Anniesa Hasibuan SS17 - NYFW

West met Middle East Monday night at Indonesian Designer Anniesa Hasibuan became the first Indonesian designer to present a collection on-site at NYFW: The Shows in The Dock at Moynihan Station. As if that wasn't groundbreaking enough, she also became the first designer to present her entire collection with hijabs, the traditional head-covering dawned by many Muslim women. The collection was a true representation how how the west can merge with the east featuring many wearable pieces that would be swoonworthy for the Western market, including gorgeous metallic and printed pants as well as blazers and accessories like glasses and belts that are waitlist worthy! 

The show was so groundbreaking and the fashion so spectacular that the designer entered the runway for her finale walk to a standing ovation and cheers from the crowd, which was a beautiful rainbow of color. In a world where there is so much talk about division, for one night, fashion brought us all together and it was magical.
