I was at the Asiana Magazine's bridal show in London this weekend. The highlight of the exhibition was the fashion show, featuring collections from:
Seasons India, Frontier Bazar, Payal Collection, Puja Silk House, RCS Menswear, Roshans, Sana Designerwear, Kirans, Ishq Couture, Monga’s, Shakuntlam and jewellery by Kyles.
Here's my report from the catwalk, starting with Frontier Bazar, some of the pictures are a bit rubbish, but what can I say, I'm not a professional photographer and people kept sticking their stupid heads in my way! :p
Frontier Bazar kicked off their section of the show with this red and gold Anarkali-style churidar suit - complete with matching hat!
I don't know about you, but that outfit didn't exactly make a good first impression on me...neither did this one:
However, my interest soon picked up when some sparkly, beautiful, elegant outfits came onto the catwalk:
Check out the open back on that one! I noticed quite a few open/oval-shaped cut-outs on the back of the Frontier Bazar collection.
Frontier Bazar definitely saved the best for last, modelled by former Miss England Hammasa Kohistani, this was by far my favourite outfit from the collection:
I liked the colour combination, the gold with a hint of blue and it was oh so sparkly! I also love the jewellery, especially that thing on her head!!
All the jewellery was from Kyles in London (website here) and after the show we found ourselves at the Kyles exhibition stand chatting to the owner (who is a really nice lady!) and she told us that particular bridal hair accessory is called a shingar patti. That accessory wasn't on my bridal jewellery shopping list before now, but now I really want one!!
That's all for now, look out for the next update, featuring more pics and commentary from the Asiana Bridal Fashion show
