Apr '10
His Excellency Abdul Rahman Al Ghurair, Chairman of Dubai Commerce and Industry has officially inaugurated The Bride Show Dubai with a ceremonial ribbon cutting, followed by a tour of Halls 1, 2 and 3 of the Dubai International Exhibition Centre, where he met regional and international exhibitors and was treated to a preview fashion show by Vikram Phadnis.

Phadnis, a hot Bollywood designer and celebrity favourite, is taking part in the four day fashion and bridal extravaganza for the first time and wowed a big audience of brides-to-be and fashionistas with the first of 14 fashion shows during the exhibition. His latest collection, debuted for the first time in Dubai, featured a flamboyant array of dresses with defined silhouettes in warm colours to suit the UAE market.

The remaining opening day fashion shows wowed the crowds as the team of professional models graced the catwalk in embellished abayas by Al Motahajiba Abayas, jalabiyas and kaftans for Indulge by Divya Oswal and exquisite bridal gowns by local favourite and long-time Bride Show supporter Jalal M. Khan Est. “Demetrios”.

One of the biggest features to get eyes popping and camera bulbs flashing was the 16ft tall wedding cake created by the culinary masters at the Shangri-la Hotel in Dubai. One of the largest cakes ever to be made in the region, it will be on display in the Hotel Zone of the exhibition until 10:30pm on Saturday 10 April.

The new Bridal Lounge, an interactive demonstration area for brides-to-be to gain inspiration, advice and tips, proved to be very popular on the first day.

Senior make up artists from MAC Cosmetics and hair stylists from Jamil Style, a l'Oréal Professionnel salon explained the techniques they adopt in order to create flawless make up and hair for weddings.

Women's World Live, the new exhibition running alongside The Bride Show Dubai welcomed lots of visitors in fitness gear, which granted them free admission, to take part in an exercise class wearing Kangoo Jumps boots, Latino Cardio, Body Combat and Dubai Drums, a group drumming session which is proven to raise endorphin levels. The free health checks at the Philips stand were also a popular feature on the first day.

The Bride Show Dubai and Women's World Live run from Wednesday 7 April to Saturday 10 April, open from 2:30pm until 10:30pm. Children under 12 are not permitted. Entry is 10dhs per person or free if you come in gym gear to take part in Women's World Live fitness classes.
