A bridal collection with an air of Morocco

Written by Souad El Mghari

For its Bridal Spring/Summer 2016 Runway Show, the NYC based label Houghton went for a bohemian style with a major Moroccan inspiration.

For the more free-spirited boho bride, this Houghton collection is the perfect match. With unexpected bridal outfits; from the tailored jumpsuits, to the tulle skirts paired with white cotton t-shirts, the collection also included more traditional wedding dresses in the usual lace, chiffon, and silk, but still keeping the designer Katharine Polk’s unassuming and simple sophistication.

A breath of fresh air; the flowy collection, also described as “a bohemian odyssey through different decades and tribes”, had an air of Morocco. Not only in terms of the venue of the show, which was full of ethnic accents with rugs, poufs, and other details, but also in the dresses’ bohemian esthetic, which automatically reminds us of Morocco in the 70’s, and a little bit of YSL’s Marrakech.
