The Asiana Bridal Show in London Catwalk Review part 2: Kirans

Kirans was one of the exhibitors at the fashion show, who are from outside London. They're from Birmingham and after the show we visited their stand to discover that their prices are quite reasonable. Whereas most boutiques/designers would be charging a minimum of £1000 for a bridal outfit, and even that would be a plain design, I found a fab outfit at Kirans which they said was £850...and it really was beautiful! I didn't manage to snap a pic of it, but here's what they had to show on the catwalk:

The main colour themes at the Kirans show were red and green


I'm not too keen on the ruffles of the skirt, I think ruffles can look nice - just not a FULL SKIRT of them!


Up next were some dresses, not quite full-on traditional bridal dresses, but still amazing looking, and with some elegant details. They also showed off a bit of their menswear too.


I really like the back of this red one, I know the front it the most important thing, but it's always nice to see an outfit where the designers have made an effort to make it look good from all angles.

Up next were some more traditional outfits:


Now I have to say I didn't LOVE these outfits, they wouldn't be my personal choice but I liked them and I think they looked good. The masks looked cool too, but I'd probably advise against copying that trend unless you're wedding theme is as a masquerade ball!

The final outfit from Kiran's with this strapless top with a full skirt and a train. The colours haven't come out so well in the first pic, but you can get an idea from the second.



I think the next time I'm in Birmingham I'll have to nip into Kirans to check them out...or seeing as I'm never in Birmingham just for the sake of it, perhaps I'll make a trip specially to visit!

Up next time - Puja Silk House.

  2. For that particular outfit from Frontier Bazar I think it would be made to order. They do not have a UK stockist as far as I know. The best thing to do is call or email them saying you saw the Asiana Show in London and liked the light gold & teal green/blue lengha that the model Hamasa wore. The contact I have for them is:

    Frontier Bazar 5/71 W.E.A.
    Padam Singh Road
    Karol Bagh
    New Delhi 1100045
    India

    E-Mail: gne@nda.vsnl.net.in
    E-Mail: info@frontierbazar.com

    Tel: 011 25731139 or 25447968

    There are also some alternative tel no.s on the website: www.frontierbazar.com

    They may be able to email you pictures of other new designs they have too; worth a try.

    Hope that helps!

  3. Love Kiran's outfits, amazing designs. After seeing their catwalk I visited their store and must say they lived up to my expectations. Great customer service and lovely people! I recommend buying your special day outfits from them!
