UAE couturier for Bride Show Abu Dhabi
Dubai, January 8, 2009
Ahmed Al Reyaysa, who made his name as the first UAE national couturier and known as the King of Wedding Dresses, will be exhibiting his label Dar Sara at The Bride Show Abu Dhabi.
The event will be held from January 21 to 24, 2009, at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre.
With more fashion shows than any other event in the capital, brides-to-be and fashion enthusiasts can find ideas from 16 fashion shows featuring top regional and international designers, said an official spokesman.
Al Reyaysa will be on hand at the exhibition for his label Dar Sara’s fashion show. The Dar Sara show will feature an inspiring collection of wedding dresses and gowns from the man who has dressed a host of Arab and international female celebrities.
With dresses priced from Dh50,000 ($13,616) to Dh1 million, the collection ranges a variety of styles and colours, often making use of intricately applied Swarovski crystals and beading.
The Dar Sara collection is one of the most highly anticipated fashion shows at The Bride Show and Al Reyaysa is eager to put the UAE firmly on the map for creative fashion design.
“Designs for Dar Sara depend on a fusion of natural elements and my imagination, so the UAE has factored heavily in my environment and creative process,” said Al Reyaysa.
“While I’ve been at The Bride Show with other leading design houses, this year I am participating individually, revealing to the world my designs for bridal couture and proudly representing the talented fashion designers in the UAE.”
“We are excited to have such talent exhibiting at The Bride Show Abu Dhabi and look forward to seeing Ahmed Al Reyaysa’s fashion house, Dar Sara, become a household name,” said exhibition manager, The Bride Show, Daphne Cota.
Sharing the stage with Ahmed Al Reyaysa’s Dar Sara collection, haute couture fashion houses like Ghawashi and Scallini and Abaya designers like Mauzan and Abu Haleeqa will also take to the runway unveiling their latest bridal collections.
German retailer Cecile’s show is also a catwalk highlight, as models present exquisite designs from prized labels Elie Saab, Ungaro and Valentino.
The Bride Show Abu Dhabi is the largest wedding and fashion event in the capital; at the 2008 event more than 200 wedding industry experts and suppliers from around the world came together under one roof in a showcase of international design excellence and consummate style.
The Bride Show Abu Dhabi will be the first must-attend event for brides-to-be in 2009 and will be followed by The Bride Show Dubai from April 8 to 11, 2009, at the Dubai International Exhibition Centre. – TradeArabia News Service
