And to bring additional glamour to these spectacular shows, the national airline of the Sultanate of Oman, Oman Air, will be flying Caroline Castigliano and Professor Choo in from London onboard its highly-acclaimed, luxury Airbus A330-300 aircraft. During the event, Ms Castigliano and Professor Choo will highlight the unique qualities of couture design which will provide the perfect wedding day for any bride.

The designers will be joined by hundreds of invited guests drawn from high society, diplomatic circles and the worlds of business and finance.

Caroline Castigliano says:

“These Wedding Shows are a wonderful opportunity for us to celebrate the beauty and glamour that every girl dreams of for her wedding day. It is a genuine pleasure to be whisked away in such style by Oman Air so that we can share our designs with the beautiful women of Muscat and Dubai.”

Professor Jimmy Choo OBE, a range of whose exquisite work will be exhibited at each show, adds:

“I am thrilled be taking part in these Wedding Shows and to be bringing my work to Muscat and Dubai. To be working alongside Caroline Castigliano, and such celebrated brands as Oman Air and Shangri-La Hotels and Resorts, is an added pleasure. I hope that, together, we can inspire brides-to-be throughout the Middle East and beyond and ensure that the most important day of their lives exceeds all their expectations.”

Peter Hill, Chief Executive Officer of Oman Air, concludes:

“Oman Air is delighted to be supporting these wonderful Wedding Shows and to be working with Shangri-La Hotels and Resorts to show brides-to-be and, of course, their parents and future husbands, how luxury brands and the very best in fashion design can come together to create an experience that is out of this world.

“Caroline Castigliano’s gowns and Jimmy Choo’s Couture shoes are the ultimate luxury for any stylish and sophisticated bride, equalled only by leaving on honeymoon within one of the most comfortable, spacious and opulently-appointed aircraft in the skies – Oman Air’s Airbus A330.”
