A Chic Affair also adds two brand-new concepts to this action-packed event for 2010 – A Gentlemen’s Lounge, and the debut of the eco-conscious collection – A Green Affair.
The climax of the event, a formal runway show highly conceptualized by Carine Krawic of Carine’s Bridal Atelier and A Chic Affair Executive Producer Rachael Glaws and designed by Jamie Greenwald of Gala Events will show a collection of gowns by the world’s premier designers in a high glamour, ‘urban’ chic tour de force exhibition, like nothing you have ever seen on a bridal runway.
A Chic Affair is far more than a bridal show, it is a social and relaxing afternoon to be pampered, delighted and inspired and remember how much excitement this special time has to offer.
