On October the 3rd, 2015 RBI participated in the Annual International Festival in Killeen. We participated last year as well and was very nice experience thus we for sure participated again this year.
It was different than last year, this year the event was held inside the Killeen Community Event Center, last year it was outdoor and very very cold so maybe they thought we were better off inside.
RBI team came with some different kind of Indonesian Traditional Attire,
It was surely very colorful and people were drawn to our booth.
The attire that we wore for Fashion Show were:
Balinese (Kristin, Ika and Agung Phinney), East Nusa Tenggara (Anne Downs), North Sumatra (Rosie Baptiste, Katrin Sheehan and Caleb Baptiste), Dayak (Febby Sheehan), Banjarmasin (Rudi), Sundanese (Yuni and Butet Amick), South Sulawesi (Dian and Audrey Lacey), Javanese (Ambar and Shaun Paul Sheehan).
Our perforrmance began with a solo dance (Balinese Dance) by Agung Phinney, then followed by Traditional Costumes Fashion Show. Dian Smith explained and introduced us and our costumes with the song from each particular ethnicity/area,
The audience seemed very interested. The performance was ended by Jaipong Dance by Yuni and Butet Amick. The dynamic dance surely got a great response from those who watched it.
We also had a Sale Booth with great decor (Thank you to Mbak Tami DeVries and her team that had already decorated a night before). Very Festive.
