When I received an email "Wedding Stress" a couple of weeks ago, I was not expecting the gentleman to request a bespoke tie in the same week he was getting married! Alas, what a typical man one might think!
But when I had the chance to meet Magdi Fernandes, he politely explained how the wedding was quickly arranged because it was one of those special moments, where both the Groom's and Bride's families was going to be in London at the same from different countries, which I thought was very rare and exciting!
During our conversation I asked Mr. Fernandes why he favoured a cotton tie over silk ones for his wedding? And he explained that as a Muslim, he practised wearing cotton as opposed to silk, which is reserved for the ladies. This inspired me because I believe that style should always complement ones way of life and I was pleased to be apart of creating something personal for a special occasion, which holds so much value such as a personal belief.
Such is one of the many beauties of a bespoke tie. Mr. Fernandes chose this beautiful exotic paisley cotton fabric from Liberty.
If you could have any tie made for you, what colour or fabric would it be and why? Leave your comments below.
