HighEnd IBW 2018: Report

With a mantra “When women support each other, incredible things happen,” the annual event of Indonesia’s Beautiful Women arises as an inspirational podium for women to share their experience together.

The Indonesia’s Beautiful Women intimate dinner awarding night won’t reach its success without our partner AXA Financial Indonesia. Also from the support from our co-sponsors SAMKIM skincare and cosmetics, UBS gold and jewelry, The Hermitage, as well as Hello Beauty in providing the magic hands of their makeup artists and hair stylists. This year’s celebration feels special because HighEnd is collaborating with AXA Financial Indonesia that just launched its newest insurance product, Maestro Prestige Link.

Held at the The Hermitage, the event celebrates successful achievements of the 15 awe-inspiring figures. They give inspiration with their own flairs in different types of industries.

They are Eugenie Patricia, Co-Founder and Brand & Culture Director of Puyo Desserts; Eliana Putri Antonio, founder and designer of EPA JEWEL; and Adinda Kuntadi, co-owner of culinary and entertainment venues All In Group. Then, there are Lizzie Parra, beauty influencer and founder of BLP Beauty; Jenahara Nasution, Creative Director of modest fashion brand JENAHARA; Daisy Musin; the Retail Director of Masari Group Indonesia; Karen Carlotta, chef and chain owner of UNION Group; and Angela Tanoesoedibjo, Managing Director of GTV and Director of MNC Group.

HighEnd also honors the women who inspire people in the entertainment industry. We awarded actress Velove Vexia, Miss Indonesia 2017 Achintya Nilsen, and Balinese multifaceted artist Ayu Laksmi. The list goes with Elizabeth Rahajeng, TV host of E! News Asia, and Cinta Laura Kiehl, Hollywood rookie. The list completes with women in creative industry: visual artist Talitha Maranila and interior designer and JIE Design founder Yuni Jie.

These beautiful women grace the stage with a special acknowledgment from our Chairwoman Liliana Tanoesoedibjo. The event was enlivened by contemporary ballet performance by Forever Dance Center, accompanied by the soothing melody from Archipelagio Orchestra and Music, and also, a fashion trunk show from Vera Kebaya by eminent designer Vera Anggraini and showcased by the 2018 Miss Indonesia finalists.
