Nuptials and Fashion: the Case of the Kabyle Acculturation

In this paper, we propose to interpret how Algerian women use fashion during wedding ceremonies to assert their position in society especially within the Kabyle sub-culture that just opened up to exogamic marriages. Results show that new consumptions of Arabo-Islamic codes allow women to participate indirectly in the current inter/ intra acculturation process in Algeria although ambiguities and tensions remain vivid.
