Headwrap hijack at Melbourne wedding

The worst fashion mistake you can make at a wedding is to steal the bride’s thunder by dressing in white. I recently attended the nuptials of Melbourne friends Melissa and Marshall and stayed well away from that oily caper by dressing in my custom made Unisa Jalloh matchy with clashing head-wrap.

I felt pretty excited to be wearing an original Sierra Leonian design,  but when the bride made her dramatic entrance I wanted to down several more champagnes and then run for cover.

Melissa had teamed her stunning Carla Zampatti floor length white lace gown with the exact same head wrap that I was wearing. She assured me there were no hard feelings and we agreed that it was just an unfortunate mistake and not an attempt on my part to compete with the bride. I think this head wrap fiasco is also a testament to the growing popularity of the wrap in the global fashion scene. Congratulations M and M, wishing you a long, happy and fashionable life together.
