Designer Galia Lahav‘s made-to-order bridal line, “Gala,” debuted a charming new collection during this October season of New York Bridal Fashion Week. The Gala by Galia Lahav Bridal Fall 2019 collection, Gala VII, is all about “magical” details that take wedding day styles to the next level. The designs themselves were inspired by the ancient philosopher Atticus, who is credited with the words, “A sky full of stars and he was staring at her.”
“This collection was less about the world we know. Instead, it veered towards the surreal, landing somewhere deep in an enchanting forest,” the brand shared on its website. “Caught between intriguing and beguiling, it’s fruitage resembles the best of the human world: think copycat cherry blossoms and forget-me-nots, only layered into a glittering texture with a canvas as starry as the night.”
Each photo in the brand’s latest lookbook reflects that distinct fairytale quality, with cherry blossom backgrounds the setting for many images. Beautiful floral detailing, embroidery, illusion necklines, and divine laces make these garments the most romantic options for a bride’s wedding day style.
“The tropes of the Gala VII collection consist of long, sweeping trains embellished with wild-looking petals, or otherwise crisp, swishing skirts of dramatic proportions,” the brand explained. “Slim, silver-hued vines inch along a more daring design that culminates with a floral-esque bow to draw the eye to a precisely fitted bodice. Here, a combination of modern and classic merge perfectly for a unique feel. Off-shoulder sleeve-lets add a playful touch to some of the dresses, in keeping with the whimsical feel of a fantasy forest.”
According to Galia Lahav, these designs are “made for the whimsy and wonder of a dewy, enchanted evening, the marriage between abundant fabric and sparing minimalism is ideal for the bride who longs to caper to her heart’s content.”
“Join on our journey into an enchanted forest where fairytale brides do exist, and your wildest dreams might just come true,” the brand encouraged followers on Instagram.
