Best of Indonesia: Tex Saverio
Tex Saverio is world-renowned Indonesian designer, known for his amazing creation that is the wedding dress for Katniss Everdeen in "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire". A similar dress was presented from his collection at Jakarta Fashion Week in November 2010. Feast your eyes on the Capitol Couture.
Katniss' bridal dress is covered in Swarovski crystals, the metal cage is extended to signify fire and the voluminous skirt is covered in Mockingjay-esque chiffon, which is very suited to the costume designer, Caesar Flickerman's request, for the twirling and spinning Katniss does on stage.
