To the delight of shopaholics everywhere, Bandung’s shopping and fashion scene is large and ever expanding.  From factory outlets to mega malls, the city is filled to the brim with a multitude of them! Tourists flock here to find the best choices and amazing deals!! This is the reason why it’s considered to be the shopping mecca of Indonesia.  


With E! All Access Indonesia, Maria and I take you to some of the must-visit shopping spots in the West Java capital! Paris Van Java shopping mall and Heritage factory outlet are among those not to be missed. But the highlight of this episode? We visited the atelier of one of Indonesia’s talented designers, Deden Siswanto. Born and bred in Bandung, Deden opened up to us about his design process, how he acquires his inspirations, and kindly gave us a tour of his impressive studio.
