"Of Adam's first wife, Lilith, it is told,
(The witch he loved before the gift of Eve,)
That, ere the snake's, her sweet tongue could deceive,
And her enchanted hair was the first gold.
And still she sits, young while the earth is old,
And, subtly of herself contemplative,
Draws men to watch the bright web she can weave,
Till heart and body and life are in its hold.
The rose and poppy are her flowers; for where
Is he not found, O Lilith, whom shed scent,
And soft-shed kisses and soft sleep shall snare?
Lo! as that youth's eyes burned at thine, so went
Thy spell through him, and left his straight neck bent
And round his heart one strangling golden hair."
- Dante Gabrielle Rossetti, 1868 -

Eric Chang is a photographer and film director. The son of a sculptor and a ceramic designer, he spent his early years in his parent's workshop writing poetry, sketching with charcoals, and sculpting gypsum.
He found his stepping-stone to pursue the medium of photography when viewing an exhibition by fellow Indonesian photographer, Indra Leonardi. One photograph in this exhibit titled “Madonna and Child” captured his imagination, and inspired him to use his dad’s old rangefinder camera.
In 1994, the world started taking notice of a young and athletic Californian, with a punk look, anti-conformist personality penchant for black leather, hard rock, goth, Vogue Paris and has a real passion for all forms of art...
The world was talking about Rick Owens, a designer whose talent the international fashion community saluted and for whom they quickly coined the term "glunge" to describe his style, halfway between glamour and grunge.
His name achieved an international reputation in 2001 when his label was promoted by his Italian agency Eo Bocci Associati. Rick Owens has kept moving and his collections remain faithful to his image, as an off the beaten path designer. He fine-tunes his style, always close to the goth culture, with a strong predominance of black, grey and leather, his fetish material.His consecration came when Kate Moss made the front page of the French issue of Vogue, dressed in one of his leather jackets.
He was born in Seoul, raised in Tokyo, and studied music in Boston and Los Angeles with the emphasis on cinematic composing where he had the opportunity to study with Hollywood composers such as Christopher Young and Bruce Broughton. Having been raised in various cultural backgrounds he has been widely exposed to a variety of musical influences and considers himself not to be bound by a specific genre.
D's formal musical training began with the violin and then went onto further gaining knowledge and skills on other instruments such as guitar, drums, trumpet and piano. Returning back to the violin in high school he was recognized as the district's most improved player.
In the era that is constantly changing he has hopes and dreams of transforming people's lives through his ever evolving music. He currently lives in Los Angeles working for various films and assisting production tracks for Sonoton music library based in Munich, Germany. Aside from composing, he enjoys meeting filmmakers, art exhibitions, photography and Japanese food.
Dancer & Choréographer
Nathania Alvita is a dancer, choreographer & stage manager born in Jakarta, Indonesia. She trained as a dancer from the age of seven. Her style technique evolve around that of ballet, contemporary, hip-hop, traditional balinese and argentine tango.
During a summer program at the Alvin Ailey school in New York, she fell in love with modern contemporary dance. In continuation, she went and trained full time at the Martha Graham School of Dance where her love and compassion toward the arts of movement shaped and transformed her character and the way she envisioned her creative imagination of choreography today.
She is vastly open to new artistic ventures and experiments with all sorts of medium and collaborating them with the art of movement. Nathania experiments a lot by fusing different styles of dance in a mission to create a new evolution in the dance world.
At 14, Pugh began working as a costume designer for the English National Youth Theater. He started his fashion education at City of Sunderland College and finished his degree in Fashion Design at Central Saint Martins in 2003.
He interned with Rick Owens in Paris.His final collection at St. Martins, which used balloons to accentuate models' joints and limbs (a technique that would become one of his trademarks), attracted the attention of the senior fashion editor of Dazed & Confused magazine, who placed one of his designs on the magazine's cover shortly thereafter.
Pugh's solo premiere was in London's Fall 2006 fashion week; he has since showed his Spring 2007 and Autumn 2007 collections there. Pugh's shows have continued to draw critical praise. British Vogue, for instance, called his Spring 2007 collection "an incredible, unmissable show" and said that "his genius is undeniable." Anna Wintour is a notable supporter of Pugh's designs.
Bold and daring. That is the mental approach of Art Director, George Widodo. He started his autodidactic training as an art director in Jakarta since 2008. He was first discovered by his long-time collaborator, Eric Chang, to work with him on a personal project along with a tear-sheet for Tatler Magazine - before regularly contributing to the magazine.
He followed through his passion in art directing by pursuing an Advertising degree at the prestigious Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California, graduating with high honors in 2015.
His passion for art directing has led him to work in the fine arts and commercial/advertising industry. His work has been recognized by top-tier ad agencies - working for the Martin Agency, Mother New York and Mullen Lowe just to name a few.
He has worked for diversed clients such as the New York Knicks, Sunglass Hut, Kayak.com, Giovanni Rana, White Pike Whiskey, Oscar Health Insurance, Tanqueray Gin, Acura, Patron Spirits, KIA Motors, California Lottery, Vizio and NY/NY Hotel & Casino.
