September 29, 2014 – Featuring over twenty designs from her latest collection, famed and internationally renowned Indonesian designer, Dian Pelgani, put on spectacular show of Islamic fashion at Nustanara’s headquarters in New York City. Having held prior shows in London, Paris, Germany, Holland, Melbourne, Dubai, Cairo, Kuwait and Jordan, among other places, this is her first show in New York.
The audience, who filled Nusantara’s event space to the brim, were mesmerized by the models strutting down the runway wearing exotic dresses, gowns and outfits featuring luxurious fabrics, shimmering and bejeweled details, and flattering cuts — all the while staying true to Islamic modesty standards.
Ms. Pelangi, who is in her early 20’s, has already made her mark as a creative and bold designer of Islamic fashions, and has achieved international recognition for her work. In creating her colorful pieces, her mission is to “change people’s perceptions of Islam and Islamic fashions,” helping make modesty both beautiful and pleasant.
Following her show, Ms. Pelangi treated the audience with a quick presentation on how to tie a headscarf, or hijab, by providing two day-time styles, and two evening looks.
Nusantara was thrilled to host Dian for her first event in New York, and we look forward to hosting her show again in the future.
