Chicago IL: Zohra Shahzad Presented Desi Dulhania Expo on July 8, at Meadows Club, 2950 W Golf Road, Rolling Meadows, IL. It was a colorful array of beautiful clothes, jewelry, henna, and people! The organizer, Ms. Zohra Shahzad has been arranging very respectable shows and bazaars all around Chicago, Canada, and Dubai for the last 40 years without fail, giving communities a chance to see the latest styles and fashions.

Hair and makeup for the models was done by Hiba Khan, owner of Eve Beauty Salon, located in Schaumburg. Eve Beauty Salon has been serving Chicago land since over 15 years! They are a full service salon. Eve has recently started airbrush makeup that makes the beautiful models look flawless. We had the pleasure of getting a couple words from Hiba Khan, herself. “Doing shows amongst the community is a great feeling! When all the work is done and you see the beautiful models walking the runway, you know for sure that all of your hard work has paid off to its full extent. It makes me happy that the models appreciate my work and are so patient with me! I love what I do, because giving someone the right look plays a big part in how confidently they carry themselves.”

The fashion show showcased amazing designs by Parizays and their gorgeous wedding wear, located in Chicago, Erma’s Exclusive Collection for their beautiful party wear, located in Bolingbrook, and a special thanks to Saris and Things, located in Streamwood, for their wedding wear. They are a designer clothing rental boutique where you can rent out or buy saris, lehengas, blouses, accessories, and men’s wear for a very
