Eid Fashion Bazaar 2014

Happy Eid little blogbees

I celebrated Eid with my lovely family on 28th July. We all got dressed up in these beautiful Asian garments (Eid present from big sister 😉 ), ate mummy’s yummy food and took a bunch of Selfies 😉

Here is my #lookbook from Eid 🙂

Nadim Saleem presents Eid Bazaar 02/08/14.

As mentioned in the Nadim Saleem World of Fashion Article I help as an events assistant for the Eid Fashion Bazaar.

Stalls

At the start of the event I welcomed in guests. I introduced myself to the stall owners and asked if anyone needed help setting up. The stalls consisted of designers, retailers, jewellery, Henna, make up, food, deserts and sweetie bags and health&lifestyle.

During the event there was a raffle to help raise money for Palestine. The raffle had an astonishing amount of donated prizes!

It was lovely meeting all the stall owners and designers! Samira from Signature looks, Tehmeena a textiles graduate who has a passion for Asian Saree fashion – Boutique in the Attic. My favourite Asian jewellery company is Scotland Sharma from Prestige By Sharma. And the best part, the mouth watering food from R-Caterz.

I bought this beautiful hand chain from Al Jawharah. Who hand makes her hand harnesses/headpiece jewellery made with Swarovski crystal. The stall was also selling Free Gaza Lumbands :D.

Nadim fashion Choroegraoher and stylist

I got such butterflies in my tummy seeing Nadim Saleem fashion choreographer work live behind the scene. He has an amazing charismatic personality that really created a hype back stage. Not only does he choreograph the walks for the models he also styled the looks of how to wear the dresses or how to hold extra pieces of fabrics (such as scarf’s).

“With no disrespect to designers..My role is to try and sell these outfits to the public, whilst designers specialise in the detailing and design of garments. I showcase the looks so the audience feel they want to buy the outfits”. Nadim Saleem

Fashion Show

The fashion show was like a performance as every model was a live model staged before the curtains went up. The models were already on stage, décor provided by j’orde (Charity week). It was great to see the fashion show turn into a performance! The girls worked very professionally and followed through the choreographed show.

The Girls Backstage

All the girls backstage were beautiful! All very friendly and didn’t mind me asking question on their modelling experience 🙂 I met the lovely Alia Ali. The only Scottish Asian model to be in the Pakistani London fashion week! Who even left a sweet message on my facebook.Capture alia

Every outfit was modelled with such grace and glamour! The official photographs really enthused the detailing of the garments and captured the defined make-up looks by Saira make up artist. It was good to see a make-up artist also model for the show! Great stuff!

It was great meeting new fashion faces and also catching up with clients I have worked with previously. It was good to hear that Glasgow do mini events like this nearly every weekend!? With the Edinburgh Asian community there is only 3-4 events that happen a year. There is definitely a gap in the event market for Asian multicultural events in Edinburgh. Amazing to hear Glasgow give the public more opportunity to bring social gatherings together. Which may mean less on-line shopping for Asian-wear.

Overall great show and for a good cause! Nadim had said I was lucky as the event is one of his more relaxed events where he had the chance to talk me through how he brings the show together. I can’t wait till Nadim’s next event which will be the Scotland World of Fashion!
