Abstract

There are two realities when it comes to the white wedding gown. The first reality is that it is a powerful garment saturated with perceived tradition and symbolism. In this, how the bride looks is pivotal; the recent media frenzy over the style of Kate Middleton’s wedding gown in 2011 indicates that design is critical to the gown’s cultural value. The second reality is the negative impact of the fashion industry.
