Having a business with your good friend is always challenging, yet also interesting in many ways. Meiliana is one the girls behind the clothing line Aria, together with Gege Elisa. Being a co-owner of the clothing line, Meiliana is taking part as the production manager of the brand. Dividing the works, she handles the fabrics and materials selection, as well as colors scheme – while the design is much more on Gege’s part.
Ever since Aria was established last year, Meiliana consistently focuses on how the brand would fit the comfort of an active woman. For their first season, the two opted the pastel nuance. She also confessed that bold color and pattern will be on its way for the collection. “We do prefer pastel and warm colors, but it doesn’t rule out the possibility for us to choose bold colors for our next collection.”
Not only the changes regarding the color collection, Meiliana told Letter F that Aria also aimed to start producing dress, outerwear, even jumpsuit.
Simple and elegant shirt is suitable for Aria girls, but Meiliana wants to push forward the brand by designing new things. “Other than that, we would also love to have our premium collection.”
