“My favorite part about designing for a bride is bringing her childhood fantasy of her wedding to life. Every girl I work with shares how she has dreamed about this day her entire life, and it’s my absolute pleasure to make that dream come true.”- Galia Lahav
If there is any wedding dress designer who’s work I drool over and dream of and essentially need in my life, it’s Galia Lahav.
Her attention to intricate details and who custom designs her gowns to fit every inch of the body, every gown is one of a kind and created with the bride’s individual preferences in mind. (We were not trying to rhyme but hey…).
Born into a Russian family of seamstresses, she began not in designing but making custom lace appliques. It eventually evolved as brides started to reach out with requests for dresses with her custom laces and 2 years later, here she is.
Now creating her exceptional designs in Israel, here are a few of my absolute favorite gowns from each of her collections. I suggest you sit down, this is going to get intense!
La Dolce Vita Collection (Veneto & Florentina gowns)
Les Reves Bohemians (Blossum & Belle gowns; Tiger Lily gown; Crystal gown)
Le Secret Royal (Lily rose gown; Guerlain gown; The New Suzanne gown; Gia gown)
My final and absolute favorite collection…Victorian Affinity
(Charlie gown; Lia gown; Lizzy gown; Rayne gown; Sterling Cape; & my love Thelma)
