Hian Tjen was born and raised in Pemangkat, a small town in West Kalimantan. His dream to enter the fashion world pushed him to continue his studies at ESMOD Jakarta upon graduating high school. Once he finished his fashion education in 2003, he immediately worked for a retail company as a designer. Then, after five years, Hian Tjen decided to build his own label and chose to focus on luxurious gowns that cater to the clients' demands. As a fashion designer and entrepreneur, Hian admits that selling clothes is a way for designers to keep on creating. However, his idealism still concurs that business must go hand in hand with creating works that completely fulfills one's imagination.
