Farah Angsana hits Paris catwalk

Last year in Carrousel du Louvre Paris, Farah Angsana presented her men's wear collection, in which the diverse ethnicity of Indonesia played a major part. The Medan-born designer used Sumatra tenun (weaving) in her belts, sarongs, Acehnese embroidery and silk Balinese sarongs.

Farah, a graduate of London's Central School of Fashion, reigned on the Paris catwalks on Jan. 28, and brought more global inspiration for her latest men's fall-winter 2003 ready-to-wear creations.

For her more simple but unique outfits, the 31-year-old designer used American cowboy style, Indian tribal head dress, Mexican ponchos and military-style suits. --JP
