Islamic Fashion Festival at Malaysia International Fashion Week 2009

Its Malaysian International Fashion Week 7th November 2009

“She’s Hasna’”
Al- Hasna it’s described as Beauty/ Beautiful. Truly inspired by the women in the Eastern Mediterranean countries, this is a collection of 5 elegant caftans that is imaginative of the beauty of the Eastern Mediterranean women. Described as the personal style of Rico Rinaldi, this collection was overall made using  draping technique as it should define the loose silhouette of Islamic wear. Detailed with stones and crystals, this collection personified the handmade embellishments that are so representative of Rico Rinaldi style. Using the luxurious chiffon silk and satin silk added to the sheer, feminine and sophisticated look of the Hasna’.

This modest line for a change, was in itself a sort of diversion from his otherwise regular urban, modern and outlandishly detailed collection that so defines Rico Rinaldi.
Here are some of the pictures from the collection:
