Toowoomba Vivintage accesories Toowoomba & Brisbanentage Brides Expo

It was lovely to meet brides in Toowoomba last weekend at the Toowoomba vintage brides wedding expo. This was a really good way for brides based in the darling downs region to take the stress out of their wedding by (hopefully) sourcing all of the suppliers for their wedding in one day. There was suppliers in several different areas including venues, make-up, cakes, invitation design, dressmakers, jewellery & accessories, photography, videography and plenty more. The day had an amazing vintage feel about it and the vendors certainly reflected this also.

Mabina Alaka brought her unique style of hand-made bridal jewellery and accessories and they were a hit with Toowoomba women. Mabina has an amazing selection of bridal wear available for brides on their special day. Particularly, the finely crafted bracelets and head pieces that Mabina makes by hand were popular, as these beautiful accessories are made using the finest quality materials. To see some of the range Mabina Alaka showed off at Toowoomba, click here.

 

Contemporary Art Society of Victoria Inc

For all of our Melbourne friends and handcrafted jewellery enthusiasts, Mabina Alaka has a range of high quality beautiful handcrafted jewellery on display at this special event held on Saturday the 12th of April, 12 noon at the Fitzroy library. This is situated at 128 Moor St, Fitzroy. The exhibition will then travel to various other libraries, including South Yarra Library in Toorak.
