Metrotvnews.com, Jakarta: Indonesian designer Diana Couture was chosen as the best designer for the 2016 spring collection of New York Couture Fashion Week in Crown Hotel, Times Square, Manhattan, Saturday, September 12, 2015.

Diana was chosen by the panel of judges through 15 collections of Garuda-themed couture clothing.

"Garuda is the symbol of our country. So, my designs are from all the details of Garuda, as the beak, feather, to how it flies. Everything was implemented in my designs," said Diana as quoted by VOA Indonesia.

Her collection did attract a number of invited guests, especially on the head jewelry combining special ornaments of Garuda crown with a touch of transparent golden-brown and distinctive Javanese Kebaya.

"I love the head jewelry. This is the first time I have ever seen Indonesian fashion. I love the Garuda inspiration. The designs were integrated and beautiful," said one of the guests, Britney Randon, a New York fashion blogger.

When interviewed by Fashion TV, America's top fashion media, Diana mentioned her joy when inaugurated as the Best Designer of 2016 spring collection.

"I did not expect to be chosen. I am very grateful," mentioned Diana.

She hoped Indonesian designers will be more famous in the world fashion industry.

"Lots of guests invited me to join the fashion week in their countries. Hopefully Indonesian fashion will be famous worldwide," she concluded.
