I am Carina

Fashion Consultant and Art Director

An Indonesian born dreamer / coffee drinker
 
Ever since I saw a Sebastian Gunawan fashion show at the age of 5, I fell in love with fashion. Growing up in Asia where a lot of attention is given to tech and medical fields, fashion was considered a bad choice by my parents. Yet, I never gave up. I studied fashion and now I work in fashion. Fashion is a big part of my life. 
 
Now as a creative to be inspired is a challenge. I believe every little thing I see, hear, touch, smell or taste can serve as a source of inspiration. This is why I strongly believe that creativity has no limits. Through well crafted, quality garments, we have the opportunity to use fashion as an art of communication.
