Floor-length skirts and sleeves that graze your wrists are often reminiscent of times past. But instead of harking back to bygone eras, IRA by Twenty3 uses modest garments to hark forward to an age of women harnessing their own strength.
To inform their creations, our designers have taken subtle and deceptively simple cues from the modern world they inhabit. The glorious tilt of a woman's chin when she walks tall, the supple arch of a woman's back, the quiet dignity of women of faith, have all played into their vision for structure mixed with softness. The IRA by Twenty3 collection is as much social commentary as it is fast fashion. Whether in the form of a precise hand-drawn print or a luxuriant swish of green in an A-line skirt, there's something riveting about elevating modest fashion to its rightful place as part homage to the goddess in every woman. Here, tradition, grace, and strength collide, coalesce, and blossom on modern women making their way through the world --- a world awakening to a new kind of heritage.Explore our new line of scarves, hijabs, shawls, maxi dresses, jubahs and baju kurung.
We were asked by some customers if we offered modest wear in our store. While we don't at present - at least, not in the strict definition of modest wear - we challenged ourselves to put together some outfits from our current collections for the modern ladies who embrace modest fashion.
And we are pretty excited with the results! We carefully curated these outfits with an emphasis on comfort and chic. Each individual piece creates endless possibilities for effortless mixing, matching and layering for the modern woman to express her own individuality, regardless of whether she's more comfortable covered or more confident exposed.
Our friend Alyssa (ig: @alyssaaishahshahrir) agreed to play dress-up, and Bean Brothers kindly agreed to lend us their gorgeous space for our shoot.
