She was inspired to create a Spring/Summer 2017 collection that would break boundaries and crossover to mainstream fashion with mix and match separates in an earthy color palette of neutrals, peaches and greens that can be worn with our without a hijab.
Mix and match creativity birthed the collection of layered coats, joggers, tunics and beaded kimonos. For the motifs, Anniesa uses tied and batik printing techniques giving the collection a distinctive flair. Exquisite embellishments elevate the apparel pieces into beyond-belief spectacular ensembles complete with a little added edge. Heavy beading and logo-adorned hijabs complimented each tailored jacquard suit or flowing kimono and tunic combination seamlessly.
The theme for this collection, ‘Jakarta’, drew inspiration from the people in the designer’s hometown. According to Anniesa Hasibuan, Jakarta occupants have unique style because they originate from many different indigenous tribes and foreign backgrounds. Each piece in the collection features exquisite fabrics including metallic, intense beadwork and embroidery details.
Anniesa Hasibuan is thrilled to present her Spring/Summer 2017 collection to the Doha audience. After receiving international praise from a phenomenal New York Fashion Week debut, the young designer will expand to countless untapped markets this season.
