The South Asian Bridal show is the only bridal fashion show in Australia where designers from all over the South Asian Region come together on a single platform to showcase their work.
This show, unlike any other typical fashion show, isn’t just about fashion. This show displays culture, traditions and rituals blended in an atmosphere where the charm and bliss of weddings across the South Asian continent come alive on stage with live performances and extraordinary choreography by a talented panel of artists, making it a show not to be missed.
This year, we have decided to tap into Sydney as we see a huge potential in the bridal market. We have tied up with the prestigious Four Seasons hotel in association with Mrs Dilkie Perera from Savish.
The main idea of the bridal show is to bring everything under one roof — from event planners, hair dressers, make-up artists, photographers, decorators, florists, venues, musicians to jewellery.
We’ve had the privilege of exhibiting Waidurya By Gamya Wijedasa, Savish by Sav Jainudeen, Vitamin by Sonalika Pradhan (all Melbourne-based) and Sari by Zaaj and Lamyra Jewels (Sydney-based).
United Nepali Arts and Entertainment Australia, under the guidance of Bhawana Samba and Sunita Limbu, made their special appearance and showcased Nepali talents alongside Monsuun Dancers who opened the show with their outstanding performances.
In addition to dances and fashion, we’ve had the participation of Vishvajeet Pradhan, a famous Bollywood actor, and many male and female beauty pageant winners on one runway — Miss Heena Mohan Lal — Mrs Fiji 2015 for Mrs Universe, Enu Narulaa — Mrs India for Mrs Universe 2015, Indian model Preeti Daga, Rede Carney — winner Australia for Mr Asia World 2016 and Chris Zishis — Mr Asia Culture International 1st Runner-up and Miss Sri Lanka Australia 2016 pageant participants.
The breath-taking décor has been provided by Decor by Tahir of Tajmahal Events and the limousines sponsored by M1 and photography By Rizzography.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank our event partners Festivals of South Asia, The Indian Sun and Taj Mahal Events for their support throughout the event.
