Night of Henna Guest Dress

Weddings are times of great celebration in Afghanistan.  This outift is one which would be worn by a guest invited to the festivities the night before the wedding.  Women who are close friends and family of the bride join together for a celebration that often includes dancing, eating, and putting henna on their hands and feet, signifying their joy and wishes for a happy marriage.

The purplish/lavender dress was made by the artist Hadeja and is $35

and the Burgundy and Green guest dress was made by the artisit Sakina and is also $35
