Embroidery is an ancient art. For thousands of years, fabrics have been adorned with intricate stitching to beautify them and make them more luxurious. The vast number of hours spent hand-embroidering a couture wedding gown is representation enough of the incredible skill that’s required to create these magnificent designs. And the artisanal talent of Galia Lahav couturiers is apparent in our designs. The result of their hard work is a once-in-a-lifetime piece that’s more like a work of art than a dress.
Marie Antoinette herself would have approved of this regal gown, which has a touch of fairytale about it. One of our favourite dresses in the couture collection, the Lynn is handcrafted with delicately embroidered lace along the neckline, top and down the silk-tulle a-line skirt.
The Brenna is all about making an entrance! Walking into your wedding reception in this glittering design will be a one-time-only experience. Luxurious French lace and hand-embroidery cover a fitted corset dress in ivory, resulting in an empoweringly sensual look. Delicate sleeves and a key-hole back make this couture wedding gown perfect for a winter wedding.
The Miranda column dress is strikingly fashion-forward in its combination of astute tailoring, sheer corsetry and, of course, that stunning silver embroidery. The latter is distributed across the gown, from its high neck, along the thigh-high-split, right down to the ankle. Wear it with its matching detachable train for an even more powerful look.
Glamour worthy of the Queen of Pop herself, our Gaga gown is made with royalty in mind. 3D embroidery runs along the panels of this voluminous ice-pink and ivory skirt. We love that dash of pastel colour.
Metallic appliqué flowers have been embroidered onto the Sally for an unexpected dash of colour. Perfect for a powerful woman who loves to do things differently.
The embroidered-lace illusion neckline of the Michelle makes this wedding dress really stand out. An asymmetric patchwork of florals starts at the top of your right shoulder and trickles down the left thigh in a beautifully eye-catching way.
The Serena is a magnificent example of bridal couture. This fishtail wedding dress is made entirely from hand-embroidered lace, meaning every single detail has been carefully considered. Structured corsetry, sheer geometric panels and an off-the-shoulder neckline add sensual femininity to this intricate piece.
Mermaid wedding dresses are a beautiful choice for emphasising your feminine curves. The Lindsay goes the extra mile, introducing a regal square neckline, like that of Tudor royal courts, and a deep-v back for a touch of modernity. The 3D French guipure lace appliqués that embellish this dress just add to the drama.
The Alexa is all about those handkerchief layers of fabric and asymmetric shapes. We love this playful wedding dress, which is, you guessed it!, is covered in richly embroidered lace appliqués, a heavier couture feature that gracefully counterbalances the Alexa’s lightweight skirt.
