Tex Saverio (born 1984) is an Indonesian fashion designer who was born in Jakarta.[1]

In September 2005, Saverio won a national award in the Mercedes-Benz Asia Fashion Award, which qualified him to compete against other Southeast Asian designers the following year.[2] His winning collection presented clothes that were designed to be worn by both men and women.[2] He left senior school after a year in order to pursue a fashion design career, enrolling at the Bunka Fashion School in Jakarta and then taking on an apprenticeship at the Phalie Studio.[2]

Since then, Saverio's work has been worn by international celebrities such as Ayumi Hamasaki (the dress worn in the music video of How Beautiful You Are),[3] Lady Gaga (who chose to wear Saverio for her Lady Gaga Fame advertising campaign) and Kim Kardashian.[4] Lady Gaga was photographed in a sheer black laser-cut and sequined Saverio dress called 'La Glacon' for Harper's Bazaar in 2011.[1][4][5] The dramatic metal-and-chiffon wedding dress which Jennifer Lawrence wears in advance publicity material for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire film was designed by Saverio.[4] He has been described as the "Alexander McQueen of Indonesia".[4]
