After the great success of the Aashni + Co Wedding Show 2015, they will be hosting their second South Asian high fashion extravaganza, in association with Mustang Productions on Sunday 10th January 2016, taking place at Ballroom Suite, The Dorchester, 53 Park Lane, Mayfair, London W1K 1QA. We joined them last year and it was a truly South Asian fashion fairytale, read about last year’s Aashni + Co Wedding Show here.
Some of India’s most admired designers will come together in the Capital to present their latest bridal and couture collections all under one roof, from A-list fashion houses to new-gen talents. The full line-up of fashion brands at the Wedding Show are: Anamika Khanna, Anju Modi, Anita Dongre, Anushree Reddy, Manish Malhotra, Sabyasachi, Varun Bahl, Akanksha Gajria, Ridhima Bhasin, Chiquitita kidswear by Payal Bahl, Gaurav Gupta, Masaba, Nikasha, Rimple and Harpreet Narula, Samant Chauhan, Sonali Gupta and SVA. Renoun Pakistani designer Faraz Manan will be alongside his Indian contemporaries, as well as jewellery and accessories by Amrapali and Amishi London. Some designers will be present at the show including Sabyasachi and designer-duo Rimple and Harpreet Narula, giving opportunities for attendees to meet and have a personal shopping experience with some of their favourite designers.
January is renowned as the seasonal buying and browsing period for Summer brides and grooms. The event will showcase the latest occasion wear, couture and bridal collections from the crème de la crème of the South Asian design spectrum, with accessibility being key to the show. Mustang Productions provides a truly magical event design, which will be paired with floral styling this year by Zita Elze, an award-winning artist, designer and teacher who played a key role in designing the debut show in January 2015.
Aashni + Co Wedding Show 2016’s official charity partner is The British Asian Trust, founded in 2007 by HRH The Prince of Wales, who wanted to do something about the widespread poverty and hardship that he saw in South Asia. The British Asian Trust has convened funds and raised awareness through the backing of high profile voices such as Kailash Satyarthi, Simon Cowell and Rani Mukerji. To date, the Trust has made a real difference in the lives of over three million people in South Asia, which is amazing. See the highlights below from their Annual Dinner last year, where they raised over an incredible £1 million.
Aashni Anshul Doshi (Shah), Founder and Creative Director of Aashni + Co says, “The response to our debut Wedding Show was phenomenal, from participating designers, attending VIP’s, the public and media alike. Aashni + Co Wedding Show 2016 will surpass the high benchmark we have already established in bringing luxe, South Asian couture and bridalwear to the UK, curating discerning collections right here in the UK, meaning brides and grooms to be and wider fashionistas and followers of Indian high fashion can meet the designers themselves and shop entire bridal trousseaus or one-off pieces, bypassing the need to make special trips to India.”
