Soon after we started to gained interest from the fashion industry. We were very lucky to be featured in local media such as Gogirl!, Cosmo Girl, Grazia, ELLE Indonesia, Dewi, and Femina magazines. Our unique accessories were also spotted several times in local and foreign fashion blogs.
Thanks to the love we received from our customers, what started out as little accessory project quickly had to multiplied its production by twenty times in just two years. By taking advantage of online platform like Ebay, the line managed to peek through international market and after a while we started getting orders from customers around the world like USA, UK, Australia and even from countries like Latvia, Malta, and Solomon Island. Prompty the concept outgrew its former shell and not before long women clothing line was added to the label. It turns out later that this ready to wear becoming the primary business of the brand.
