IFF 2008: Bridal Wear

Day 2 of the Islamic Fashion Festival saw designers showcasing bridal collections. I love the Eastern twist to the white wedding gown, but not so keen on the skin-tight options! That is one of the qualms I have with events such as IFF, in that the original purpose was to promote creativity in clothing within Islamic guidelines, which is often challenging. I see it as a failure of this challenge when some of the outfits aren't quite up to scratch. Anyhow, I'm loving the general concepts, and here are some beautiful pictures from the show:

nice dresses, though some of these dresses are a bit too "puffy" if you'd ask me. But i guess that's just a matter of taste.

sis Jana, you've done a great job for this website! i've been coming back to checkout the new updates.

these bridal dresses are beautiful.
however, i do hope that one day, we have our own islamic bridal dresses without having to "copy" the western bridal dresses.

Jana,Your comments are right on..i agree, some are not conforming to Islamic standards of dress, but the last one does, and it is very beautiful...a bit 'renaissance' looking but it's a fashion show!!'s supposed to be over the top. a bride could take the things she likes from it and 'make it her own''s very elegant and gorgeous...w/o the puffy sleeves. love the head scarf and crown on this one..w/veil. So very pretty
