Even though JFW was held four months faster than the initial plan, she successfully presented her masterpiece entitled Paper Garden. Her Japanese-inspired origami is applied in kebaya paired with Makassar saroong and batik.

Since she first appeared in 2008, she is identical with playful. Bright colours are always seen in her design. Agustin admitted that she was more expressive when playing with colours.

She said that her works are reflected from her character. "It is fun, playful, and expressive," she said.
