Our first Muslim Bridal Expo was held on Sunday, September 20th at the DoubleTree by Hilton in Newark-Fremont, and we’re pleased to say it was a success. We have been receiving questions regarding the event and decided to put Muslim Bridal Expo FAQs together to address your questions.
How many people attended?
Over 600 People RSVP’d. Although some people registered many walked in as groups. Our estimate is around 300 people.
How many vendors and sponsors participated?
Thirty Two (32).
Which cultural themes were represented in the fashion show?
African, African-American, American, Middle-Eastern, and South-Asian.
Why do a show like this?
Islam and Muslims are in the news daily and much of the coverage is negative. We want to counter the negativity and reflect some of the beauty that Muslims from their diverse cultures bring to humanity.
What is the difference between Islamic Fashion and Muslim Fashion?
The founder Javed Mohammed defines it as follows, although it is open to interpretation.
“Islamic Fashion is a dress and art form that conforms to Islamic laws, customs and values.” Whereas, ‘Muslim Fashion is a dress and art form by or about Muslims.” The Muslim Bridal Expo is a multi-cultural event that reflects Muslim Fashion.
What does success mean in the Muslim Bridal Expo?
It is very personal. To the PMW team, it is having a good presence of vendors, audience, and team work that leaves people with a great vibe.
When and where will the next Muslim Bridal Expo take place?
We are in the process of doing a survey along with getting other feedback from the 2015 Muslim Bridal Expo. Based on this we will plan the next event and announce it.
