In case you aren’t aware, Ramadhan is drawing upon us (in a month, to be exact) and the next thing you know, it’s already Hari Raya.
So, during that period, all the mak cik bawangs
, fashionistas, and hijabistas of the world will be on the hunt for their next Hari Raya outfit and hijab style.
And if you happen to be on the lookout for the next big trend, look no further as we’ve got something that’ll definitely turn heads.
is the latest fad to take our fashion industry by storm as the style literally mimics how a pocong
may look like.
The hijab, designed by local designer Azzim Aziz, went viral not only in Malaysia but in Indonesia as well.
Some were amused while others mocked Azzim’s creation, but that did not deter his sales as his Bawal Pocong were sold out after news about it spread like wildfire on social media.
Each hijab is sold for RM40
and comes in seven colours.
The Baling-based designer said that he initially did not plan to design a pocong
“We decided to tie the ends of the bawal
scarf as a topknot to try something different but after the photoshoot only did we see the resemblance and decided to call it Bawal Pocong,”Azzim told The Malay Mail
in an interview.
So, are you guys brave enough to try out this hijab trend? Just be sure not to get offended if someone mistakes you for a real pocong
If you’re sad that the hijab is sold out, fret not as they are in the midst of restocking it. For more updates, follow Azzim’s Instagram page
