A Tool of Empowerment

It's been a while since we received the package from SixteenR. We finally got a chance to properly get to know the products in our last trip. Our first impression, well these scarves are interesting; a soft silk purple scarves with some printing on it. It looks fun. The other one is a bright yellow scarf with a square pattern made out of fairly stiff material. Well normally, this is not a material that we use for headscarves. We got challenge.

Surprisingly the scarves texture very nice and warm, perfect for the beach when it's quite windy. We almost always took that scarves every time we went to the beach; simply by rolling it around the body or wrapping over the head or even just to warm your neck. We have to admit we started to get addicted with the scarves.

By the time we got home, we tried to know a bit more about the brand. When we browsed to their website www.sixteenr.com we immediately fell in love with the philosophy :
- A scarf can be a tool of empowerment.
- A scarf can define a womans presence with power and style.
- A scarf has the ability to transform a woman's appearance, whether you worn it as a neck scarf or as a head scarf.

With those strong personality, you would feel like you want to continue the spirit and the energy through the scarves their produce. You will crave for trying each of their products.

Nancy Hoque designs the products to make everyone who wear it feel confident and beautiful. Each design is innovative in color, look and feel. Furthermore each design has their meaning behind it. We think owning one scarf wont be enough, no? You have to have more than just one scarves to live by their ethos. So, what say you?

Almost A Year

Our old website design (April 2010 - April 2011)

Mrs. Fifi Alvianto
Its been a wonderful journey for both of us, we started to have this blog last year, it was on April 2010 when we decided to make something that others might find useful especially for those who wear hijab. Blogging is something that I really like since 2007, I found my passion there, including photography, and this blog has helped me a lot in finding what I really like to do in life. After 1 month progress, Hijab Scarf was published in May, 10th - 2010, so around that April we did a loooottt of brainstorming. Somehow I can't believe it that we made it this far, having readers who support us and being interviewed by media, really made me cry. Hugs and kisses from me to all the readers out there, without you we are nothing.

Mrs. Hanna Faridl
I never thought I would sacrifice my dream job for blogging. I went to school in order to pursue my job working in tv station for tv programming. After a year working in tv programming I decided to quit and pursue my passion in Hijab Scarf.
I wasn't familiar with blogging until Fifi introduce me with this concept. From Hijab Scarf, I realize how small the world is. We can have the same feelings, difficulties and enthusiasm with our friend from another part of the world without even knowing them in person. The same feeling of starting the new life with the hijab, the difficulties of adjusting the new look and the enthusiasm of knowing forward about hijab.
On the contrary, Hijab Scarf also showed me that I know little about hijab. There are so many different perspectives and styles regarding hijab. This diversity makes me want to know more about hijab and the muslimah who wear hijab.
I learn so many things from this website that i wouldn't get from school. It's been a wonderful year and I am looking forward to know more and more about hijab and the way everyone express their hijab.


Today, we published a new look and layout for Hijab Scarf, hopefully you'll like it. Be prepared for our anniversary and quiz on May. Stay tune here and in the meantime please fill in our form [HERE].

Thank you

Fashion Festival Centro

With Mrs. Anti - Sr. Manager, Merchandising Centro

With friends from media, Fimela.com, Femina, etc.


We feel delighted that we got the opportunity to attend Fashion Festival from Centro. Centro is a department store that is famous here in Indonesia specifically in Jakarta. On that night we got a chance not only meeting some friends from the media but also meeting the most influential people from Centro.

Centro Fashion Festival & Dinner, 'Get The Movie Star Look' was held last March in the Ballroom of Djakarta Theatre. Centro would like to inspire everyone that each one of us is having their own star look that are ready to be explore. And we couldn't agree more of this idea.

Having a heavy influence from movies is something interesting and the upcoming collection from Centro is no exception. Centro brought some influential movies from past decades like The Tourist, The Devil Wears Prada, Confession of a Shopaholic, etc.

From their playful colored dress to a simple smart jacket like Anne Hathaway wore from The Devil Wears Prada, Centro is one of the places that is worth a visit. So let us bring out the star in us and take a look of their collection.

Media Exposure : Casa Elana (Republika)

The universe has been so kind. One thing that make our life even better than before is having our own clothing line, Casa Elana. The making of Casa Elana contains a bowl of laugh, a touch of luck and a simple chemistry among the three of us.

Casa Elana is an extension of something that we like to do. We like to have a tailor made dresses ever since we’re in school. We enjoy wearing our own design even though none of us actually know how to make a dress pattern. Nothing could be happier than working on something that you really enjoy, right?

We started using the name Casa Elana last March and this April we got a huge opportunity. We got a chance to show our collections to Republika, a National daily newspaper in Indonesia. It is such a great and honored opportunity for us, Alhamdulillah.

The photosession went well. I guess.. except for the silly poses we made. Hahaha.. Trust us, we tried to find someone more appropriate, more like a model, to get this photosession. Unfortunately we finally got to be the model for our own clothing line. Quite an experience.

To our friends in Indonesia. Try to get today’s Republika or read from the image (click it for larger view), April 3rd 2011. Well hope that you like our collections as well as our poses *wink.
