24Fashion TV had a chance to sit down for an interview with a celebrity designer, Diana Putri, she is known for dressing celebrities such as Ariana Grande, Carrie Underwood, Carmen Electra, Camila Cabello, Janet Jackson and many others.
24Fashion TV: When did you first realize you wanted to pursue a career as a fashion designer?
I was a young mother who had a passion for fashion. Every time I went to a store, however, nothing fully satisfies me. I started making my own pieces, pieces that inspire me and made me felt confident and truly myself. It became a word of mouth and next thing you know, I honed my skills and really studied fashion through learning (I never went to school for it). Im beyond lucky to be able to do what I love for a living.
What is your favorite part about being a designer?
Being able to make the woman I dress feel beautiful, confident, and powerful. The best versions of themselves
Where do you usually find creative inspiration for your new collection?
Im heavily inspired by Indonesian culture, women empowerment, and nature. I think balancing my inspiration with wearability, anatomy, and my target market are key to creating my pieces.

What is fashion to you?
Fashion is truly a form of expression. You can tell a lot about someone through the way they dress, I want the women I dress to always glow and radiate positive and confident energy when they wear Diana Couture.
