ISLAMIC FASHION [part 1]- Hijab Trend in Indonesia.

via sitisstreet.blogspot

Hello visitor. We are in April already, how time flies!

Its been a long time I did not update my fashion feed. and yep, as you read in the title, Hijab has catched my attention. Today I want to share about Hijab Trend in Indonesian [ part 1] and also How To Wear Hijab Indonesian Style Tutorial [Part 2].

Many muslim woman in Indonesia choose to wear hijab or jilbab in local term and so with some of my friends and family.

I myself don't wear hijab but I amazed with how hijabbers- common local term for hijabi, make the symbolic headpiece become a way to express not only their beliefs but also their styling ability. The creativity of hijabbers in Indonesia has also inspired and influence the way other muslim woman in other countries wear their hijab and the world of Islamic fashion in general.

The limited option in term of wardrobe when wearing hijab seemed could not stop many young woman in Indonesia experimenting with fashion option and ways of wearing their hijab with attitude.

Combining various colors, pattern and texture into the typical hijab attire is how to wear a hijab Indonesian style makes the hijab colorful, form- fitting and incorporates different fabrics simultaneously.

Natural fiber is more preferable. Breathable, soft and cool materials as you see in these pictures above and below, are definitely intended to suit Indonesian climate.

Some list of materials often used for these hijabs in the market I often found are Cotton, Paris Cotton, Rayon Cotton- I like it myself very comfortable to wear and I like its hand's feel, Cotton Jeans, Denim, Combed cotton, All type of Spandex; spandex rayon, spandex cotton also lycra, Chiffon, Sateen, Jersey, Slumb Jersey, etc etc

kaftans, for wedding party or other formal occasions.

There's many other models and designs but these are that seems to be trend now and you'll find them easily, especially in big cities in Indonesia.

Coco Chanel said that fashion fade.
Question: is this hijab trend among hijabi fashionistas reflects religious values or simply style?

Obviously wearing hijab is an obligatory for a muslim. The fact that many people-even women, still have wrong perception about hijabs has encourage some young muslim woman in Jakarta to establish a community called HC stands for Hijabbers Community in November.

Supported by Moshaicte Boutique, to these young hijjabers in HC, dedicating live to Islam doesn't means escaping from the normal life at all.

Among other challenges they have to deal, HC  aim is to provide a place for Muslim woman to share and learn about Islamic way. They can be fashionable while retaining their religious value.

"The HC’s primary goal is to create a place where Muslim women can gather and learn from one another about Islam. They help women find inner religious consciousness and resist the idea that a hijab is just for style." -The Jakarta post

The Hijabbers community are very active in social media so if you want to find them simply google it. :)
