Margaret Vivi is a clas­sic Ori­en­tal beauty who is in­vited to all of most glam­orous par­ties in Jakarta. Her busi­ness mis­sion is “to pre­sent su­pe­rior beauty ser­vices that in­spire women to be­come more con­fi­dent”

Margaret Vivi, our glam­orous and per­fectly poised So­cialite of the Year, likes to get out and about. this clas­sic Ori­en­tal beauty can be spot­ted at many of the hottest par­ties in Jakarta. “i en­joy go­ing to events that have an elegant am­bi­ence, par­ties that at­tract a sig­nif­i­cant amount of in­ter­est in the en­ter­tain­ment or busi­ness in­dus­tries,” says the wife of Hartono Hosea, founder of Ho­tel ac­cor group in in­done­sia and Direc­tor of Sun Mo­tor, and mother of Karen Ven­dela Hosea, aged 19, and War­ren Sun­doro Hosea, 13.

“For me, all of the par­ties i go to are amaz­ing,” Vivi con­tin­ues. “this is be­cause i can meet my friends and ex­pe­ri­ence dif­fer­ent mo­ments in the party. i am lucky enough to have some fa­mous in­done­sian de­sign­ers to help me cre­ate the dresses i wear to par­ties. But i also need to suit their de­signs with the match­ing theme and dress code. Like other en­trepreneurs, my time is fairly pre­cious. So i try to make sure that the net­work­ing events i go to are rel­e­vant and that they will help me achieve both my busi­ness and my per­sonal goals.”

Vivi is the smart busi­ness­woman be­hind the Jean Yip group beauty brand in in­done­sia. Her mis­sion is “to pre­sent su­pe­rior beauty ser­vices that in­spire women to be­come more con­fi­dent in their own skin”. She plans to de­velop and up­grade the treat­ment tech­nolo­gies and sys­tems at her Jean Yip sa­lons at Mall Pon­dok in­dah 2 and Mall Ke­lapa gad­ing 3 dur­ing 2015. Staffed by trained pro­fes­sion­als, these are one-stop beauty care sa­lons that pro­vide a com­pre­hen­sive range of hair­dress­ing, beauty and slim­ming ser­vices, in­clud­ing roller skin ther­apy, oxy­gen ther­apy re­ju­ve­na­tion, the r6 Skin re­o­vo­lu­tion sys­tem, slim­ming and body con­tour­ing, and the therma tight rf Skin and Body Shap­ing Sys­tem. the brand was founded in Sin­ga­pore in 1982.

“ev­ery woman, no mat­ter what her age, de­sires beau­ti­ful and healthy skin, and i see that as a good prospect for me to ex­plore op­por­tu­ni­ties in the beauty busi­ness,” says Vivi. “i want Jean Yip to al­ways be the su­pe­rior brand in the in­done­sian beauty in­dus­try. and i also want to ex­pand my busi­ness. in the fu­ture, i plan to co­op­er­ate with a doc­tor from South Korea in open­ing an aes­thetic surgery in Jakarta.”

Suc­cess­ful in busi­ness, Vivi does not for­get to give back. “Jean Yip Salon is known for its so­cial re­spon­si­bil­ity projects in Sin­ga­pore, and we are work­ing on sev­eral projects here in in­done­sia,” she notes. “We are help­ing vic­tims of floods in ru­ral ar­eas re­cover their lives, and there are a nurs­ing home foun­da­tion and an or­phan­age that i sup­port. i want to help chil­dren who are liv­ing in poverty and give them op­por­tu­ni­ties to have a bet­ter life.”

Vivi is a gifted party or­gan­iser in her own right. “the big­gest party i have ever or­gan­ised was Karen’s ‘Sweet Seven­teen’ birth­day party at Pull­man Jakarta Cen­tral Park,” she tells us. “We turned the ball­room into an un­der­wa­ter world. the en­trance to the ball­room be­came a gi­gan­tic aquatic cor­ri­dor with fishes swim­ming around. even the birth­day cake was very aquatic, with a sea shell put on top of it. What was in­ter­est­ing was that, even though the stage was play­fully dec­o­rated, the ball­room was elegant and showed a sense of ma­tu­rity. it was like a sym­bol of Karen’s jour­ney from teenager to adult. Per­son­ally, there are no bet­ter high­lights than be­ing to­gether with my fam­ily in a festive mo­ment. as the year is com­ing to a close, the mem­bers of my fam­ily will be com­plete. My daugh­ter, who stud­ies abroad, will be com­ing back to in­done­sia and we can cel­e­brate Christ­mas and New Year to­gether.”

Fi­nally, what are Vivi’s tips for host­ing the per­fect party? “i think what makes an un­for­get­table party is some­thing that cre­ates mean­ing in our hearts,” she replies. “When i’m de­vel­op­ing themes and con­cepts, i rake ideas from my past ex­pe­ri­ences and from hav­ing at­tended so many spec­tac­u­lar events, like the Pres­tige gala. My main ad­vice is that you should be ad­ven­tur­ous and never stop learn­ing about new things. You must pre­pare well and fo­cus on your ca­pa­bil­i­ties. For ex­am­ple, if you are a hu­mor­ous per­son, try to de­velop a theme with hu­mour. You must en­joy your­self at your own party - but don’t for­get to stop be­hind the safety line!”
