By Biya Haq | 12 Feb, 2018

If you’re a fashionista or have any kind of social media, you’ve probably noticed that it is currently Fashion Week in New York City. All the Bella Hadid’s, Gigi Hadid’s and Kendall Jenners of the world have come to don some of the most famous fashion designers in the industry.


Most of the time, everything on the runway in the fashion world is basically never ever EVER wearable by Desi’s around the world. Mostly because they look like this:

If you’re a Desi, you have DEFINITELY seen this hair clip around your house. And if you’re reallllllllly a Desi, you’ve broken quite a few of them and hidden the remains. (Sorry, mama.)

Wang brought the clip, aka the ‘claw’ clip to the runway in his show this past weekend. Suffice to say it took about three seconds for the world to get absolutely excited about the 90’s throwback.


Many said the look resembled the classic ‘Rachel’ look from Friends.

But we only see our Ammi’s here.


All in all, it seemed as if the look went well with people all over the interwebs as well.
