Following her pattern of showing long, flowing skirts and unprecedented hijabs, Anniesa Hasibuan stunned her audience again with an intense, regal runway show. The glittering silvers and sparkling golds made the models look royal and refined as they walked to the backdrop of fierce, energetic music. Knockout pieces include a ball gown composed of rose gold tulle made in the shape of roses paired with bronze and black, and the closing piece, an all black gown and cape stitched with Hasibuan’s signature “A” in gold.
The models’ makeup matched the color scheme — bronzed faces and golden eyelids flashed under the lights as they walked in a looped formation across the room. Sharp, black eyeliner and nude lips also enhanced the models’ looks. With this strong metallic pairing, the show was given an air of attitude and passion.
However, unlike Hasibuan’s previous seasons, her hijabs, mostly styled in satin grays, were not the center of the show. They blended into the background as the outfits took center stage— but perhaps this was the intention. Nonetheless, especially with the current political atmosphere, this may be a new direction for Hasibuan to consider.
