some exquisite designs in Asian fashion
The prestigious Pavilion Suite of the Edgbaston Cricket ground in Birmingham (UK), was where the Asian Bridal Fayre was held on 5th May 2008. The event had the innings to demonstrate the variety and magic of British Asian weddings and their culture.
DESIblitz went along to see what was on show at this gathering of exhibitors and catwalk models. The atmosphere buzzed with suppliers and visitors discussing what was on offer for would-be customers. A good variety of wedding fashions, jewellery displays, make-up and beauty services, card displays, photographers and food caterers were on exhibit.
Caterers the Spice Corner who specialise in a selection of food cuisine for weddings, had samples on display which were very nice indeed! Whilst, makeup beautician Sukhjeet Bahara of Sajja Beauty kindly demonstrated eye-makeup on model Nicole for DESIblitz, and Kal and Parminder gave some skincare and beauty tips.

The catwalk event was the highlight of the show with wedding fashions being provided by Nisha and Kareena Couture.
Sameena Ali Khan, presenter of ITV Central Television News, was the presenter of the fashion show.
The show kicked-off with the dhol playing skills of young Amar Johal (son of Ninder Johal of Nachural Records and Achanak tabla player). Then, followed some exquisite designs in Asian fashion of Eastern styles by Nisha and then a more Western look provided by Kareena. The models gave a wonderful performance and made it possible to see how these styles would look on would-be brides.
Organiser of the event Jackie Kelly was pleased with the day and will be looking at hosting more similar events in the future. To give you an insight into the event, DESIblitz has compiled videos and photos for you to enjoy!
