This is the first post in the year of 2012. I want to wish you all the best and may Alloh SWT bless you in the future days.
Here is a quotation I love from People Who Inspire Us which I think would be a good spirit for us on starting our new days in 2012 :
Inspire yourself and others will be inspired. Motivate yourself and others will be motivated. Develop yourself and others will start to develop themselves.
Be an example first and then the world changes around you.

Today, I want to share a great news on Muslimah Fashion and some style tips I found at the end of 2011, and several new modest clothing lines for women.
A great news, especially for Indonesia, came from Paris, France.
As you have read from my previous post here about The International Fair of The Muslim World 2011 in Le Bourget Exhibition Center, Paris, on December 2011, thirteen top muslimah fashion designers from Indonesia held an exhibition/fashion show to showcase their designs and collection in that event.
And... the great news is... the fashion designs from Indonesian designers become THE BEST and THE MOST FAVORITE at this International Fair in Paris, France!!
Indonesia also get an honour as the honourable country, L'Indonesie Pays D'Honneur (negara kehormatan). This means that Indonesia can be the world's hub of Muslim Fashion.
Yeeyy... I love to hear this and I am glad for you, Indonesia! :)
Next International Fair of the Muslim World InshaAllah will be held on November 2, 3 and 4, 2012, in Le Bourget - Paris. So, keep an eye out! ;)
