Spearheading the innovative Muslimah fashion industry is the Islamic Fashion Institute Indonesia, with their harmonious synergy of modesty and fashion trends

Founded in 2013 by three of Indonesia's renowned designers, Irna Mutiara, Nuniek Mawardi, and Deden Siswanto, Islamic Fashion Institute has been producing innovative Muslimah fashionwear, all of them designed by their very own talented students.

From creating designs based on historical buildings to environmental events in Indonesia, there's certainly no shortage of creativity in their breathtaking lines of modestwear.

On that note, let's take a look at 10 beautiful modestwear designs created by their students that caught our eyes:
