Mahogany Bridal Fashion Show
The Mahogany Bridal Fashion Show is undoubtedly the largest African Caribbean bridal showcase in Europe. Now in its 14th year this unmissable annual celebration of African Caribbean bridal culture took place on Sunday 20th March 2011 at the Holiday inn Bloomsbury, London.
It featured a range of wedding exhibitors from caterers, photographers, wedding planners, makeup artists and so much more. The stands were exquisitely decorated with lots of discounts available, tastings, samples and lots of giveaways for the visitors to the bridal show.
The highlight of the day was the two fashion shows that featured some of the best new and emerging designers that the UK had to offer. The ranges included sustainable bridal wear by Jose Hendo, accessories provided by Divine Creations a great mother and daughter team as well as the debut collection of Adopted Culture which is the design label of the 2010 Top Model of Colour winner Nana Afua, who is not only on her way to being a top model but is well on her way to being a top designer. The show included some great evening and bridal wear from Reka Orosz, Link Boutique, Stency Kidega and Maureen Amooti. The designs were a mixture of western traditional, white wedding dresses mixed alongside some great African inspired designs.
Live Music was provided by A1 Ballads Saxophonist.
The Mahogany Bridal Fashion Show is all about presenting alternative options for the bride and groom to wear on their wedding day and visitors being able to find goods and services that meet their cultural needs.
