New York fashion week came in a rush, like the unpredictable snow in Paris of the latest week.
Reading the newspapers in the past few days , we spotted a few remarkable things to get highlighted on our Modest Fashion booklet. Let’s start from the very beginning.
Last year it was Anniesa Hasibuan , the first Indonesian designer showcasing during NY fashion week on NYFW February 2017. This year is time for another amazing Indonesian talent , named Vivi Zubedi.
Among sounding labels- such as Marc Jacobs and Alex Wang – Vivi was the only one representing an hijabi women on stage, introducing her collection “Urang Banua” a homage, a grateful tribute to people of Banjarbaru and Tanah Bumbu in South Kalimantan, Indonesia.
But in the US , not only the catwalk have recently turned the eyes on Modesty. Started from February 15th , Macy’s-one of the US premier retailers- will include on their e-commerce space a Modest choice, signed by Verona Collection. This marvellous partnership has a story behind . Verona was 2017 graduate of The Workshop at Macy’s, the retailer’s minority- and women-owned business development program founded in 2011. From a project in class, this has become a reality.
“Through The Workshop at Macy’s, we want to nurture and support minority- and women-owned businesses to build their capabilities and become the next generation of retail partners,” as reported by Shawn Outler, Macy’s executive vice president – Licensed Businesses, Food Services and Multicultural Initiatives, on Macy’s press release .
From Feb.15th you can find online at macys.com Verona’s choice, made up by a wide range of modern dresses, pants, cardigans, tops and hijab . A fresh breeze which embraces the need of a rising fashionable cluster of amazing women.
These fabulous occasions are creating a whirl of interest and NY may be the next destination to host a unique Modest Fashion show on itself. After London, Paris, Dubai … maybe it’s time for its turn. The big apple with its multiculturalism can be ready to embrace this new emerging lifestyle.
