After she completed the works, Asiya delivered it to Amman, where the wedding party goes on, through September 6 – 8. Caucasus Times correspondent quoted Asiya as saying the dress has turned out gorgeous and ethnical correct according to all Adyghe (Circassian) traditions, with the belt having at least 90 lions figures engraved on gilded silver plates, a fastener with a tiny dagger, the dress richly decorated with chest, shoulder ornamentation.
