Abu Dhabi, January 24, 2011
The tenth edition of The Bride Show Abu Dhabi, a glamorous bridal and fashion extravaganza, will showcase the very best in fashion design talent from around the GCC.
The event will take place at Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre from February2 to 5.
It will feature UAE designers Dar Maryam Al Shaibani and Al Mansouri Fashion, Bahraini fashion house Anmar Couture and Kuwaiti designer Awatif Al Hai.
Haute couture design houses which have cut their cloth in the UAE, such as Dar Sara and Arushi, will also display show stopping creations on the runway.
“The Bride Show Abu Dhabi has become a must-attend date in any fashionista’s calendar for the last 10 years because we bring together some of the best local and regional design talent,” said Daphne Cota, exhibition manager for The Bride Show.
“This year we are really celebrating the creativity which exists in this region and while most of the designers are remaining tight lipped about their new collections, some have shared sketches with us and the dresses are truly spectacular,” she added.
Fashion shows this year include the opening show by Lebanese celebrity fashion designer Tony Yaacoub, taking part for the first time and Trio Couture, an haute couture fashion house with designs from two UAE national designers and one Iraqi designer.
Ten amateur designers will also compete for the Abaya Design Awards, sponsored by Persil Abaya Shampoo. – TradeArabia News Service
