A gown by young Indonesian designer, Tex Saverio, adorns Lady Gaga in the May edition of Harper’s Bazaar magazine.
Gaga’s stylist Nicola Formichetti announced it on his Twitter account that Gaga was donning the unique gown by Tex Saverio, also known as Rio, for the fashion spread.
In the photo published on Harper’s Bazaar’s Web site, Gaga wears the transparent black gown with ornate detailing.
On average, a piece by Rio goes for Rp 15 million ($1,700), and the gown worn by Gaga is priced at Rp 33 million.
Rio first burst onto the scene at a joint fashion show called Rejuvenate in July 2010, sending shock waves through the Jakarta fashion world and the international fashion blogging community.
Tex Saverio likes to experiment to produce his one-of-a-kind gowns. So far, he has adorned his gowns with feathers and faux leather with ornate details crafted by graphic designers. His style embraces a melange of technological and theatrical techniques.
