I am Ivone. You can call me Eve, and I am an Indonesian based in Bavaria, Germany. I started my affair with fashion when I was 23. Working as a model introduced me to a shoe company, which later on became my supplier for my shoe shop in Indonesia. Then I went on to open my first boutique, working closely with a talented young designer. After two years of running my businesses, I packed my bags, left my home, my Golden Retriever and moved to the capital city of Jakarta to study fashion.
During my time at Esmod (and later on Marie Claire Indonesia), I found out that I enjoy styling. It surely had started when I was running my boutique. The time at fashion school just confirmed it. 2010 marked the time when I thought about having my blog as a channel to document my personal style, my travel and everything else I found inspiring.
However, it wasn't until I moved to Germany a couple of years ago, that I started. After trial and error, changing platforms and a big bowl of fears, terriblychic.me was born.
Between assisting a brilliant Managing Director for an internet company, wiping my floors when I am back to my base or tackling my visual design lessons, basically everywhere else I might be while being a digital nomad, I would be here blabbing.
Write me anything. Let's talk. And I hope you enjoy this blog as much as I do.
last but not least
MEET SURA AND cinta
I am a proud adoptive parent of an orangutan named Sura since last year, and just finalised an adoption of another one named Cinta earlier this year. Sura was four months old when he lost his mother and three fingers. The wound on his fingers seemed to have been caused by machete or knife. They brought him to Nyaru Menteng, one of Borneo Orang Utan Survival Foundation's location in Indonesia. After intensive care, Sura is now a healthy young orangutan. He recently promoted from Nursery Group to Forest School Group!
Cinta was three to five months old when she was rescued on Valentine's Day. According to the local people, the orangutan was found by an area which used to be covered by pristine rainforest and populated by orangutans. How-ever, the land had been cleared by an oil palm company leaving almost nothing behind. When found, the young orangutan was apparently motherless, screaming and shivering. The person who found the infant took her home. A special guest, former president of Indonesia, Megawati Soekarnoputri, was visiting Nyaru Menteng at the time and named the new baby Cinta. Cinta means love in Indonesian and we have a huge amount of love to give Cinta who was rescued on Valentines Day.
Due to massive deforestation for palm oil plantation and illegal logging in Borneo, more and more orangutans are being hunted for money as we speak. Sura and his other friends could use your help. At the moment, BOS Foundation is taking care of 700 orangutans with the help from 400 dedicated staffs. Apart from B.O.S, I am a supporter of Virunga National Park and Greenpeace.
