They say bridal season is from June to October, but love is all seasons. My best friend Ika showed her love for her culture and family by merging elements of her Indonesian heritage with modern American themes for her wedding day.
Here is a Youtube video by Gustavo Thomas featuring Balinese Dance
Similar to her wedding theme, Ika wanted a bridal dress which was a fusion of a Kebaya and a modern day wedding gown. As I stated in the blog “An Indonesian Dream Dress” a Kebaya is a long tunic generally donned by women in Indonesia, Malaysia and other Southeast Asian countries. The bridal kebaya features embroidered beaded lace of various colors.
I then drew a sketch based upon her request. Although the bridal Kebaya was her main inspiration, she wanted a simpler dress with an elegant back detail.
