Dian Pelangi

Born on January 14, 1991 in Palembang, Dian Pelangi graduated from Ecole Superieur des Arts et Techniques de la Mode (ESMOD) with a very satisfying grade in 2008. Known as a multitalented designer, Dian Pelangi brings colour and excitement to the local and international moslem fashion scene. Dian draws inspiration from the colours of the rainbow and she passionately mines Indonesia’s heritage for her inspiration, from vivid tie-dye and exquisite songket to lavish batik. Dian Pelangi is the main designer of Dian Pelangi company, one of the nation’s leading moslem fashion house.

Realizing her broad influence, the youngest member of Asosiasi Perancang Pengusaha Muda Indonesia (APPMI) published her own book in 2012 containing street-styles from moslem women in countries she had travelled to, artistically handpicked by herself.

Hijab Street Style is Dian Pelangi's first book, which presents over 700 styles of Muslimah/Muslim from various cities in Indonesia and even from other countries in Southeast Asia. Matched to the title, all of the women that are featured in this book are not models that are set for a photoshoot but impromptu models from various backgrounds whom Dian met when she attended talkshows and fashion show events.
