This season's Autumn/Winter 2018 collection, hit the NYFW stage at Industria Studios, NYC. The color palette was earthy, opening with a dress resembling terra cotta earthenware. Olive was a go-to fave, along with classic black and white, mixed with plenty of gold embellishments, and luminous white pearls.
Lace, Velvet, Ikat prints on dresses, mixed with Victorian collars and sporty sneakers, decorated models in fancy hijabis topped with dazzling, embroidered baseball caps. Zubedi managed to mix the traditional with the practical while paying homage. Sporty hats, tees, and dresses donned with the line “Banua Borneo”– In reference to the "homeland of Borneo", an island in Indonesia that Vivi Zubedi chose to make the focus of her collection.
Vivi Zubedi's Autumn/Winter 2018, "Urang Banua" collection was a hit! This says plenty since the majority of the audience was not of the modest fashion industry, or abaya-wearing crowd. Vivi came out and quietly accepted bouquets from the audience, as well as hugs from many well-wishers and celebrities ("Orange is the New Black" and "Love and Hip Hop" actresses to name a few), singing their praises to the modest fashion maker. (of course while wearing pieces from her collection and a stylish pair of blue suede heels! *swoon*).
Vivi Zubedi Collection was sponsored by HIJUP.com who will be selling both Vivi’s runway and "Zubedi by Vivi Zubedi" collections.

We can not wait to she what's next for this rising designer making waves, and bringing modesty to the main stream! Vivi Zubedi IG
