My kind of warrior

I dedicate today's post in commemorate to one of Indonesia women's hero named KARTINI. I believe most of my readers knows Kartini, she's the pioneer of women's rights in Indonesia. For her, women should have their freedom to study and she's one of the reason how us Indonesia women can express our voice nowadays. So i've been thinking to share you guys my kind of (fashion) warrior and here they are.
The founder of Nikicio label, I adore her ability to keep on designing timeless pieces. She said “ i want to challenge the notation of a fashion world. no trends. no seasons. no fads. my clothes have to be able to be worn & last forever.” And she did it. I have several Nikicio items, and my favorite is my paper dress.. It's not your regular fashion item. It's a fashion statement.
She's the reason why this blog exist. She's not an ordinary woman. Her unique and quirky taste got positive and negative comments. But Diana keep on shining and know she had her own shoe brand called I WEAR UP, which very describe her bubbly personality and she's not forget to give back to the community because for every pair we purchase, IDR 5.000 will goes to scholarship for low-income children. Amazing eh?
The free spirited woman, the brain behind ONLYi. I always enjoy her blog posts because it filled with her beautiful photography, art work and design. Talking about design, she just launched her Kartini collection. You can take a look here. Most of her design have an individual touch of her, which made each piece so personal and precious. 
I just post about fbudi pre fall 2013 collection to my blog, i guess i don't need to say much why Felicia is in this list. The high standard of craftsmanship is her strength, a love of texture and textiles enrich the final result. When you know how to appreciate an attainment properly then fbudi is the answer.
I met Iin at the office, when she still working as a fashion editor. Now Iin decided to concentrate to build OJA her accessory brand. For me OJA stands out among other accessory brand because of it's oddity, it's like screaming WEAR ME IF YOU DARE! Haha.. Each piece was made by her own hand.. And her newest collection is Manhattan. A clutch bag made from plastic. The motto is Fight Plastic With Plastic. So cool!!!

I hope by reading this, to all beautiful, nerd, geek, edgy, chic, etc people out there don't be afraid to be yourself, go on to be different, be true to yourself. Speak up! It will bring happiness to your life. Fighting!
