For the Middle Eastern bride, couture wedding gowns represent hallowed grounds, acting not only as statement pieces that define status, but also indicators of the bride’s high taste levels. The Fall 2016 Couture season contained wedding dresses that were backed by both traditionalism and experimentation, proving that the modern bride is spoiled for choice when it comes to the type of gown she ends up wearing on her special day.
Brands like Ralph & Russo provided fluffy, fairytale dresses, while Rami Kadi put a colorful spin on wedding couture by adorning his traditional gown with vivid laser-cut flowers. For the non-traditional bride, Chanel opted for a pink suit trimmed in marabou feathers, and Armani Privé accented a silky gown with an oversized black bow.
