If I say ‘Gypsy’ to you, an image like this may come to mind :

but modern day Irish and U.K gypsies look more like this :

Most of these images are stills from Channel 4 TV show ‘Big Fat Gypsy Weddings’ the images above show wedding dresses, communion dresses, bridesmaid dresses, sweet 16 party dresses and everday outfits which are popular among modern gypsy/traveller women in the U.K and Ireland.

Gives a whole new meaning to ‘princess dress’ doesn’t it?
