Wedding event closes the show with a sweet treat

Feb '11
The Bride Show Abu Dhabi (Saturday 5 February) is set for a delicious finale as a new Abaya designer is crowned and an astounding edible catwalk show is staged in front of thousands of fashionistas.

Ten amateur designers – all of whom live and work in the UAE – will compete to win AED5,000 in the Abaya Design Awards, sponsored by Persil Abaya Shampoo which is especially created to ensure black remains black and to care for the elegant Abaya, particularly when it is embellished with delicate material and crystals.

Entrants were asked to submit mood boards to express an elegant, classical Abaya design suitable to wear to a glamorous wedding, providing details of the style, materials and embellishments. The 10 short-listed designs have now been created and admired by thousands of fashion lovers and brides-to-be at the prestigious wedding extravaganza.

A team of professional models will wear the Abayas down the catwalk at 5pm on Saturday 5 February while a panel of esteemed judges will vote for their favourite.

The design competition show will be followed by a sweet treat when ChoCo'a, a family-owned manufacturer and retailer of unique chocolate products and confectionery, dress models in edible outfits which are sure to wow crowds and have mouths watering.

Models will storm the catwalk wearing a wedding cake hat, a chocolate dress, a Hermes Birkin handbag cake and a leather dress embellished with brightly coloured macaroons. One model will be covered in traditional henna designs stenciled in chocolate rather than conventional dye.

The chocolate artisans unveiled earlier this week their Spring/Summer 2011 collection of chocolates which takes its inspiration from the fashion colour pallet reigning over the runways this year; citrus yellow, lime green and orange.

The Bride Show Abu Dhabi, organised by IIR Middle East and sponsored by Corniche Hospital, was opened by its patron Her Highness Sheikha Sheikha Bint Saif, wife of His Highness Sheikh Dr. Sultan Bin Khalifa Bin Zayed Al Nahyan.

The prestigious bridal event is followed by The Bride Show Dubai, which takes place from 30 March to 2 April 2011 at the Dubai International Exhibition Centre.
