Fashion at the 2014 Premier Asian Wedding Show in Manchester

Last weekend, the Midland Hotel in Manchester held host to the 2014 Premier Asian Wedding Show.

Now I'm trying to cut down on the number of wedding exhibitions I attend, but seeing as this one was very local to me and entry was free I decided to pop along with fellow blogger Rabbia from Asian Wedding Ideas.

The fashion show at this event featured five collections, here's a closer look at some of the outfits!

Faika Karim

Based in Bradford, this store focuses on Pakistani fashion. These two dresses were my favourites.

Asian Bride Live Birmingham 2014 - First Look

The ICC in Birmingham hosted the Asian Bride Live show today and I was lucky enough to be invited by the Asian Bride Magazine team to attend. I had a front-row seat for the catwalk and took over 400 photos!

I'll be posting a full write up all of the outfits I saw at the show, but in the meantime, here's a first look at some of my favourite outfits from each designer.

Bibi London
Bibi London showcased their collection of named designer outfits including Shyamal and Bhumika. I loved these two floor-length anarkali-style dresses.

Asian fashion trend: peplum style lehngas and dresses

There was a time when peplum shaped tops and dresses could be found in almost every high street shop in the UK, but recently I'm starting to notice this shape being used a bit more in asian outfits. Here are some of the outfits I've found which work this trend!

For anyone that's unsure of what makes the peplum shape, the definition of a peplum is "A short overskirt or ruffle attached at the waistline of a jacket, blouse, or dress".
