Last Monday saw Rafi return to Jakarta after a successful and fun trip to Melbourne to appear in Festival Indonesia’s fashion shows.  He held six shows overall showcasing his childrenswear designs and womenswear collection that was made especially for his first International showing.

I had the pleasure of photographing the garments before their trip and love the way that Rafi is able to mix and match traditional fabrics and colours for a rainbow collection on the runway.

Wishing you continued success always Rafi!
