Brides of Culture is proud to announce that internationally renowned fashion designer Ade Bakare will be showcasing designs at the eighth BoC Exhibition at the luxurious Hilton Hotel, Canary Wharf.

Ade Bakare established Ade Bakare Couture in 1991, having graduated from Manchester University College, Salford, England. He gained his initial couture experience at the fashion houses of Victor Edelstein and Christian Stambolian.  In the late 90s, he started selling his own collections to high end boutiques such as Chic of Hampstead, Adele Davis of Bond Street, Lucienne Phillips of Knightsbridge and Ambers of Amersham.  Ade Bakare’s collection can be described as classic, with a touch of modernity, drawing influences from architecture and colour. His couture bridal wear collections are highly sought after around the world and his presence at the Brides of Culture exhibition is an exciting addition to what is set to be a phenomenal event.

Taking place on Saturday 23rd March 2013, this free-to-attend bridal exhibition is expected to reach a capacity of over 1000 brides and grooms to be.  The last exhibition held in September 2012 drew in nearly 800 attendees and over 40 major wedding suppliers. Testimonials and feedback from attendees and vendors alike continues to encourage Abi and Kemi to strive to make the Brides of Culture Multicultural Bridal Exhibition grow from strength to strength, with March 2013 set to be the biggest and most successful yet.

About Brides of Culture (BoC)
Founded in 2009, Brides of Culture (BoC) aspires to be the largest multicultural focused Bridal Exhibition in the UK. BoC is also an interactive e-channel providing information on services, products and vendors for members of the ethnic minority community on all aspects of planning a wedding.

According to the last census (2001), with a total of 1,148,738, the largest ethnic minorities in Britain are those categorised as Black or Black British, with the next largest being Indians (1,053,411). Overall, ethnic minority groups represent just under 6 per cent of the population of Great Britain, with over 235,000 weddings occurring each year.
BoC is available for any bride-to-be who lives and is planning to get married in the UK, providing them with any help we can to make their day a special one. There are currently many resources available to those planning a wedding in the UK, but very few for those planning one with a cultural twist. This is the area where BoC is invaluable in providing solutions to regular issues and problems that are common in ethnic minority weddings, but may not be so common in mainstream ones.
