Up2date Designs

I love this designer, Lia Triana, with the design label Up2date from Indonesia. I can see why Indonesia is headed towards being a major hub in the Islamic fashion world! In fact, they are apparently making plans for an annual Indonesian Islamic Fashion Fair in an attempt to make Indonesia the center of the world’s Muslim fashion scene by 2020. Indonesian designs are extremely colorful, light, layered, and modest!

Did Ya Know? More Indonesian women began to wear Islamic clothing after the mid 1990s when the New Order regime eased religious repression. Previously, civil servants, office workers and students were banned from wearing the jilbab!
