The month of September is always one of the most exciting months of the year for Indonesia Tatler, because it means we present our special fashion issue. In these pages, we visit some of the most stylish catwalks and fashion-week features from far-flung locations like New York, London, Milan and Paris. This year, it also means that 27-year-old entrepreneur Dina Rimandra Handayani is our cover star. This well-balanced beauty founded the first cider brand in Indonesia and has already expanded it internationally to Australia and Singapore. A restless spirit, she is also planning on spreading her wings further afield and into new projects, as we find out when we talk about her career, dreams and even her love life. We also feature a stunning fashion spread with two of Asia’s biggest icons, former MTV VJs Sonia Couling and Utt (Asda Panichkul) from Thailand. They pose fabulously in our most exciting Fall/Winter collections from Indonesian designers. Meanwhile, in our Faces pages we feature an exclusive interview with our Minister of Tourism Arif Yahya and the Swedish Ambassador to Indonesia, HE Johanna Brismar Skoog. Food lovers don’t despair! We also bring to you a review of the classic and wonderful Japanese restaurant Iseya, with Rani Anggraini and Inggrid Kansil as guests. Enjoy reading and stay stylish!

October is a bit of a weird month, right? In the West, it marks the onset of winter; here, I’m sure that you’re praying for rain if you live in Jakarta. I’ve not seen the city so dry and dusty for a long time. Anyway, as always Indonesia Tatler is a reliable way to take your mind off the heat and find intellectual and inspiring respite, as well as style, grace, and even spiritual enlightenment. Following in this vein, our cover story this month, entitled “All of Me”, profiles the amazing life of Uci Flowdea, who has poured her heart into both her work in the timber industry and matters of a less-material and more-religious nature. Fittingly giving praise that God has blessed her with success in her chosen career path, she gives back to society and her Maker and thus fulfils the central tenet of most religions—by tending to the poor and hosting weekly prayer meetings for around 200 people. Many of us could do with taking a leaf out of her book, as the English idiom goes. The magazine is also packed with inspirational stories of other people, like Chef Nicola Affatati, who helms the kitchen at the Shangri-La Hotel, Surabaya’s Sapore Osteria restaurant. As you will read in “Viva Italia”, this talented cook hails from southern Italy and brings a splendid collection of family recipes to this brand-new restaurant. Meanwhile, we also chat with Patrick Vaysse of TAUZIA Hotel Management Indonesia, who shares with us his story of some 30 years spent in the hospitality industry. I’m also happy to see Nanda Haensel’s byline back in our pages. Our best travel writer hands-down gives us some pointers as to where some of Bali’s least-known treasures can be found in the aptly titled “Hidden Gems”.
