Wedding Dress And Abaya, Autumn/Winter Collection 1998–99
In the Najd and Riyadh regions of Saudi Arabia, weddings are multi-day events during which the bride wears several different outfits. This gown and the one next to it were custom made for special clients to celebrate tihwal, an event hosted by the groom’s family that commemorates the bride’s move to her husband’s home. Each gown is slim fitting with a flared hem, a signature silhouette for tihwal and one that is also popular for contemporary brides around the world.
