The collaboration between top designers who specialize in haute couture and between Ready to Wear brands, has become an inseparable part of the international fashion arena, and it’s always thrilling to see such partnerships happen that make our favorite fashion more approachable and tangible. This trend has also grown rapidly in the bridal fashion world as more and more designers offer pret-a-porter collections with a wide range of designs which stay true to their regular line but with a lighter twist both in the material choice and in their prices.
Galia Lahav, the renowned dress and wedding gowns designer who specializes in haute couture designs, has recently launched her new and innovative and very exquisite Ready to Wear line. The debut of the collection, which is named Gala Ready to Wear, is very exciting news for the bridal fashion world as it gives an opportunity for brides who dream of a luxury gown for their special day to rent one only for a more comfortable price.
With over 60 stores around the world, including the LA flag store which was launched this week and a fancy history of dressing A listers on the red carpet, Galia’s Gala Luxury Ready to Wear collection offers brides who are interested in a Galia Lahav gown to rent their dream dress in a softer and more modern style as opposed to the extravagant gowns which cost between 20,000-25,000 NIS to rent that the designer is known for. Among the designs one can find dramatic trains, layers of chiffon and tulle and many delicate works of crystal assigning and unique sewing techniques.
The inspiration for the collection was drawn from the most romantic capital cities in the world, and therefore choosing to shoot of the stunning lookbook in the historical part of Budapest was only a natural choice. The city’s energies together with the packed streets and the history that is perceived in every corner all come alive in the beautiful European scented designs.
The gorgeous gowns can be found at Galia Lahav’s Store in Tel Aviv and Worldwide
Price Range: 10,000 – 16,000 NIS for Rent
