This week theme
The Peranakan, a rich hybrid of Chinese and Malay traditions with the touch of Portuguese, Dutch and Indonesian influences. The culture refers men as ‘baba’ and ladies, ‘nyonya’ or ‘bibik for older women. This is the Peranakan traditional wedding costume donned on the bride. Geometric layering around at her neck is the phoenix collar to symbolise the power of the feminine phoenix in Peranakan society.
This is so beautiful, and i love the phoenix theme.
