Anniesa Hasibuan got a standing ovation after presenting a collection complete with hijab at the recently concluded NYFW 2016
The Indonesian womenswear brand showed all the piece from the collection complete with hijab- a first at NYFW- to style every single piece/look presenting a collection she revealed was inspired by her native Jakarta Indonesia where she hails from.
Hasibuan revealed in Jakarta hijabs are paired with chic pieces like trousers, tops and more where modest dressing is in place and widely encouraged. She told 'The Jakarta Post' her brand is out to promote decent and minimalist dressing.
The collection presented include embellished kimonos, dresses, tunics in silk and colourful designs showing minimalist timeless pieces that got rave reviews afterwards.
"I want to bring the Indonesian name to the fashion world, and use my clothes to introduce people to the different and diverse parts of Indonesia" the eponymous brand's creative director Hasibuan told 'The Jakarta Post' after presenting a collection that earned her a standing ovation.
Not bad for a one year old old womenswear brand from Indonesia. Take a look at some of the designs from the collection.
