Namirah The Label by Tantri Namirah is undoubtedly the new sun in Indonesia's fashion industry. It embraces the monochrome colour into its design for an eclectic look. Namirah, or known by nickname Nay, is a firm believer of hard-work. With her mom's support, she began her career by being a fashion stylist for one of popular Indonesia's Fashion magazine. Then as soon as she created her own brand, she also plunged into the production process to be the Art director too.
What attracts us about her is the sheer and solid courage she has to build her career choice, to steeped in something that don't match her educational background. And we truly believe, her brave heart can inspire more women to cross the line and step forward!
Here is our full (and very candid) interview with her.
Le' Motion (L) :What word that pops up your head when you think of Fashion?
Namirah (N) : Fashion is free. Fashion is when you can explore yourself.
L : What made you dare to dive into the world of fashion?
N : Fashion is fun. Fashion is art. Fashion is a character. And everyone expresses themselves through different styles
L : After all these years, who is one figure that inspires you the most?
N :Biyan and Yohji Hamamoto.
L : Then, how do you define your own style?
N : Well I'd say sporty, or edgy look, and sometimes boyish, too.
L : So who is one figure that constantly inspire you to be brave?
N : Its my mom and it'll always be her. I learnt a lot from her own experience. One time, she was a lecturer back then, and she quitted her job and being a full time supportive mother at Jakarta. She is the best kind of mother anyone could ask for cause she is the one who inspire me to be brave.
L : What about yourself? Did your fears ever stop you from doing anything?
N : It is always seem impossible every time I think of my desire and pursue my dream to study fashion designing as my parents don't agree. Thats why I studied business as thats what they wanted me to.
L : Then what pushes you to get over your fears?
N : My dream that doesn't fade. I know that I could have and should have done more to really thrive my dream. I was thinking to myself, "I need to do it now!"
L : Is there any goals in life that you havent achieved yet?
N : Yes. I want my life to be perceived as an inspiration to a lot of people.
L : So how do you feel about yourself after all?
N : I feel absolutely free. Because I believe it takes courage to take a risk and it takes a risk to make a change. :)
