In 1980s, hijab is increasing in popularity though it wasn’t allowed to wear in public facilities as the underestimated view on the hijabers. The style at the time still slightly expose their neck, though some of them had already covered all. Burqa and Niqab were very rare. Hijab was generally still looked at down view during 1980s.
After 1990s, hijab styles changed a lot especially in the end part of 1990s. Hijab was getting more fashionable and favoured by Muslimats and some even trimmed their hijabs.
In 2000s-now, hijab has already been part of Indonesian’s fashion. Besides of covering body, it can also be fashionable, though many of them then become unruly as it still show body silhouettes and in many cases, just covering, not protecting. But at least, people should haven’t underestimated hijabistas’ existences.
Well, the timeline still continues then…
As we know, Indonesians are Muslim majority nation and Islam has been integral part of Indonesian society, including the dress codes. Muslims, particularly women are required to cover most of their body parts. Most Islamic scholars refer to only face and hands that can be seen, while some minorities say that all parts of women’s body are aurat and must be totally covered. From merely sheer veil until burqa can be seen. But time goes by, and Islamic dresses can be fancier and more fashionable than before, and even Indonesia is one of hijabi fashion centres in the world.
Well, as a fake master of fashion, I just share about Islamic dresses from time to time, started from 1910s. Until 1980s, there were few women who wore full hijab and most of them are female Islamic scholars or students in Islamic schools and at the time, hijab was still considered as fundamentalists and underestimated.
Here are some drawings about Islamic dress in Indonesia from 1910s to 1970s, the rest will continue inshaallah tomorrow.
After the first illustration, I continue to the second part. From 1970s to 2010s or present. In 2010s, I think it’s anything goes era where you can dress up whatever you wish as far as you’re comfortable and high esteem.
Well, this is the second part of my illustration.
I am inspired by a youtube‘s channel who broadcasted timeline fashion for 100 years and I still haven’t found Indonesian style after searching for a long time (or maybe I am not patient enough), I decided to draw the styles from 1910s to recent. But for the first is from 1910s to 1960s as far as I ever see from some photos and publications.
The first part remained popular even until 1950s among youngsters, and kebaya was also still trendy for the girls at least until 1950s.
But I think Indonesian ladies started to wear western dress in 1930s or combined the modern hairdos with kebaya and kain. But in 1960s, more westernized style developed including the minis.
*I am not fashion lover, but love to know its history* Enjoy my drawing. Hehehehee.
