Romantic Fairy Tale Wedding Dresses ♥
It’s here! The new wedding dress collection from the one and only Galia Lahav. And let me tell you, it’s the stuff that fairy tale wedding dress dreams are made of. With no less than fifteen mystical masterpieces, Les Reves Bohemians sweeps us away into an enchanted fairy tale world of gorgeous bridal glamour. This year, Galia Lahav has created a magical world of bridal couture unlike anything we’ve ever seen before. It’s ethereal, it’s magical, it’s a universe where fantasy romance and bohemian fairy tales collide.
Through the stories and fables of the past, Galia delves into our childhood dreams of eternal love and magic as she presents to you her new collection, “Les Reves Bohemians.” It’s a mystical collection, as daring and adventurous as the heroes of the tales it draws its inspiration from, with phenomenal corsetry, intricate lace details, and enchanted tulle skirts. It’s both romantic and classic combined, but most of all it’s something new for the eye.
Galia takes us to unexplored heights as she introduces us to new silhouettes, textures, lace, and an overall unique look. The collection consists of fifteen timeless pieces with a color pigments for bridal design. In “Les Reves,” you will discover hues of ice blue, dusty rose, champagne, and ivory. Galia retains the traditional emphasis on the waistline, which when combined with the new silhouette creates a captivating, romantic look. There is a layering of fabrics and fabric combinations that create an illusion of depth in the patterns and colors, making the gowns look more dreamy and aesthetic to the eye.
Her fairy tale wedding dresses hint at sensuality with body hugging contours but remain coy with their softer lines and overall silhouette, like the familiar fairy tale princess. The dresses embody details of light, soft draping, and the delicate flares inspired by wings. The necklines are very detailed and trimmed in hand embroidery, and all the exquisite jewelry pieces are hand beaded, with intricate three-dimensional details using brushed and antique silver. Galia designed a luxury hand-made accessory collection to accent the dresses which are an entirely original approach to bridal accessories. Each divine with lovely combinations of colors and semi-precious stones, from rich lavender to deep jade green. The pieces are plated in genuine gold.
While designing her bridal dress and accessory collection, Galia searched deep into the heart of the bride, to express the mood of falling in love. Those who have searched for and found love understand that it is intangible and can never be strictly defined or explained, but must be felt and experienced, and that’s the essence that Galia worked to portray in this collection. It is not about the fabric or the dress, this collection is something beyond the material, it is an expression of love through the art of design.
