Taking you from the streets of Vietnam to the beautiful 2012 Saja Bridal Wedding collection, this week’s Happenings cater to the feminine side with a touch of war hero and a sprinkle of underground hip-hop. I think I’ll be wearing a white dress to the movies.

If you’re looking for a gorgeous dress for the holidays, the New Year, or happen to be walking down the aisle sometime soon, you may want to check out the 2012 Wedding Collection at the Saja Store in New York on October 12.
Saja was founded in 2000 by Korean designer Yoo Lee. Beginning as a seller of women’s contemporary collections, Lee narrowed Saja’s focus to wedding and special occasion dresses.
Despite its soft and whimsical feel, Saja, in Korean, means lion – hiding a strong, powerful interior of force over its’ lustfully delicate fabric.
