This is a Outerwear tunic, caftan, blouse, shoes, scarf, inner cap, necklace, and clutch. It was designed by Itang Yunasz and MannaQueen and made for Itang Yunasz.

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 Tribalux Collection, 2018. Its medium is silk velvet, embroidery, silk satin, synthetic pearl buttons, printed silk crepe, spandex, cotton velvet, indigo-dyed cotton ikat .

In the early 2000s, almost twenty years after launching his fashion line, Itang Yunasz shifted his work to modest wear. He was inspired by his wife’s decision to cover at a time when there were very few options for fashionable modest dress. Yunasz has a deep knowledge and appreciation of his country’s rich textile heritage, which he both references and incorporates in his designs.

It is credited Courtesy of Itang Yunasz.
