"The strength of Dian Pelangi, Nur Zahra, and Jenahara are their designs' character is not only favored by women who wear hijab, but also by fashionistas who do not wear hijab daily. With this strategy, their works could be absorbed by the consumers of western countries and compete with other clothing categories," says Diaz Parzada, Creative Director of Jakarta Fashion Week.
