New York Fashion Week rookie Raf Simons cheers on other designers

New York Fashion Week rookie Raf Simons cheers on other designers

Hasibuan's February 2017 collection featured a number of floor-length, neutral-colored dresses, while each of the models walking down the runway donned a light-gray hijab.

Hasibuan's collection features shimmering, on-trend pleats, silver and golden ruffles, and long trains adorned with pearls, glitter or embroidery.

"There is beauty in diversity and differences, something we should not be afraid of", she added. The decree ignited mass protests and global condemnation.

India-born US-based designer Premal Badiani showcased her latest collection titled "Root Cause" at the New York Fashion Week and her inspiration was to "bring awareness of the human impact on the environment".

Hasibuan, however, claims that her work is first and foremost geared toward Muslim women and not a reaction to politics.

"I want to bring the Indonesian name to the fashion world, and use my clothes to introduce people to the different and diverse parts of Indonesia", Hasibuan told her hometown newspaper, The Jakarta Post, last year.

Since then she has opened new shops in her home country Indonesia as well as in Malaysia, Turkey and Abu Dhabi - proffering modern Islamic clothing dripping in glamour. (And, no, we're actually not talking about Ivanka, who's been frequenting the biannual event for decades.) Tiffany Trump has sat in the front row of two shows so far this season, at Taoray Wang and Philipp Plein; with two days of NYFW left, she could very well attend a few more.

For Sari, Hasibuan's growing fame is a gift.
