Monifah's Wedding Dress | A Walk through Time | June 2014

R & B Diva Star Wedding Dress Design by Gizzelle James Inc

Interview From Essence Magazine: 

How did you decide on that fierce, non-traditional gown?
MONIFAH: You know, that’s just me. I’m non-traditional anyway. I like to do me. I wasn’t walking down the aisle in a white dress. I love black. It’s striking, it’s beautiful, and you know what? It was my day! I designed the dress myself. It was a variation of three dresses that I saw that I loved. I put them together and it worked. The English netting, with the nude under-bodice, I loved. I had an amazing couturier and sketcher {Gizzelle James} who helped me bring the vision to life. I think I’m going to frame it!
