We can’t seem to get enough of Galia Lahav’s amazing designs, so naturally, when this landed in our inbox, we were excited beyond words. “Moonstruck” is Galia Lahav’s answer to the non-stop requests for an evening collection. Their first evening wear offering in three years, the collection is composed of a phenomenal array of timeless, black gowns, each featuring Galia Lahav’s signature exquisite detailing — plunging necklines, statement backs, detailed hand-produced beadwork and breathtaking trains.
“As the moon is the spotlight amongst the many stars in the night sky, so is the female’s body when reflected within layers of lace and silk. This collection is a black prism of black shades and shimmers of sheer textured fabric representing a midsummer night’s dream… Inspired by the hot Mediterranean sun and salty blue waves in the ocean, this collection showcases a summers romance for two.”
It goes without saying that the pieces are perfect for the red carpet and glamorous soirées (Grammy nominated singer Skylar Grey wore one of these gowns to Elton John’s Academy Award party), but brides looking for a stunning alternative to the white wedding dress (we know there are plenty of you out there!), this might be the bridal collection for you.
