With wedding season in full swing most of us are in search for that beautiful one-piece long sleeve stunning gown. It’s this time of year that Muslim women, hijabi and non-hijabi, struggle the most. While it’s definitely become a bit easier to find long sleeve gowns at the mall and in certain fashion marketplaces, the variety is still scant. That’s why I make it my job to scout these dresses and make them available to you if I can.
I recently debuted a few that I think you are going to l.o.v.e. Starting with this black and blue sequin number. It has got to be one of the most beautiful gowns I’ve ever seen, and guess who’s the designer? Badgley Mischka! I adore that fashion house because not only are their gowns effortlessly regal but they offer options that are fully covered. This one in particular covered the body entirely aside from a small v-neck that had sheer mesh fabric at the chest area, but I easily covered it with my scarf so you couldn’t tell. If you remember, this dress was available at the 2nd Annual PFH Trunk Show back in September. It’s originally $800 and sold for $350.
The flow of the dress was something else; it had a train that flowed so beautifully with every step. I had to wear 6” heels with it because it comes with a generous train but I didn’t mind. Not to mention THE SPARKLE; the sequin on this gown is so richly crafted that with every angle it shined in a different way. Some times the blue sequin was the dominant hue, and in other settings the black was. During the daylight the dress has a certain effect, and during the night it’s a completely different ensemble. It was a dress to remember.
Unfortunately this dress is sold out everywhere but I’m hopeful it’ll get restocked. You can get your name on the waiting list at the site I tagged below. If you’re eager to get your hands on one that’s similar then go to your fashion district, pick a similar fabric, and get this puppy custom made by your favorite tailor!
I paired the gown with a navy silk georgette KINZA scarf. For weddings I always turn to KINZA’s solid silk georgette collection because of its fancy and luxurious fabrics. Not to mention, it always comes out so nicely in pictures.
I want to see all the glamorous gowns you lovely ladies are rocking to Spring weddings. Tag your photos #PFHgowns so I can comment and see!
