The Local

30 March 2013


We all know about the importance of supporting local farmers and purveyors by attending farmers markets and buying from those who produce food here in our nation, the same goes for fashion. Buying local fashion labels helps support us all as a community and goes on to assist our city and nation’s economy. Admittedly, I buy plenty of clothes that come from all over the world, but some of my personal wardrobe staples are from local designers that really know how to make it work. There are so many great Indonesia based fashion brands, two of them are The Balletcats and Nikicio which I’m wearing in this post. Investing locally helps us think globally. It just does. Many say people either love Indonesia or hate it. I say love it and show it with style.
