If you stroll by the pages of BTM often, you know that Bridal Fashion is my weakness!!! Show me a wedding dress covered in intricate beading and exquisite fabrics, and I’m simply a happy blogger! So when I laid my eyes on the brand new 2017 collection from Galia Lahav, well, consider me seriously smitten. Because once you see this new collection of Galia Lahav wedding dresses, you’re going to want one (or all) of these gowns!
Describing these parade of bridal dresses merely as “beautiful” is a serious understatement. With plenty of elegance and an abundance of drama, Galia Lahav Wedding Dress Collection 2018 Victorian Affinity is filled with one breathtaking wedding dress after another. Exquisite feminine silhouettes, sublime lace detailing and goddess vibes — How can one not fall breathlessly in love with a collection this pretty?
““Victorian Affinity” is inspired by the outstanding Victorian era in England and its parallel phase in France, “Le Belle Epoque”. These periods were characterized by changes and innovations in various fields, such as the Industrial Revolution. In this context, we dedicate this collection to Jeanne Margaine Lacroix, a designer who challenged the Victorian style, in its era and made a change of how we perceive femininity.
We put great emphasis on games of volume in one garment, creating chimeric silhouettes and endless trains. The color palette is of soft porcelain ivory, dusted silver, washed pinks, smoky blush and cream that completes the touch of this collection. To add our touch of romance and admiration to the feminine body we used delicately textured laces, deep colored backgrounds and paid careful attention to details (such as detachable elements and a lot of crystals), alongside varied Victorian motifs of high collars.
A bridal gown should be treated and fitted with love and care, as carried on a bride on her wedding day, and so we bring you our perception of it. Our Victorian affinity.”
