Bridal Fashion Week Canada’s Gala Dinner, held last weekend at the Fairmont Waterfront Hotel, was an evening of fine dining, music, dance and South Asian cross-cultural collections ranging from contemporary evening gowns to resort wear.
Under the direction of Jai Singh and Parvesh Kumar, Bridal Fashion Week Canada is in its fourth year. The event attracts local and international designers, offering multicultural bridal clothing and jewelry as well as children’s wear, wedding décor and even honeymoon planning.
Upon entering the Gala foyer, attendees were greeted by exhibitors committed to creating dream weddings for their clientele – from clothing and jewelry to hair and photography services, every aspect of the perfect nuptials was covered.
Greeting visitors was a photo mirror by Magik Moments which took candid photos and allowed guests to customize photographs with personal messages. These fabulous photos made terrific mementos of the event.
Bridal Fashion Week master of ceremonies for the evening was Sonia Beeksma of Vancouver’s CTV Morning Live. Guest dined on baked baby beet salad and Chicken Supreme followed by a delicious milk chocolate earl grey tart.
In the Fairmont Waterfront Ballroom was a large catwalk surrounded by over 30 round tables with beautiful centerpieces of miniature mannequins dressed up in dazzling evening wear, complete with faux fur coats and accessories.
