Amy Atmanto, an Indonesian designer of Acehese origin, plans to make Aceh songket (a glittering, golden woven fabric) go international.

She has been planning to hold a fashion show using Aceh songket as the basic material for her fashion designs, which she intends to present in two world fashion capitals; Milan, Italy and Paris, France, by the end of this year.

Amy, who has many celebrity clients, had also designed clothing using songket material for the 2007 Miss Universe Riyo Mori during her visit to Indonesia in 2007.
