Founder’s Foreword

As the fourth largest population in the world (with 66% being of a productive age) fashion is one industry where Indonesia has a huge potential. The growth of Indonesia’s national apparel industry is currently estimated to be billions in USD. Indonesia needs to leverage this opportunity by taking advantage of its amazing and diverse heritage, manufacturing power and fashion supply chain. This will enable Indonesia to compete with the foreign brands and become a leading international fashion powerhouse. As the role of the local fashion designer will greatly affect the realisation of these opportunities, serious professional training and education is highly needed in the industry.

  1. Passion – we  motivate our students to enjoy and love what they are doing because “when love and skill work together it will create a masterpiece”.
