Wallingford designer to hold wedding, quinceañera expo in Meriden 

MERIDEN — Alonso Máximo Events and Design will present a Fashion Show Wedding and Quince Expo on Oct. 17 at Silver City Ballroom starting at 5 p.m.

According to Alonso Máximo, products from designers, bakeries, hair stylists, spas, florists, make-up artists, photographers and event decorators will be the highlighted.

Models of dresses and tuxedos are also available.

Máximo, a designer with a shop in Wallingford, said the event is also a way of showing support for the Latino community and businesses that offer related services.

Máximo has worked for three years with Miss Universe Honduras pageant and two years with the Miss Universe Nicaragua pageant. He has designed gowns that were used in pageants.

Máximo started his business in 2015, holding multiple events throughout the year and running a designShop.

It is the third time he will hold the event at Silver City Ballroom,16 Colony St. He will call the venue “beautiful” and said he also likes the location because of the city’s sizeable Hispanic population and central location for those coming from out of town.

Máximo mainly focuses on brides and quinceañeras, a celebration of a girl’s 15th birthday.  He explained that he noticed not many Latinos attending wedding expos in Connecticut when he first moved here. That’s why he started his own show and added quinceañera-related businesses.

Elizabeth’s Bakery, a Wallingford-based business, will take part in the event. Manager Arturo Xicohtencalt said this is the fourth time the bakery will display at events run by Máximo. Xicohtencalt indicated that they plan to provide samplers for tres leche cakes. His favorite part of the event is meeting new people, and expanding his client list.

Máximo, originally from Mexico, said he had a passion for fashion designSince a young age. He used to play with his mom’s dresses, made outfits for his cousins and was always watching beauty pageants.

According to Máximo, 2020 was challenging because of the lack of demand for his products during the pandemic.

“For a moment I thought it was the end for me,”He said.

Business started to grow this year, as countries prepared for Miss Universe, which took place in May.

Máximo’s shop is located at 79 N. Colony Road in Wallingford. He is available by appointment only. For more information, call 203-543-9675 or visit alonsomaximostore.com.
