New York Fashion Week has officially commenced and FW19′ has come full force. On Thursday, February 7th designers Dian Pelangi, Zakaria Hamzah. Itang Yunasz and Maggie Hutauruk displayed their collections at Industria for Indonesian Diversity at NYFW.
Indonesian Diversity in cooperation with Indonesia Fashion Gallery presented four top designers straight from Indonesia. All four designers put stunning cultural twists on modern and on-trend fashions to NYFW.
Designer Dian Pelangi opened the show with the collection titled “Social Love,” a play on Instagram or social media fashion culture. “Women rocking a hijab should be still able to represent the modern, dynamic, and sporty street style typical of Manhattan.” shared Pelangi backstage.
As far as blending culture with today’s “social media fashion” Pelangi nailed it. I, alongside many in the audience, found myself in awe at the designs that came down the runway. Everything from the vibrant yet simple color scheme of pink, yellow, black and white boasted on-trend. Some looks are paired with small framed shades and an Adidas fanny pack which have become staples in NYC street style looks. The brilliant designs allow hijab-wearing women to maintain modesty in street style fashion at their will.
