The Ardhanginni Indian Wedding, Destination and Lifestyle Show took place last month at London's Olympia.
When I wrote my pre-event blog post and asked users on twitter whether they would be attending, I got feedback that the ticket prices (£10 for the exhibition and £30 for the fashion show) were a little too expensive, especially when you consider that nobody goes to these type of events on their own, for example a bride-to-be plus two friends who wanted to view the fashion show would end up paying nearly £100.
Taking the price into account, I had very high hopes for the fashion show. I expected to be blown away by all the beautiful indian bridal outfits and was especially looking forward to seeing the collection by Neeta Lulla who had showcased some beautiful bridals she designed for RCKC at the 2010 Asiana Elite Bride Show.
Sadly, this fashion show didn't live up to my expectations. There just weren't enough "bridal" outfits considering this show was billed as an "indian wedding" event.
I'll be posting full collections from each designer, but here's a summary of the show:
Mani Kohli - Khubsoorat Collection
Saffron by Nidhi Tholia
Nivedita Saboo Couture
Look out for my next few blog posts covering each designer collection in more detail.
