Asian Wedding Show To Feature Disabled Model On The Catwalk For The First Time

Share This Post

The National Asian Wedding Show is Europe’s largest Asian wedding exhibition that takes place every year at different locations, held locally and nationally. The show returns for it’s 18th year on Sunday the 26th of November 2023, at the Novotel London, Hammersmith. This is an event not to be missed!

The show will have a large number of wedding exhibitors and suppliers showcasing their products and services with inspirational ideas, to help you make your special day memorable. The event will host a stunning catwalk show that will feature the latest in Asian fashion trends.

Our founder Zubee is excited to share that she will be taking to the catwalk and modelling for the first time. Zubee says,  “This is totally out of my comfort zone, being the centre of attention but I just couldn’t miss an  opportunity as big as this to represent disability in the Asian community.”

This is an amazing opportunity to raise awareness of disability in the Asian community and to change people’s perceptions of how disability is perceived in this community because there is still a stigma that disabled people can’t get married and we hope this show will lead to changing that mindset and get conversations going.

Access My Events aims to make events accessible and inclusive as possible for deaf and disabled people, and for us being part of the fashion show is a huge step forward in helping to make a difference, not just in the Asian community but in the fashion industry too. Zubee attended the National Asian wedding show in previous years as a visitor and now she can’t believe that she’s going to model on a big stage in a wedding outfit.😀

For Zubee the fit and length of a garment can be tricky when looking for something to wear, whether that be Western or Asian clothes and she knows sourcing a suitable outfit is going to be a challenge for Manny’s team as it’s the first time that they will be using a disabled person to model. With bridal wear especially, garments tend to be very long and a lot of designers don’t cater for disabled people but Zubee is excited to see what the team comes up with for her specific needs and requirements. Zubee says, “I hope the show will get designers to think more about disabled people when designing their garments.”

Zubee says, “I would like to say a special thank you to Manny and his team for this huge platform, it means so much to me and I’m really looking forward to taking part. I hope that my participation will encourage other event companies and those in the fashion industry to consider making their events accessible and include deaf and disabled people in their shows.
