Undergarment History and Women Empowerment

BY FLORA HARTO
@ VOL 20 ON DEC 12, 2014

Inherited passion and talent from her fashion designer mother, Flora Harto inspired to embrace fashion industry, particulary in the field of "intimate apparel". Flo believes that the confidence of a woman starts from within (in this case, including undergarment). After finishing college in New York and worked for Victoria's Secret in 2005, Flo decided to return to his homeland to manage the family company, as well as campaigning for women's rights and empowerment. Now, intimate apparel such as corsets is no longer the symbol of oppression, but can be used as self confidence and/or anti gender based violence campaign.
