Hopefully they raised a lot of money

Thanks for your comments Marja. I felt a bit shy writing about a fashion how but then a blog should be about what you do, feel and see.

Yes a lot of money was raised and is going to a number of organisation working with slum dwellers in Jakarta.

Interested your parent had a clothing shop and you went to many fashion shows.

Take care and I must say I enjoy your blog.
