I never thought I would see the day where a whole collection is filled with looks where women are completely covered up. Anniesa Hasibuan bought hijabs to the runway in a chic way and made everyone want to wear hijabs.

She effortlessly infused metallics into the looks and utilized lots of pinks as well as lace without disrespecting the culture and single handedly showed that one can be chic from head to toe while adhering to cultural values.
