Hijabi Fashion Show in NY

Living up to the tradition and culture, first Hijab runaway show was presented at New York Fashion Week. Hijab, which is the traditional veil worn by Muslim women that covers their head and chest was worn by the models, which walked the New York Fashion Week runaway for the first time in shows of luxurious Muslim clothes, designed by the Indonesian designer Anniesa Hasibuan and Indian-American designed Naeem Khan.

Hasibuan’s show took place at one of NYFW venues, the Moynihan Station in downtown Manhattan. She is not the first Indonesian designer to present her collection in the Big Apple. But she is the first one to showcase a collection that has every look worn in Hijabs. Her collection displayed hijab worn with trousers, tunics, trousers and colorful silk gowns. It is one of the biggest achievements for Hasibuan as Naeem started her career just a year ago. Her brand became successful in several fashion events that took place in London Istanbul.

Michelle Obama has also worn Naeem Khan’s gowns without Hijab, which proves the talent of the designer. There have been various Asian designers, which have displayed their beautiful apparel collection in New York shows. However, Naeem Khan’s case is different because of the unique “Hijab” factor.

Hijab is like an apparel identity for all the Muslim women. Showcasing this unique part of Muslim modesty in a fashion show actually encourage all the Muslim women on how they can be classy wearing Hijab. It also enhances the beauty of Hijab.
