"Lucky me, I am born and bred in the rich Balinese culture, and our environment is a never-ending source of inspiration for me."
"I was born in Denpasar, Bali, and I have been blessed with beautiful moments and with being surrounded by loving family and friends.
"Ever since I was a child, I have always been attracted to people wearing elegant outfits and accessories. It would make me want to have the same clothes, the same accessories, but our financial situation was tight so instead of buying them, I figured out a way of making them.
"As a teenager I designed and made my own outfits and my friends loved them! In fact, some of them started to purchase my designs. It feels so great to know that others appreciate my designs. Through this craft I can express my freedom through the colors, designs, and fabrics that suit my personality.
"I've never taken any formal design courses, it all began as a hobby and I love to do it for my friends and for myself. I keep updating my designs according to friends' comments, social trends, convenience, and comfort.
"I love to watch the trends in the latest designs and I try to apply my ideas with the latest designs. So from this stage, I gradually learn by watching and doing.
"The challenging part is when I design something new and different to keep it fresh and exciting. Color combinations, comfort, and easy to wear are the nicest elements in my designs.
"My dad is an independent entrepreneur in his field, and he always encouraged me to become an entrepreneur in the field I preferred. I love fashion. One day I hope to have a business of my own. Lucky me, I am born and bred in the rich Balinese culture, and our environment is a never-ending source of inspiration for me."
