An exclusive event will be held at the Rosewood Crescent Hotel, Dallas on Sunday, April 25, 2010.

Silk Threads announces a Bridal Expo and an invitation-only Fashion Gala, set for April 25th, 2010 at the exclusive Rosewood Crescent Hotel in Dallas. Hosted amidst the beauty and opulence of the currently trendy South Asian culture, coupled with distinctive contemporary dresses and tunics, the Gala will benefit the American Cancer Society (ACS).

In addition to an elegant fashion show, light refreshments and entertainment will complement an Expo showcasing a very select list of high-end wedding vendors. Attendees are asked to support the ACS with a minimum $5 donation at the door. Silk Threads (, recognized for its unique designs, vibrant colors and intricate embroideries, is the design house of choice for more than 400 high-end boutiques and catalog houses in the US, as well as for thousands of satisfied bridal couture and designer wear customers in over 40 states.

"We are experiencing a huge demand for South Asian influences in clothing since the blockbuster success of Slumdog Millionaire. Silk Threads has been at the forefront of meeting this demand for more than eighteen years," says Ruby Bhandari, president of Silk Threads Designer Collection.

As culturally vibrant as the neighborhood in which it sits, Rosewood Crescent Hotel is ideally located in the heart of Uptown Dallas. Home of the exclusive Stanley Korshak store and situated within a few miles of an art lovers delight, The Crescent is neighbored by the Symphony Center, the Nasher Sculpture Center, and the Dallas Museum of Art.

"The American Cancer Society is honored to be a part of this exciting event and thankful for the support in our fight against cancer in Dallas," according to Maria Clark, regional vice president of the American Cancer Society. "Raj Bhandari, co-owner of Silk Threads, has served on our Greater Dallas Board for many years and is currently part of the inaugural class of our Corporate Hero Circle. As a community leader, he has been very influential in creating awareness, raising funds and cultivating collaborators who share in our vision to eliminate cancer."

Silk Threads has been hosting fashion extravaganzas like this for many years and looks forward to another successful event this April. "We are pleased to support the American Cancer Society. Our event and product caters to discerning fashionistas and we wanted to use the popularity of our event to also do some good and give back to the ACS," said Raj Bhandari, co-owner, Silk Threads.
