No stranger to Hollywood celebrities, Rinaldy A. Yunardi became the talk of the town in both international and local media when legendary diva Madonna wore his creations – a crown and a rosary necklace – at the prestigious Met Gala 2018 in New York. Recently, he once again made the news when he worked on the Asian Games 2018 opening ceremony wardrobe design. “I was tremendously happy and proud as it was a (huge) project for my beloved nation and country. For now, The Clique (with a fashion wardrobe project for TV programme “Shake It Up” in China) and my bridal business are the centre of my attention,” he said.
A bright star in the sky, Rinaldy is forever a humble person. He does not always have all the time in the world, but with good time management, he has control of his life and always makes time for his family and friends. “They are my emotional support system. It’s always enjoyable to spend time with them.” Meanwhile when he needs time for himself, Rinaldy simply does meditation. “I enjoy meditation exercise where God talks to me and I talk to God. It’s also the moment when I can recentre my mind and soul to be more creative.”
Some people see the fashion industry as a tough world, but Rinaldy sees it as a playground to grow, “This is my life, my love, and I am beyond happy that my work and expression of creativity bring value and inspiration to Indonesia and the world.” Rinaldy A.
