In Jakarta, they call them "Hijabistas" - a mix of hijab and fashionistas. They love glamourous clothes and colors. They are very feminine yet they still wear their muslim outfits and respect the Quran's values.

Indonesian fashion designers are hoping to turn Indonesia into the world’s Muslim fashion Mecca within the next decade. The country, which has the largest Muslim population, is already on the right path. Many designers have already established flourishing businesses in their local communities. Some of them even made it to the international market. Distancing themselves from the traditional black burqa, those Islamic fashion designers are now proposing new and unique clothing and hijab styles for muslim women from all around the globe.

The clothes, which are sold throughout the whole muslim world, are made in the outskirts of Jakarta. The capital even have its own fashion week, dedicated to this type of clothing. Dian Pelangi, a well known Indonesian fashion designer, even created a special collection for the Eid celebration this year, which she presented at the fashion week a couple of weeks ago. She even created an innovative jilbab (long and loose-fit coat or garment worn by some Muslim women) series called Circle Shawl to encourage more young women to wear the jilbab.

En Indonésie on les appelle les hijabistas : contraction d'hijab et fashionista : elles aiment le glamour et les couleurs. Elles portent leurs tenues musulmanes dans le plus grand respect des préceptes du Coran, mais elles sont très féminines. Loin de la burqa, la mode musulmane connait désormais sa capitale : Jakarta. Les designers rivalisent d'idées pour sortir du triste voile foncé et des robes sombres.
