Take a sneak peek of what’s inside the latest issue of Prestige

Editor’s Letter

Example to Us All


Each year, in the Prestige It List, we honour a few outstanding individuals that have inspired us in some important way in the last 12 months, whether it’s in the fields of business and entrepreneurship, philanthropy, the social scene, art, entertainment or sports.

Our Socialite of the Year, Irna Mareta, is always on the go, constantly juggling work and social activities. Her number one priority, however, is her children. “Since they were young, I created a democratic environment in the house, because I find it’s important to let my children explore their potential to the fullest,” she tells us.

Cindy Angelina, our Fashion Icon, engaged us in an absorbing conversation about style, fashion designers, shopping, vegan cosmetics and adorable puppies. “I used to be very big on dark colours. If you saw my closet back then, it would be all black! But right now, my style is quite feminine,” she declares.

Karen Vendela, this year’s Prestige It Girl, is a smart, confident and sociable young woman – an artist, graphic designer and budding entrepreneur with her own YouTube channel, a strong sense of humility and a great big heart.

“Taking action, getting our hands dirty, is the only way we can achieve our life’s mission, fulfilling the meaning of our existence,” says YCAB founder Veronica Colondam in an inspiring interview about her new memoir, Journey to Impact, and her work to protect children from the scourge of drug addiction.

On the subject of memoirs, perfect for any fashionista’s coffee table is Sebastian Gunawan’s Whisper/Roar. The highly exclusive limited-edition volume tells the story of the beloved couturier’s first 25 years in the world of fashion design.

Elsewhere in this year’s It List, we meet Jetski champions and brothers Aero and Aqsa Aswar, actors Vino Bastian and Sherina, and choreographer Eko Supriyanto.

As always, there is much, more to read in our final issue of the year. In addition, we publish another issue of Prestige Living this month. Happy reading, and please see our latest subscription offer on page 180 to make sure you don’t miss a single issue in 2019. We’re not just available in print, of course, but also online at, and you can follow our social media updates on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter.
