Samsung Electronics was one of the official sponsors at PFDC L’Oréal Paris Bridal Week 2015 this year. The event just wrapped up after a three-day run at Faletti’s Hotel in Lahore where Samsung had set up an entire Galaxy Lounge to promote their just launched phones — the new Samsung Galaxy Note 5 and the Galaxy S6 Edge+. Let’s see what was the lounge all about and how Samsung showcased some of their awesome gadgets for all the attendees.

For those who have been living under a rock, Pakistan Fashion Design Council (PFDC) and L’Oréal Paris, completed their fifth consecutive Bridal Week event where designers from all over Pakistan showcased their bridal collection. Samsung was the official digital partner of the event, and also the black carpet host — plenty of pics and videos on the official Samsung Pakistan Instagram account or check out the hashtag: #FashionIsNow

My tour of the Samsung Galaxy Lounge started with the selfie booth. There was a Galaxy Note 5 mounted on the tripod stand and connected with a TV, and all you had to do was show your palm to the phone and your selfie will be taken. This is one of the new gestures that come with the Galaxy Note 5, ideal for big group pictures.

Next, Samsung had their Gear VR on demo with a Galaxy S6 fitted inside. Once I put it on, it seemed I was somewhere in the middle of an ocean with a big whale and smaller fishes going around. Pretty cool, I’d say. Certainly a game-changer if we start getting more Android games and video content compatible with VR.

Samsung had several of their gadgets displayed inside the lounge. Samsung Galaxy Note 5, Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+, Level On Wireless headphones, Wireless Charging Pad and various Galaxy Note 5 covers including the Galaxy Note 5 Keyboard Cover.

Bits and pieces from the Galaxy Lounge were constantly posted on the Samsung Pakistan social media pages, and a lot of that can be found out using their official hashtag #FashionIsNow on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. They had a huge screen above the lounge showing up latest tweets and pictures from attendees, using Tagboard.

We hope to see a similar setup and interior coming soon to the new Samsung Experience Center at Fortress Square in Lahore.
