FASHION designer and Teluk Belanga Design owner Jamil Sukaimi made the six sets of baju melayu that Dennis Muhammad Abdullah wore on his wedding day.
Dennis Muhammad looked dashing in the traditional outfits that were tailored from Italian wool satin, as he married Johor Princess Tunku Tun Aminah Maimunah Iskandariah Sultan Ibrahim.
The designs were approved by Johor Ruler Sultan Ibrahim Ibni Almarhum Sultan Iskandar for the royal akad nikah (solemnisation) and wedding ceremony, Utusan Malaysia reported.
Jamil said Dennis Muhammad’s outfit during the solemnisation ceremony matched the colour tone of Tunku Tun Aminah’s baju kurung – pearl white
“The fabric is of high quality to maintain the cut of the baju melayu and if you look closely, the sleeves are not folded.
“For those who are unaware, the folds, according to royal protocol, are only for royalty and their family members.
“So for him, I did not fold the sleeves and designed it like a regular baju melayu,” he said.
He said it was an honour to be chosen to supply the outfits for the royal couple, and that it was recognition of his workmanship.
> Despite getting hundreds of marriage proposals, cosmetics millionaire Datuk Seri Dr Hasmiza Othman, better known as Dr Vida, said that she wants someone “who is rich and not a married man”, reported Kosmo!’s entertainment pullout Hab Hib.
“I am pretty open about this. I do not want to end up with someone’s husband and the guy must be rich so he can buy me lots of handbags,” she said.
