Leave something to the imagination with Amalina Aman’s bohemian-inspired collection
‘MODEST fashion’, as Muslim design has become known, is fast coinciding with fashion in general. It can be worn with or without the hijab. It perfect for those who want to leave something to the imagination when they dress, the office, a garden party and yes, even festival wear.
The work of Amalina Mardiyah Aman is also decadent in the way you could wear pieces to a high end cocktail bar, lounging in your European villa or swap out the tops with jeans or a
T-shirt with the long skirts. It is modest wear and it is perfect for all ages and there is a myriad of ways to wear it.
Amalina is of Cocos Island descendancy. Aged 31, she was born and raised in Port Hedland, Western Australia and eventually moved to Sydney. Her mother and grandmother inspired her to pursue her dreams in becoming a fashion designer and stylist.
Amalina started to pursue her career in 2004 after finishing at the Whitehouse Institute and the FBI fashion school. She went on to be the first Australian Muslim designer to be invited to showcase her designs internationally. In 2011 where she was invited to showcased at the Islamic fashion festival Kuala Lumpur Malaysia, then to New York City, where she showed as part of New York fashion week, continuing onto London and Jakarta - to name just a few. Amalina has also achieved success nationally in and around Australia.
“I gather my influences from bohemian and gypsy styles of the 1960s to 1970s era which I consider a way to connect oneself to culture, nature and the feminine side. I want every individual that wears my creations to feel the exclusivity of the design,” said Amalina.
Amalina only uses the finest quality material like chiffon, lace, jersey and lycra depending on the seasons and all her designs are proudly made in Australia.
She transforms the latest trends into modest creations which the modern women can identify with.
With her niche in the market established, the demand to design menswear and childrens wear has begun.
Amalina, who has been dubbed ‘the bohemian gypsy hippie girl’ by her proud international clientele will showcase exclusively in Queensland at the Sunshine Coast International Fashion Festival in October.
