The Bride Show Dubai To Showcase Abayas, Caftans, Wedding Dresses

During the second week of April, the 13th annual Bride Show Dubai will be held at the Dubai International Exhibition Centre. Accompanied for the first time by a new exhibition called Women's World Live, The Bride Show Dubai will draw more than 200 wedding industry experts and suppliers from all over the world. At the show, the latest haute couture dresses, abayas, and caftans from the upcoming bridal fashion show in Dubai will be made available for purchase for the first time.

Women's World Live, which has been described by show officials as "the ultimate girls’ day out," will feature health care and well-being providers, fun fitness classes, and fashion and beauty make-overs offered to attendees. Next door at The Bride Show Dubai, professional models will be showing off innovative designs for caftans and abayas, exquisite wedding dresses, and fabulous evening wear designed by some of the top names in Islamic fashion.

Backstage, L'Oreal hair professionals and MAC Cosmetics makeup artists will transform catwalk models with the latest bridal looks. According to show officials, L'Oreal stylists and Kerastase representatives will also be on the exhibition floor, running a new "hair blow-dry bar" for show attendees. Visitors will also have a chance to win a designer handbag. Perhaps even more exciting will be the somewhat gimmicky but nevertheless enticing contest in which visitors have a chance to design a custom bag. One lucky show attendee will have his or her design created by a well-known London-based designer.  

Access to Women's World Live is included with entry to The Bride Show Dubai. A first-time event, Women's World Live is expected to bring together traditional Arabic and Indian retailers with international beauty counters and world-famous designer brands. After a hiatus in recent years, The Bride Show Dubai will once again feature the Young Designers Awards, which showcases the work of student and amateur fashion designers, whose creations (all wedding dresses) will be modeled on the runway.
