Vest, Shirt, And Skirt

This is a Vest, shirt, and skirt. It was designed by Rani Hatta and made for Rani Hatta.

This object is not part of the Cooper Hewitt's permanent collection. It was able to spend time at the museum on loan from Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco as part of Contemporary Muslim Fashions.

It is dated Spring/Summer Collection 2018. Its medium is cotton twill, metal eyes, cotton braid, synthetic tulle. It is a part of the department.


Rani Hatta has carved out a unique place for herself by showing men and women on her runway in similar styles. While gender-neutral clothing has not typically been associated with modest dress, Hatta believes that the oversize fit of her designs can serve the needs of those who dress modestly and also erase gender stereotypes.

It is credited Courtesy of Rani Hatta Private Collection.
