New York has one…India has one…and now (well technically yesterday), the opulent SA Bridal Fashion Week™ launched at Sibaya Casino in Durban, South Africa. Fresh off the heels of the successful Cape Town Fashion Week, this event which runs from Aug 7th to Aug 10, will be South Africa’s only national wedding fashion event and one that targets all race groups across the rainbow nation.

 In celebration of this groundbreaking new era, the folks over at Haute Fashion Africa (Africa’s foremost African Fashion Website) compiled their favorite unconventional Wedding Dresses from Cape Town Fashion Week’s SS 2015 collections:
