According to Charley Fisher (Executive Director, Texas Wedding Network), "We showcase a selection of countries each year to highlight their unique cultural wedding traditions. However, we also feature traditional weddings as well. As an international, forward thinking city, we now have a bridal show that represents all aspects of our city. The Intercontinental bridal show will help folks in planning a wedding, an anniversary or special occasion. Our vendors range from florists, caterers, dress makers and designers, event venues, photographers, videographers, and everything you need to plan your dream wedding. There will be giveaways, designer gift bags and international fashion shows at this event. KoumanKe'le African Dance & Drum Ensemble will perform at the Intercontinental Bridal Show. Visit the http://www.iahbridalshow.com to purchase tickets and for more information.”
Fisher also expressed that her initial search for local Houston designers with multi-cultural bridal attire for the fashion show yielded limited results. “I recalled TeKay Designs because I had seen their bridal attire at a wedding that I attended about 2 years ago. I was impressed with their lovely African-inspired bridal gown and groom's suit, bridesmaid dresses and Groomsmen clothing. When doing my research, TeKay Designs came up in my online search results for ethnic, or multi cultural and African designs. TeKay Designs has a broad range of gowns spanning West Africa, East Africa, South Africa, India, Asia, and Europe. They have designs for the entire bridal party which is quite unique."
"When we were approached by Texas Wedding Network to participate in the fashion show, we were excited about the opportunity as I don't think this has been done at the scale that we are planning in Houston. We will showcase bridal attire that are inspired by Queens from Ghana, Nigeria, Liberia, Kenya, South Africa, India, China, Rome, England and Italy. Moreover, our African and Asian-inspired bride and grooms attire, and European wedding dresses will be featured on the runway. Having a booth at the event will allow our team to provide more personal dialogue and interaction. We hope that brides and the public will leave the bridal show with inspirations for planning a theme-wedding or special event." notes Designer Kimma Wreh of TeKay Designs.
