Kleting Titis Wigati
Indonesian fashion designer Kleting Titis Wigati is CEO & Creative director at KLÉ, ready-to-wear fashion label she started in Jakarta, Indonesia, in 2009. Her designs are brave and sharp, intended for non-conformist individuals who crave self-expression through their personal style.
Kleting graduated in Fashion Design from Istituto Marangoni Milano School of Fashion in 2005. The years spent in Italy’s fashion capital have allowed her to acknowledge and appreciate European sartorial tastes and fashion flair, without neglecting the Asian eccentric sense we always find in her creations.

As a fashion designer, she has been showcasing her collections in Indonesia since 2009, also taking part in several Fashion Weeks.
Her talent is repeatedly recognized and rewarded with numerous achievements and awards, including Cleo “Young and Talented Designer” Fashion Award in 2008 and ESMOD’s 2001 award for pattern making and design interpretation. In 2008, she was chosen as one of 30 most inspiring people under 30 years old by Hard Rock FM radio Jakarta.
