Hijab fashion was present in NY Fashion Week for the first time thanks to Anniesa Hasibuan


The young Indonesian fashion designer, Anniesa Hasibuan was the first Hijab designer to showcase her  Spring/ Summer 2017 collection  in New York Fashion Week after exhibiting in London in 2015. Inspired by her culture’s style, Annisea wanted to bring forward a feminine and modern vision of woman.


Full of color and life, this collection targets every Hijabi who wants to be fashionable. The cuts are kept simple, but hand-embroidery would not disappoint you.The color palette captivated the sense of the fashion enthusiast guests; it was mostly about pastels. The designer used a wide range of fabrics such as velvet, silk and satin.


The shoes  and the scarves were mostly simple and in nude colours. Statement necklaces were the major accessory.The first event to ever be dedicated to Hijab fashion was the International Modest Fashion Week in Istanbul, in May 2016.


I think  such initiative would foster creativity in the industry of Modest Fasion and help emerging designer reach a wider audience. Bringing together different styles from different countries is just a great inspiration for every hijabi everywhere.

Yosra, Fashionably yours
