THERE’S NO BET­TER time to cel­e­brate the power of In­done­sia’s her­itage in eth­nic fab­rics than now. For this is­sue we brought to­gether five of our favourite so­cialites to talk about why they love the ke­baya and why they have so much re­spect for some of their favourite In­done­sian cou­turi­ers and fash­ion de­sign­ers.

Ayu Rosan tells us why she is never hap­pier than when she is wear­ing a ke­baya. She tells us, in par­tic­u­lar, about her ad­mi­ra­tion for the late Iwan Tirta’s legacy. Ac­tress Laura Basuki says “ev­ery time he dresses me up, the re­sult is fan­tas­tic” about the cre­ativ­ity of Eddy Betty, mas­ter of In­done­sia haute cou­ture.

Movie star Mar­sha Ti­mothy loves wear­ing homegrown de­sign­ers on the in­ter­na­tional red car­pet, es­pe­cially if it’s one of Biyan’s won­drous creations. Lawyer Jessie Setiono says Didiet Maulana’s del­i­cate mas­ter­pieces makes her why she is proud to be an In­done­sian.

“It took me a long time to get on to so­cial me­dia ...even­tu­ally, I did it and I’m en­joy­ing it now. I’ve found my own voice” Our cover this month, the star of the new Mis­sion: Im­pos­si­ble – Fall­out, Henry Cav­ill, tells us about his new­found love of so­cial me­dia and his char­ity works.

On the sub­ject of power and pride in In­done­sia and its achieve­ments, we have in­ter­viewed some of the na­tion’s “Power Ti­tans”. Run­ning the na­tional air­line is surely one of the most com­plex lead­er­ship tasks imag­in­able. Pahala Nugraha Mansury, who stepped into the CEO hot seat at Garuda In­done­sia last year, met with me for an ex­clu­sive in­ter­view.

Lestari Moerdijat, Deputy Chair­man of Me­dia Group, has held top po­si­tions in more than 15 com­pa­nies. “I’ve al­ways em­braced new things and op­por­tu­ni­ties,” she in­forms us. Blue Bird Di­rec­tor Adrianto Djokosoetono tells us that he hopes the fam­ily- owned business will go in­ter­na­tional within the next five years.
