Layers of Fidelity Runaway

Indonesian designer Nur Zahra showed for the first time in Tokyo as part of the Indonesia Fashion Forward show at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Tokyo. Her modern take on "modest" or Hijabi clothing won fans with the crowd, especially for her fabulous prints. Created with organic dyes using the batik technique on Japanese shibori fabric, the browns, blues and beige patterns are based on Islamic decoration. The amazing hats were inspired by an image of artist Jean Seberg but recreated using traditional Indonesia methods. All in all, the work was a fabulous mix of tradition and modernity.
