Bridal Show with a Difference
THE bridal expo held at the Creative Arts Centre in San Fernando last
weekend was not just a show of fancy dresses and fashion. Staff from the Basia Survivor Network used the event as a platform to raise awareness of cancer.
It was a chance to let the public know that "there was still a reason to smile even though you have the disease," said Melissa Cayenne, coordinator for the event.
The event is organised by Aspenz Promotions, a company dedicated to the enhancement of the bridal industry.
This year's expo was themed "Mi Amor the ultra beauty and bridal expo 2012."
Cayenne said, " Every time we do an event, we like to support a cause. This year we chose the Cancer Society of Trinidad and Tobago. We want the public to know that they can support the prevention of cancer even if they don't have it. We want to make them more aware of the disease and to be supportive of those with cancer."
And even though the expo was small, the presentations were exquisite.
Participating in the event were Caribbean Jewellers, Aisha's Professional Mehendi Designs, Glitter and Beyond Beauty Services, Floral Elegance and All Occasion cakes and bridal dresses.
