A New Orleans bride, Priscell Elease, decided to break boundaries by ditching the conventional wedding gown and wearing a wedding dress mixed with Ankara prints (Ghanaian wax).
Priscell who married a Ghanaian, wanted a dress which showcased her culture and that of her husband. The two piece masterpiece also gave her the options of pairing 2 different tops with her skirt.

”The “Priscell ” Dress look one of three
Here’s my #1 wedding dress ever! My very own wedding gown#thepriscelldress created by@tabithabethune . This custom couture gown took almost a year to create. I told her I want to honor my New Orleans Roots and my husband’s Ghanian Culture. We (she)decided to incorporate a Ghanian wax print and build from there. “The Priscell” dress is traditional and contemporary.”The Priscell”dress pays tribute to the beautiful New Orleans ball gowns women wear for Mardi Gras, yet its deep neatly tucked pockets make it hip. Not to mention the fact that its a two piece! This dress is beyond words- its an experience. It is a three piece ensemble. This is look #1.@tabithabethune is the most detailed designer. She strategically placed 10 crystals throughout the dress to represent my 10year relationship to@mainman77 . She also placed my great grandmother Priscilla’s pearls in my pocket as something old. Wow!”
