Last Saturday, I attended the Onyx Bridal Affair Fashion Showcase at the Sheldon Concert Hall, and I was blown away by the experience. Fashion shows are always exciting, but this one was special. The Onyx Bridal Showcase somehow captured everything we love about weddings and packaged it neatly in an upscale runway event.
The mood. Kenny DeShields and his soulful band were integral to the Onyx Bridal experience. With a repertoire of original songs and a few covers, the band provided live music while models walked the runway.
The style. Attendees got a glimpse of what it means to be a fashion-forward bride today. The gowns provided by Mia Grace Bridal showcased some of the top trends in bridal fashion. We saw lots of tulle, beading, drop waists, cutout details, illusion backs, and even non-traditional colors.
The details. Everything about the Onyx Bridal Affair seemed intentional. The models’ faces, done by Nettie Kelley Studio, flaunted the latest beauty trends. The bridal bouquets, provided by Personal Touches by Jeanetta, were so artsy and creative. And, that striking floral wall? It was created by PK Paper Art.
Here’s some of what you missed.
The grand finale was a mini wedding featuring two-time Olympic Medalist, Dawn Harper-Nelson, and her husband, Alonzo Nelson, as the bride and groom.
I hear that a fall event is already in the works for Onyx Bridal. Stay in the know by following:
