I've been covering a lot of international fashion shows lately, and I have lots more to come, but for a change, here are some photos from the catwalk of a wedding exhibition which took place in Coventry last month.
Here's the collection by Midlands-based asian fashion rental company Rent a Lengha. I previously posted a poll on asian fashion blog, asking readers "would you hire a an asian outfit rather than buying?" and at the time of writing this, the poll results stand at 62% saying no, and 37% saying yes - so there's definitely a market for hiring!
This bridal is by Karma
Bridal by Maria B
In addition to bridalwear, they also had some formal outfits on the catwalk:
This black and gold trouser suit is by Sonia Azhar
The purple outfit below is by Zahra Ahmad
I must say I prefer the formal/semi formal outfits to the bridal range they have available. All the bridals seem to be a bit outdated, like the Maria B outfit for example, I tried this very same bridal on back in 2008 when I was doing research for my review of Imani Studio.
Then again, not everyone is as fashion conscious as I am, and perhaps the chance to wear a beautiful designer outfit for your big day, even if it's not from the most recent season is a dream come true for some people. I'd be interested to know if anyone has used this company - leave a comment and share your thoughts!
