Fashion Monday: Galia Lahav

For every little girl, there is a different vision for her wedding day.  It typically starts with a princess-like ball gown and tiara.  But every little girl eventually grows up.  Sometimes, her fairytale wedding vision stays the same.  But when it doesn’t, there’s Galia Lahav.

 

Galia Lahav creates some of the most beautiful, yet sexy wedding gowns.  It’s not for the demure or faint of heart.  If you are fashion forward and looking for a conversation starter, keep reading. What I love is the designs takes us fluidly through time periods and locations. Each collection tells a story, allowing each dress in its respective collection to play a starring role.

 

The Ivory Tower collection is reminiscent of the medieval, fairy tale concept of royalty.  But these are not your Disney princess’ dresses.  On the contrary– these gowns look like something the ultra svelte villainess would don before she laid waste to a kingdom.

The Les Reves Bohemians collection continues the fairy tale vision, trading the sleek lines for more relaxed designs with flowing fabrics. The few straight silhouette gowns are structured down to the last bead, with inspiration from Greek column dresses and sheaths.

The Jazz Age collection might be a personal favorite.  Loving everything from this era, it is wonderful to see a collection of gowns that are indicative of the glamour and richness of the Great Gatsby time period.  I also love the detail and silhouettes on the gowns– Old Hollywood calling!

The La Dolce Vita collection might be one of the most beautiful of all. Transporting us to the gorgeous Amalfi Coast, these Italian inspired gowns bring romance and sleek allure of European fashion.  The lace and layered textures bring out amazing designs and expressions.

Fashion Monday: Rania Hatoum Collection

Glamorous Wedding Dresses Rania Hatoum

So in love with Rania Hatoum!

With something from everyone– a stunning  Great Gatsby wedding dress, a short tea-length wedding dress  (which would look great as a “reception dress”), and a reminiscent classic Old Hollywood wedding dress to name a few, I’m convinced that Rania will be a household name with upcoming collections.  Both the 2012 and 2013 Collections are so stunning– I was truly enamored by the detailed bodices and trims.

In addition to the beautiful gowns, there is also an online collection of handmade bridal sashes that can transform any wedding dress or bridesmaid’s dress in an instant!

Fashion Monday: St. Pucchi

Keeping with the new trends and inspirations that have come to the bridal fashion houses for the upcoming seasons is the new line from St. Pucchi.  I adore St. Pucchi, because with all of their gowns, no matter the season, they are inspired, other-worldly, and yet appear to be classic and modern at the same time.  This next season is no different:

The latest collection inspired by designer Rani Totman’s  roots in Thailand,  regenerates true romance. A focus on texture and lace gives this collection an angelic and romantic feel. The collection consists of elegant form fitting gowns that have become extremely popular with the St. Pucchi bride along with tiered skirts, fit and flare as well as a few traditional ball gowns, some with exaggerated trains. Along with the staple strapless choices in the collection, Rani has designed a versatile selection of cap, strap and long sleeve gowns.

The collection also offers short, flirty gowns to complement the line– perfect for the rehearsal dinner or impromptu dress change for late night celebrating during the reception.

Fashion Monday: Sneak Peek into RIVINI 2014

Rita Vinieris has to be one of my favorite designers for her creativity and passion she pours into every gown.  They are so realistic, but also add a touch of fantasy that makes any woman feel like a million dollars.  As Bridal Week ramps up, Rita has created the Return to Paradise–  a theme of this season’s collection inspired by one of our favorite places– the Riviera Maya.  Rita said:

“I was inspired by my recent Holiday to the Riviera Maya and a walk I had taken with my family on the beach.

We found so many wonderful seashells of the most incredible shades of coral, sand and mother of pearl.
These beautiful souvenirs have graced the corner of my deck, reminding me everyday of the sunlight on my face and the warmth I felt being surrounded by the ones I love.
It is that feeling I wish to share with brides wearing my collection.”

Here are the sketches of Rita’s inspiration. I cannot wait to see them in person!
