In 2009–when I was in high school, I found a good place called ORE. Guess, it was the first premium store in Surabaya that I really admire. I visited almost everyday, since it’s very close from my school. By the time, after I graduated and went to a college, I met Rama Dicandra–a good friend who introduced me to the Founder, Alek Kowalski and I suddenly involve in several projects with them. It’s been a pleasure to working on fashion industry with people I adore.
In last October, I was asked to represent ORE to attend an invitation from Daegu Fashion Fair 2015 as buyer in South Korea. I’d like to thank you to the inspiring couple Alek and Dewi for giving me this opportunity.
The most significant brand I found there was Modiano, they have a really good quality of fabric and also great design in every pieces, yet unfortunately they produce men’s wear only.
My personal favourite from the winner of NEXTGEN Designer Awards ; Soulpot Studio.
Our super kind host invited us to join a Korean Barbecue along with another buyer from Paris, Shanghai and Korea. Such a lovely experience 🙂
