Hijabs take over NYFW

Nov 14, 2016

*This post might be late for New York Fashion Week, but it's awfully timely considering the cultural climate of our country don't you think?

Earlier this fall, Muslim fashion designer Anniesa Hasibuan took fashion to a whole new level by putting headscarves on each of her models. 

Hasibaun is only 30, but she's already breaking records at Fashion Week. Last year, Hasibaun was the first Indonesian woman to show a collection. This year, her collection was the first ever where all models were wearing hijabs.

Her show was so successful she took it to Jakarta Fashion Week as well:

The shows earned a standing ovation from audience members. Hasibaun told CNN "I did not realize the result can be this amazing, and I am thrilled and humbled by the welcome reaction given."
