What trends in traditional bridalwear do you need to know about? We asked Matome Seshoka of Antherline Couture Studio and this is what he had to say: “Mesh material is a must-do when creating your gown, and lace on Shweshwe is also big.
“Capes are very fashionable, too. Every bride needs a cape – they are the new veils, whether they are structured or flared.
“Peplum designs are also fashionable as are accessories which make a statement and reflect one’s heritage,” Matome says.
