One thought on “Indonesian fashion in Contemporary Muslim Fashions

Richly colored and textured and elegant. It also expresses the tension between the individuality of persons, the need to recognize the rights of women, and rules which constrain how women dress. Although the constraints are beautifully realized, the very varied beauty that pushes the boundaries of the constraints expresses the need for greater freedom for women. An exquisite aesthetic experience.
