Ten young fashion designers graduated from the Bandung Islamic Fashion Institute after showing off their collections during the Takhorruj Fashion Show in the West Java provincial capital on Dec. 19.
The annual fashion show, known as Haflatu at Takhorruj, is a thesis defense of sorts for students at the institution. The main theme of "Notre Voyage" ("Our Journey") was chosen to signify the end of their journey as students.
The entire collection was prepared over nine months, with each designer tasked with creating clothing that adhered to the tenets of shariah while still convenient to wear. The students took their inspiration from the Industrial Revolution, video games and nature.
The graduates who took part in the show were Rifdatul Khoiro, Haliza Apriana, Dwi Mustika Dantika, Minatilah Maupurah, Siti Salma Nursabila, Putri Nur Kharisma, Felicia Joufrinne, Shafiradita Farhani, Mashita Andhani Prieska and Firman Nurimansyah.
Senior designers Irna Mutiara, Nuniek Mawardi and Deden Siswanto initiated the Bandung Islamic Fashion Institute, which was established in 2015. As the country's first Islamic fashion school, it strives to hone the skills of talented designers to meet the challenges and needs of a dynamic Muslim fashion world.
