It was lovely to be invited to the Press/Vip event for this exclusive indian wedding designer show at the iconic Somerset House.
The Indian elite brands were all present with their designers and it was amazing to be a part of it.
Sabyasachi, Tarun Tahiliani, Gaurav Gupta, Rimple & Harpreet Narula, Astha Narang, Bageecha, Elan, Gaurang, Mishru, Samant Chauhan, Shantanu& Nikhil, Shehla Chatoor, Shyamal & Bhumika and Varun & Nidhika.
Alongside clothing, the finest selection of jewels were also being showcased from Amrapali, Araaya, Birdhichand Ghanshyamdas Jewellers, Jaipur Gems, Jewels by Queenie, Khanna Jewellers, Moksh, Rose Diamonds and Sunita Shekhawat.
Shaan Mu, Bollywood's leading makeup artist was also there to provide advice on makeup and finishing off the perfect look!
The amount of money that an Indian bride considers to spend for her big day is truly showcased here from the outfits, made to measure, to bespoke jewels and even makeup. This is one event every bride-to-be needs to attend to start her wishlist!
The actual event took place the very next day when London had its snowfall, and with a queue spanning all along the Somerset House forecourt and round the corner, it was left to the top designer himself, Sabyasachi to venture out in the snow to meet some of the ladies in the queue and take selfies with them. That was an amazing gesture from such a humble man.
A fantastic event organised by the amazing Aashni Doshi, the Creative Director of Aashni + Co which was established in 2012, after a gap in the market for exclusive designer outfits from the sub-continent.
