Breaking stereotypes with wedding gowns in Xinjiang

CGTN published this video item, entitled “Breaking stereotypes with wedding gowns in Xinjiang” – below is their description.

In Xinjiang, traditions still hold that women aren’t allowed to leave the house freely and dress as they wish. Even wearing a white gown in wedding is not accepted in some areas. Samira Arkin, who owns a bridal shop in Kashgar, wants women to embrace their independence and openly express their wish to be beautiful.

This is one of many stories in CGTN’s exclusive documentary “Beyond the Mountains: Life in Xinjiang.” Watch the full documentary here:
