The bride in her gomezi

01 Sep 2007

The bride in her gomezi

The sister to the groom (orange) holds up the hand of the groom's fiancé introducing her to the groom’s guests. The mugole (bride), as she will be referred to up until she gives birth to her first child, is wearing a fashionable pink gomezi with gold detail. There is pressure on a mugole to find a unique and expensive material that glitters and sets her apart from the female guests and relatives. The groom’s sister is also wearing the latest fashion of see through material.
