female Indonesia featured Sapto Djojokartiko on their “Fashion Beat” section where in the article you can learn that the designer who spent his childhood in Solo, Central Java landed a scholarship for fashion school Esmod Jakarta in 1997 and he almost got expelled.
He was Oscar Lawalatta’s assistant designer, a costume designer and a makeup artist before finding his passion to be a womenswear designer. He was partnered with Reshna for a clothing line in 2000 until 2007.
His turning point was when actress and his best friend, Dian Sastrowardoyo (she helped Sapto to applied sequins) wore his designs and introduced to her friends. Editorial shoots and custom made dresses requests increasing ever since.
