Great Wedding Dresses from Kazakhstan

red wedding dressblue wedding dressThese are traditional Kazakh wedding dresses one can buy at Tsum department store in Almaty, Kazakhstan.  I don’t understand all the intricacies of the patterns and designs but I think they are very pretty.  Usually brides nowadays use a western style wedding dress.  It’s lovely to see the dresses that were used in earlier, happier years.  The girl in mosaic below was taken from a place along the way to Charyn Canyon.  I thought it was colorful and showed the traditional style which young, Kazakh girls used to wear.girl mosaic

    I like the first dress most.

    I noticed more and more brides using traditional dresses, especially in the villages.

    I like the second dress, although it’s more a modern version of the traditional dress. Especially the color is beautiful.

    Nice photos. Thank you.

    ‘Used to wear’. So true. The Soviet stigma makes our young to select all the dark shades of blue, black and gray… Once a few years ago I decided to literally dump all of my clothes (99% dull deep dark colours) and go on a shopping spree to give myself a new look that would more truthfully represent who I really am. I had strongly felt the need to shed off my old alter imposed upon me by the environmet. Interestingly enough, I got on with all light and brighter colours ever since. 🙂
