To call a Galia Lahav wedding dress extravagant does not even begin to do the design justice.
Custom, handmade and couture, each step of the gown from sketch to embellishment is done on-site at Galia Lahav’s headquarters in Tel Aviv. Designed by Galia herself along with assistant designer Sharon Sever, these gowns do not skimp on originality or quality.
For Galia Lahav, the drama is all in the back. Illusion and barely there backs, one of the biggest recent wedding dress trends, feature heavily. Combined with cutout panels and cascading trains of silk tulle, often cathedral length…or longer, these dress features all create a statement without overwhelming the bride.
Early in Galia’s career, she became known for working with lace appliques and embroidery, and the tradition continues.Layered lace creates a lavish, luxurious look. Beading and pearls have joined the embellishment party, however, and are welcome members, creating sparkling creations that are perfect for evening weddings and black-tie affairs.
The glamour is all in the details, and this is what sets Galia Lahav designs apart. Looking at the sensual form-fitted dresses, it is no surprise her designs show up often on red carpets and award shows.
Mermaid and trumpet shapes create a fashion-forward design. Given that Galia Lahav gowns are all about the fit, it’s no surprise this curve-hugging silhouette figures heavily in these sexy designs.
Past collections have represented the classic glamour of the 1920s with sleek shapes, Art Deco-inspired symmetry and heavy beading and embellishment. More recently, bohemian fantasy and fairy tale-style romance was represented with full skirts and sheer panels in blush pinks, baby blues and ivories.
If you crave a statement gown that is as personalized as you are, Galia Lahav may be the ideal wedding dress designer for you. Daring, well-designed and detailed, these gowns are perfect for confident brides willing to wear a little luxury and take a fashion-forward leap on her wedding day.
