The collection was truly worthy of the crowds extended cheering. Making the headscarf an accessible and wearable feature in this collection brought together what were once perceived as two different worlds. Western glamour blended with Muslim tradition and Indonesian ethnic flair truly made the worlds come together, complete with pearls, silk and gold.
