Wednesday 14 September was a big day in the history of New York Fashion Week. Not only was it the first time an Indonesian designer had been included in the line-up, it was also the first time the hijab appeared on the catwalk.

At just 28-years-old, it’s an impressive feat from designer Anniesa Hasibuan – whose SS17 collection featured a dreamy pastel palette, delicate lace and detailed beadwork teamed with silk hijabs.

Hasibuan follows in the footsteps of designers Mimpikita, who brought the hijab to London Fashion Week for the first time in February 2016.
