West and East fashion designers collaborate at rooftop bridal shoot

We had a chance to take a look at behind the scenes of a bridal photoshoot at the Vertigo Sky Lounge. The shoot combined two different styles of traditional bridal gowns, western and eastern.

Vertigo Sky Lounge located in the heart of downtown on the roof of the Dana Hotel was a great location for a photoshoot. Floor to ceiling windows fill the lounge with light and provide the most amazing view of the city.

The photoshoot was organized by VIP Chicago Brides. Founded by Anita Arsova, the VIP Chicago Brides provides the ultimate “VIP” bridal experience by bringing the hair and makeup services directly to the bride’s location. Services are based on a personalized approach and are customized to each bride’s needs.

The concept of this bridal photoshoot was to bring together western and eastern traditions. Anita had invited two bridal boutiques to participate. Charisma was representing the East and Lauren Bridal – the West.

Charisma is an upscale South Asian fashions boutique located in Westmont. Run by Ritu Boorgu the boutique carries collections that are distinct in styles and silhouettes with traditional and modern embroidery in a variety of fabric combinations. Charisma carries saris for special occasions and events. The boutique also caters to brides that want to have a traditional South Asian wedding.

Lauren Bridal is a family run business that keeps old fashioned values and aims to ensure their clients have the most memorable day. Laurel Bridal carries many unique elegant European bridal gowns.
