Even though it started raining when the first wedding collection from Poise was shown, it did not stop the highly attended Lansmore Fashion Show from taking place on Saturday.
The event was scheduled to take place at Lansmore hotel’s roof top and the decorations, lights, and music was splendid and top notch before the rain tried to spoil the excitement and fun. However, the organisers of the event had contingency plans as they decided to move the event into the hotel’s conference room where fashion enthusiasts waited patiently for the event to continue.
The event continued after about an hour of preparations. Even though Plan B décor was not as beautiful as the roof top decor, the crew tried their best to make the venue presentable. The runway was exceptional.
The event proceeded with the Poise showcase, which was interrupted by the rain.
Poise was showcasing its beautifully designed wedding gowns with some having touches of black laces, studs and some were decorated with silver lining and beads. The gentlemen paraded beautifully designed suits.
Poise also showcased attires for flower girls and the designs were breath taking and exquisite.
