Cresentia Judith Tedjamulia, otherwise known as Judith, discovered her passion in fashion when she started designing her own wardrobe. Her friends and colleagues were quickly attracted to her unique personal style, and asked her to design clothes for them.
What started out as a personal hobby soon flourished into a line of accessories and clothing known as De Dittie. The name itself was taken from the designer's nickname, given to her by some close friends.
After graduating from Universitas Pelita Harapan with a degree in graphic design, she set off to work in various publications, first as a graphic designer and then as a stylist. She also freelanced as stylist for commercials, catalogs, and band photo shoots, while still maintaining her clothing line business and taking custom made orders at home.
Judith finally decided to focus on her passion to be a fashion designer and entrepreneur, and started her own Ready-To-Wear line, aptly named Judittie. She quit her job in publications and took a pattern making course to sharpen her skills.
Judittie is a line focused on comfortable daily wear, infused a touch of ethnicity with the use of lace, tulle, and embroidery. These rather classic or traditional materials are paired with eccentric cuts and design to create an eclectic look which is suitable for modern women.
Both De Dittie and Judittie share the same design philosophy: Ethnic, Eclectic, adn Eccentric. Her visions in design are mostly influenced by her family and childhood environment, which revolved strongly around Javanese culture.
