Rinaldy A. Yunardi

Madonna, Nicki Minaj, Cher, and Lady Gaga. These world-renowned Divas are but a few famous names who have worn an eccentric headpiece designed by the well-known Indonesian accessory designer, Rinaldy A. Yunardi. The variety of achievements that this man, nicknamed Yungyung, have attained go a lot towards uplifting Indonesia's name in the international fashion scene. He managed all these while being a high school graduate with zero formal education in fashion. He did not even start his career in the fashion world, as Yungyung was working at his older sibling's company. It began a few years later when he worked with Kim Thong, a wedding gown and crown designer. Yungyung's talent to design tiaras slowly started to grow as he diligently explored various materials like acrylic, sequin, wire, or anything that he deems unique. Not just tiaras, Yungyung is also highly capable of designing other accessories, including necklaces, bracelets, rings, and experimental headpieces that use all sorts of materials. His friendship with designers like Didi Budiardjo, Sebastian Gunawan, and Era Soekamto results in collaborations that add to his fame.
