Vivi Zubedi for NYFW 2018

Super excited to welcome another brilliant Indonesian Fashion Designer to New York City, especially to NYFW 2018!

This time we have Vivi Zubedi, a famous hijab designer from Indonesia, joining those emerging designers for one of the world’s most-wanted-and-sought fashion show. Proudly presenting Urang Banua, Vivi is back with strong message: Women Empowerment! As Vivi traveled to the remote area in South Kalimantan, she met many strong, inspiring women producing the hand-woven Sasirangan and Tenun Pagatan, which became the main fabrics used in Vivi’s collections for NYFW 2018.

Untukmu, Banua! Vivi Zubedi for NYFW 2018

Purple power

Gosh I don’t know how long I haven’t updated my page here in :).

It’s been too long indeed but better late than never, right

So, here’s to the purple power I have beautifully arranged on my desk this morning. Brighten up my day in this crazily cold Friday morning. The weather in NYC just dived down to subzero now. So, stay warm, folks.

Cheers from 2017 TCS NYC Marathon

Cheeeeers :p

Volunteering Time! at 2017 TCS NYC Marathon!

Yuuup..the famous Marathon in town!

I have never dreamed of running any race or tournament, let alone joining marathon. I guess I am going to need 10 years or more for practices before joining one hehehe. But since last year, I tried 5K and joined the UN Run or Abbott Dash to the Finish Line. I have to admit I enjoyed it! I never thought I have enough courage (and extra energy) to do so.

And this year, I also managed to volunteer at Marshall Zone 3 at the Finish Line for 2017 TCS NYC Marathon! It was truly an experience of a life time and there I was with Erma et Angie who also joined the volunteer.
