The latest campaign for Galia Lahav House of Couture showcases the best of Galia Lahav.
The photoshoot, which features the recent 'Queen of Hearts' collection, plays on the designer's inspiration for the gowns themselves. Drawing on the extravagant attire of medieval royalty, wedding dresses from this collection feature luxurious tulles, intricate beading, and glittering gold and ruby accents.
The stunning model, Nina Agdal, poses amidst baroque furniture and mahogany details, resplendent in tulle and beads. Sitting on a throne with a crown on her head, Agdal personifies the Galia Lahav bride: glamorous, elegant, and radiant.
"Nina represents the ideal powerful and self-empowered woman and is a true #GLQueen." - Galia Lahav
The tones of blush and nude prominent in the collection are emphasized by the colourful, patterned interiors of the shoot location. Delicate lace and twinkling beads cascade over parquet floors and checkered tiling, the tall ceilings and Downton-esque furnishings emphasizing the grandeur and regality of the collection. Intense beadwork and intricate patterning are mirrored by the period surrounds, highlighting the incredible handiwork that goes into each and every Galia Lahav wedding dress.
Stylist Rebecca Ramsey plays on the proportions of the space, styling slinky mermaid gowns in palatial drawing rooms, and flouncy ballgowns in the smaller, more intimate corners of the estate.
Photographer Greg Swale capitalizes on the best aspects of the Galia Lahav gowns, showcasing the figure-flattering cuts for which the designer is known. Backs are low-cut and open, with lace borders and hanging beadwork creating movement and interest. Trains are long, extravagant, and (often) detachable, offering versatility and variety throughout the collection.
Standout styles include stunning lace fit-and-flares 'Rhiannon' and 'Marleigh'; the regal 'Aelin', and the mermaid 'Allegra'.
Eternal Bridal will be hosting an expanded collection of gowns from Galia Lahav House of Couture via trunk show in late 2018. For more trunkshow information or to secure a booking please click here.
