Bursting with colour and flora, The Must Be Kismet bridal show can only be described as alive. I have to say that I didn’t know what to expect but I knew from my experiences with South Asian culture that there would be warmth, glamour and music. What I didn’t expect were the giant extravagant cakes that greeted me walking into the show room; these were layers of gold, red, purple and white masterpieces that were shaped into palaces. The dining layouts that accompanied these pastry palaces were luxurious and shimmering, think huge candelabras, pretty printed dining sets and golden chairs. I spent a good portion of my time taking as many pictures as possible, attempting to capture everything.
The rest of the showroom is stage booths showing off various photography, desserts, bridal outfits, music and furniture displays. This is a great time to discuss numbers and details; everyone is very friendly and knowledgeable. It is a pretty place to just walk around and possibly get inspiration for your next party or your big day.
Now, on to my favourite part: The fashion show. My best friend happens to be the stylist for the show and got us front row seats, you can check out her work here. She is a very talented young woman, her passion and dedication to everything beautiful shines through the clothing and jewelry which she meticulously selected.
The violinist playing along to the groove from the DJ, brought in the first designers collection. Throughout the show we were graced with a flute player, two more collections and a final performance from the violinist who brought the show to an end with an instrumental version of Michael Jackson’s ‘Smooth Criminal’. What a great high energy show which went along perfectly with the rest of the experience that was, Must be Kismet.
