What better month to have a Wedding Show than June. On the 25th I had the pleasure of walking in the event of the season, hosted by EFA, which is to become an annual event. The show was organized by EFA Top Model Tempest Hennesy and featured designs by Sayuli Allen of Sayuli’s Boutique and Swaffette Firefly of SF Designs. Sayuli’s new line of bridal gowns were shown, many of them for the very first time. Morning suits and tuxedoes from SF Designs were paired with the bridal gowns and bride’s maid dresses supplied by both designers. To the delight of the large crowd, the runway show was choreographed in the style of a wedding. A groomsman or groom walked the runway and waited at the end for the paired bride’s maid or bride. The two then returned as a pair before the next couple entered. Tempest presided over the show from behind an altar at the top of the runway.

 

Sayuli is not extremely well known (yet!), but the talented designer and her gowns matched up well with the designs of Swaffette. As with any wedding, the brides were the center of attention as they demonstrated the gracefully flowing gowns, seven in all. Of course, all the bride’s maid gowns, morning suits and tuxedoes were not to be missed either. The show was further enhanced by Stella Furkel’s new animated poses from Fashion Model Works. All of the models had a great time doing the show and afterwards I heard from many of those attending that they enjoyed watching.

After the traditional portion of the show, the guests were invited inside to a follow on trunk show. Each bridal gown and some of the tuxedoes were shown again, in a more informal setting where people saw them close up and had the chance to question the designer and models about the clothes. This was also an opportunity to demonstrate optional skirts and variations to the appreciative on lookers. The event ended with wedding cake and dancing. A wedding album and party favour gift pack were sent out to all in attendance.  We are already looking forward to next year’s show.  We hope you are too!

What a great year so far!
