Meet My Culture
April 22, 2022
My take for #MeetMyCulture22 ! The first prompt is a national costume. This is also a tribute to @npmalina ‘s #ProjectPuan ,100 portraits of Indonesian women. It’s an incredible project that aims to break the stereotypes and stigmas among women. I always admire her photography✨
Speaking of national costume, I believe it’s supposed to be kebaya. But, there are 34 provinces in Indonesia carry their beautiful traditional clothing worth knowing as well.
Bali always has a special place in my heart (I miss Ubud badly!), although I was born and grew up in Jakarta. This stylized Balinese look radiates the charm of Bali well 💙
Besides, the message shared by the model is a kind reminder for all of us (women) to see and value our inner beauty.
