New York Fashion Week sees a lot of revolution on the runway, but one Muslim designer leads to bring something fully new to the catwalk current year.

A Muslim fashion designer has made history as the first ever designer to feature hijabs in each outfit on a New York Fashion Week catwalk on the runway.

She made her fashion debut in London in March 2015 and has travelled to the United States and Europe to showcase her unique designed work. In the middle of September 2016, she was the first being to feature the hijab in each look in her collection at New York Fashion Week.

Hasibuan was applauded crosswise over social media for helping bring Islamic fashion into the standard like others before her.

About Hijab—the head covering donned by lots of Muslim women in public, isn’t normally considered synonymous with high fashion, particularly in the western world. But times are changing.

Hijabs were spotted high and low at the New York Fashion Week, on the catwalk and in the street style of participants. The event highlighted its first appear of hijabs worn with every outfit. Muslim designer Anniesa Hasibuan from Indonesian showcased her collection, inspired by her hometown Jakarta, of beautiful/colorful silk and velvet tunics, gowns and kimonos.

Every model wore a hijab in gold, dove grey or pale pink silk. It is accepted to be the first time a New York Fashion Week catwalk show has highlighted hijabs on each model.

The show consisted of 48 unique looks, of which 10 were nightgowns and 38 were ready-to-wear pieces.

Following the show, Ms. Hasibuan took to the runway, where she got a huge standing ovation from the audience.

Online lifestyle magazine Muslim Girl respected and welcomed the collection, with reviewer Maha Syeda writing: “The Indonesian Muslim designer brought together the ideal factors of her cultural home nation and the metropolitan western fashion world to make a lovely harmony of modesty and fashion, because, yes, they do not have to clash.”

Fans of the Muslim designer Anniesa Hasibuan took to social media to praise for her collection, with one fan calling the show “completely stunning”. Another wrote, “this was everything!”

She says, in response to this, there has been a move towards the hijab or jilbab Shari'a - presented as more suitable modern Islamic dress, since it is long and loose and doesn't show a woman's curves.

For numerous young Muslim ladies, the hijab is not a statement or a symbol, but simply part of their identity, an identity they are asserting more confidently.

Ms. Hasibuan has beforehand held shows at major fashion capitals including Paris and London but this was her first catwalk in the United State.

New York Fashion Week ran from 8th to 15th September this year. Over the catwalk shows, around 125,000 people are evaluated to attend the shows while another 2 million watch online by means of live streams.


"I am so thankful to local and international media from Indonesia for exposing my show in US. I didn't realize the outcome can be this amazing, and I am humbled and thrilled by the welcome reaction given," Hasibuan told CNN.
