Bri­dal expo a suc­cess

Whitsunday Times - - COMMUNITY NEWS -

LO­CAL mod­els dressed in stun­ning bri­dal couture and gor­geous party frocks were the star at­trac­tion of the Coral Sea Re­sort’s Wed­ding Expo on Sun­day.

The mod­els hit the el­e­gant white run­way in de­signs by lo­cal couture de­signer Kim Har­ris from Kim Mar­cel Art of Couture and lo­cal store Lo­tus Bou­tique. The wed­ding expo was Ms Har­ris’s sec­ond fash­ion show in the Whit­sun­days.

“I think the show was re­ally good, I felt a lot more re­laxed and the mod­els did a great job walk­ing down the stun­ning run­way of Coral Sea Re­sort,” she said.

“Lo­tus Bou­tique started the show off beau­ti­fully with some great dresses that are a lit­tle bit dif­fer­ent and per­fect for spe­cial oc­ca­sions.”

Wed­ding and event sales co-or­di­na­tor Lau­ren Wil­son said more than 300 peo­ple walked through the doors for the highly an­tic­i­pated event.

“It has been fan­tas­tic see­ing it all come to­gether and I think the ex­hibitors have re­ally stepped it up in dec­o­rat­ing their stalls and bring­ing a great sense of in­di­vid­u­al­ity to their work.”

Bride-to-be De-ann Jef­fery trav­elled from Mackay for the event and was blown away by the spec­tac­u­lar lo­ca­tion and pro­fes­sion­al­ism of ex­hibitors. “I am get­ting mar­ried next year and will def­i­nitely be con­sid­er­ing a Whit­sun­day wed­ding,” she said. Kim Mar­cel Art of Couture is de­sign­ing the gown that Miss Great Bri­tain Joanna Hill will be wear­ing to the Miss Global 2013 pageant in Los An­gles this month.
