Wedding dress

Wedding dress of Adi Litia Mara Dugdale, worn on 31 August 1991. The decorations of flowers and beads were done by Liebling Marlow and a lady from Lau. Adi Litia’s dress was the first contemporary wedding dress in Fiji to be made completely out of masi and created a trend in the use of masi to make contemporary wedding dresses. Many young Fijian women who get married today tend to incorporate the use of masi and other contemporary elements when choosing and designing their dresses. Designed and made by Annie Bonza of New Zealand.
