Many of these designers are personalities in their own right and a side-benefit of attending the show is the opportunity to meet the talented men and women who dress glamorous brides, Bollywood A-listers and the cream of the international set.
The show is the brainchild of Aashni Anshul Doshi, founder and creative director of the Notting Hill concept store Aashni + Co. Aashni established her boutique in order to give UK and European audiences access to visionary designers of South Asian origin. She believes the show is a natural extension of Aashni + Co’s original vision to bring the very best of South Asian design and artisanship to London buyers: “I could not be more excited for the wedding show this year. The level of talent and expertise that we have showcasing at the event is second to none…There is no region in the world that creates bridal wear quite as luxurious, opulent and extravagant as this”.
The Indian wedding industry is currently valued at over £12 billion and, with January historically being the peak time that summer brides and grooms in the UK shop for their wedding finery, this is a great time to visit to see the huge number of options available. But even for those not planning a wedding – or a traditional South Asian wedding – this is a breathtaking showcase for the skills of top-tier designers, hot new talent and handpicked next gen superstars.
For those in the know, the glamorous Notting Hill store Aashni + Co is already the place to pick up super-glam finery for wedding, honeymoon or red-carpet event, and this show guarantees a feast for the senses as well as plenty of inspiration for your own wedding or grand occasion.
