When I saw this dress in my cousin’s closet, I was immediately drawn by the color.
There was something mystical, yet regal and majestic about it. My cousin told me she was gifted this Saudi Arabian dress by one of her closest friends while she was still in university. This unique dress is worn for special occasions such as weddings and I was so excited to borrow it specifically for this sunset-inspired shoot.
I particularly liked the bejeweled shoulder details, with silver and turquoise beads which were all painstakingly hand sewed to create this elegant piece.
This shoot was taken at Captain Terrace Restaurant, which has a breathtaking view of the Nairobi National Park… just perfect for sun downers!
