About Fahrani Empel :

Fahrani Empel has been working for many prestigious international fashion shows and famous designers in the world such as New York, Milan, Paris, Hong Kong, Tokyo, Barcelona, and Singapore, for 5 different international agencies based in Italy, Japan, Thailand, and Indonesia. Fahrani was raised to be an independent girl and was taught not to trouble anyone by solving her own problems herself. She looks up to her mother, Vonny Rahayu Pawaka, the Indonesian top model in the late 70’s. Fahrani began her career when she was just 5 years old by starring several TV commercials and soap operas. At 13 years old, the cheerful girl entered John Casablanca’s school of modelling and graduated as the best student. Under the John Casablanca’s Agency, Fa –as friends address her- often appeared in fashion shows and TV soap operas. When she was 15 years old, Fa joined a prestigious competition Elite Model Look 1999 and came out as the runner up. She was sent to Elite Model Look International Paris in 2000 and became the finalist that afterward opened the door for her international career. In the following year Fa played another film “Kala” (Dead Time) which internationally gained big success including as Best Film in Berlin Film Festival 2008. Her love towards home country and parents makes Fahrani choose to settle in Indonesia, yet it doesn’t burry her passion towards modeling because she feels the leisure for this profession. Up until now Fa still receives jobs from Singapore, Milan, Paris and New York. After 10 years of modeling career, Fa began to think of her future and built her own shoes business with label ‘Partner in Crime’ based in Bali. She designs the shoes herself, and these handmade shoes are exported to Barcelona, Ibiza, and Italy. Every year Fahrani’s shoes company produces more than a thousand pair of shoes, and she’s planning to open the branch in Australia soon. Apparently the magnificence of Bali has made a top model who has traveled around the world rest for a moment. For Fa, Bali is the answer for the freedom spirit she posses. Yet still after all these great accomplishments, the independent Fa has some plans ahead. The New York Fashion Weeks for autumn and winter are her next target.
