“But I also realise that material things will not bring true happiness. It’s love that matters the most”
After taking a break from the fashion industry, Sally Koeswanto made a sweet comeback in 2015. Known as a passionate fashion designer in Indonesia, she is very much into good taste, technique and details when it comes to work. But above everything that she’s achieved in her career, Sally always puts her family on top of her priority list.
The fashion designer enjoys her role as a wife and mother. Her finest moment is when she spends her time with them. “We spend time together at the dining table most of the time, talking about our days. And we also like trying new restaurants in town or abroad when we’re travelling. It’s simple but meaningful.”
Taking care of her family doesn’t mean Sally forgets about herself. She knows that pleasing herself is important in creating balance in her life, “I always find ways to pamper myself, for example with beauty treatments or by going shopping with my daughter, who has an interest in fashion as well.”
“But I also realise that material things will not bring true happiness. It’s love that matters the most. Learning from people in my circle that have been through a lot in life has given me more understanding about the meaning of ‘Love’. Disagreements might happen any time in the family but we always have to remember that to love and forgive are two of the most important things we must do to keep our family living in harmony. Time is something precious that everyone must share with their loved ones, because when you give someone your time, you are giving them a portion of your life.”
