Troukoors se Trouroktendense vir 2017 ►

Trouroktendense gee jou gewoonlik ’n idee van watter nuwe roksnitte geskik is vir die moderne bruid. Niko en Arnold van The Boys Couture gesels oor die nuutste modes wat gewild gaan wees dié jaar.

Die Global Village waarin ons leef kan maklik die indruk skep dat enigiets gepas is. Bruide het meer keuses as ooit tevore en dit raak soms moeilik om tred te hou met die nuutste trouroktendense.

Die beste plan en beginpunt is om eers op ’n styl te besluit wat by jou figuur pas. Vergeet onmiddellik van vrugtevorms, soos “ek is ’n peer of ’n druiwetros”. Maak ’n afspraak by ’n ontwerper of bruidsalon en pas verskillende tipe rokke aan. Die konsultant ken figure en weet wat goed sal lyk aan jou lyf.

Om dit makliker te maak, gee ons ’n paar van die nuutste trouroktendense vir 2017 en selfs 2018. Onwerpers werk altyd vooruit. Diep halslyne, v-vorms en oop neklyne bly gewild, maar hang af van die bruid se vorm en buustelyn. Dieselfde geld vir lae- en oopruglyne. Dit is baie mooi, sensueel en in die mode, maar kan maklik soos ’n soufflé lyk wat platgeval het.

Hierdie trouroktendense gaan koning kraai in 2017/2018:

DIE SNIT
DIE MEERMIN: Kan slegs gedra word deur slank, lang bruide en wys elke kurwe van die liggaam.
DIE A-LYN STYL: Hierdie styl werk aan die meeste tipe figure, van baie klein tot voller figure.
PRINSESBALROK: Altyd ’n gunsteling, maar kan maklik lyk of dit ’n sikloon in ontwikkelingstadium is. Hiervoor moet jy lank wees, maar kan voller of kleiner van figuur wees. Minder is meer. Dit bly tydloos en sjiek, maar jy wil nie gril vir jou rok oor tien jaar of hoor “hoe kon ma daardie rok gedra het” nie. Wees altyd versigtig vir te veel materiaal – jy is ’n vrou, mooi en uniek, nie ’n “tent” nie.

DIE KLEUR
Kleur speel natuurlik ’n groot rol op die spesiale dag. Gelukkig is die era van: “Dit moet wit wees my kind,” verby. Die nuuste internasionale trouroktendense is baie beter. Kleure, soos blush, sjampanje, ligte sjerrie of vleeskleur is hoogmode. Dit kan versag word met sagte kant en ivoorkleurige of sagte wit lae material wat bo-oor gebruik word. Die gedagte is om ’n nuwe, of jou eie, kleur te skep vir jou dag. ’n Bruid met ’n ligte vel, lyk semi-dood in wit, soos ’n bruid met ’n blas vel lyk asof sy geelsig het in ’n roomkleurige rok.
Kant is voor in die ry as dit by detail kom. Vir die wat van blink hou, voeg dit gerus by, maar wees versigtig om nie in ’n Kersboom te verander nie.

Moue wat uit sagte fyn kant gemaak is bly gewild, maar moet perfek pas. Tradisioneel is dit gebruik op grond van kultuur of geloofsoortuigingsredes. In 2017 word moue gebruik om sagte vel te verbloem of om hitte te gee. Die meeste trouplekke het lugreëling, so moue is opsioneel en ’n persoonlike keuse.

Die belangrikste raad wat ons vir ’n bruid kan gee, is om vroegtydig die regte onderklere en skoene te koop. Onthou dat jou skoene nie presies by die rokkleur hoef te pas nie. Maak dan jou afspraak met die ontwerper of bruidsalon. Neem jou idees saam en wys die spesialis waarvan jy hou. Pas verskillende rokke aan, nie net die wat jy dink jy wil hê nie, dit is dikwels nie wat jou op jou mooiste sal laat lyk nie. Ander style gee insig en verander die manier waarop jy na jouself kyk. Bepaal altyd eers die styl en kleur, dan kan jy besluit oor detailsoos kant, krale, watter tipe sluier, juwele en afronding.

Jacarandafm - Good Morning Angels Matric Dance Special ►

GMA Matric Dance Special

Published: 9 Sep 2015, 7:17 a.m. by Bronwyn Hardick -

Making Matriculants' Cinderella and Prince Charming moments come true with the help of Niko and Arnold from "The Boys"

Recipient:

Karabo Lekobane from Munsieville, Krugersdorp

Angel:

Niko and Arnold from "The Boys"

Sponsoring:

The Boys are proudly South African designers based in Pretoria and have been in the fashion, styling and beauty industry for 20 years, specialising in Wedding and Evening Couture. They want Karabo to look and feel like a princess on her big day and have invited her to visit their studio in Pretoria for a free consultation and figure analysis. They will then shop with Karabo for the perfect fabric, then design and make her dream dress to the value of R20,000!

Background:

Karabo stays in a two roomed house in Munsieville township outside Krugersdorp. She lives in the house with her mom and four siblings – as well as her aunt, uncle and their five children. She is a hard working young lady. Her performance at school is very impressive – especially when you think of her situation. She was awarded the academic achiever certificate for the first six months of 2015. She studies very hard because she wants to become a doctor. Karabo braves through any tribulations and has a positive outlook on life. I know her from our church. Karabo sings in the choir and she is in the leadership of the youth group (Redeemed youth). Karabo would never complain, but I know she would love to go to her schools' matric farewell and I know that her family cannot afford a new dress. Could you please help to show this hardworking young lady, that her efforts are noticed and that she is very special indeed, by helping us find a dress for her.

Regards,

Ivy
