Raffles Institute Jakarta currently is making its way to be the leading fashion design programme provider in Indonesia. This can be seen from the high enthusiasm of the students and alumni of Raffles in participating in various prestigious competitions organized by credible institutions.
One of the competitions was AMICA Fashion Design Competition 2013. A nationwide competition organized by AMICA Magazine, an international fashion and lifestyle magazine. This year competition was held at Kota Casablanka on May 30th, 2013 and inspired by the beauty and richness ofIndonesian culture, shapes, colors and Indonesia’s flora and fauna.
Among the 200 participants, AMICA judges had selected the Top 10 Finalist! From the Top 10 Finalists, three were from Raffles. They were Maria Valentine Lydia (a current Raffles Jakarta student) with her “Metropoles Heritage” collection, Diana Nathania (a Raffles Jakarta alumni) with the theme “Petani Indonesia” and Deah Patricia (a Raffles Singapore alumni) with the theme “Allure of Srikandi”. The judges, including Amica Magazine's Editor In Chief and famous fashion designer Eddy Betty, chose Diana Nathania's outstanding collection for the Top 3 out of the Top 10 Finalists.
