What is Indy Bridal Fashion Week?
Indy Bridal Fashion Week was created from Shawna's vision of a fashion show to a platform to unite the Indiana bridal community. This event included vendors and retailers in the bridal industry to showcase their work on a collaborative platform. Our annual event includes showrooms of vendors in the bridal market such as retail stores, HMUA, alterations specialists, and feature live runway shows of local Indiana bridal designers.
