While looking to the Victorian age for design inspiration, Galia Lahav found it the English culture at the time, as well as the parallel phase in France, called “La Belle Epoque.” For the Spring 2018 collection, which premiered at Bridal Fashion Week in New York City, Galia Lahav channeled the sophistication of the time into her new styles. “These periods were characterized by changes and innovations in various fields, such as the Industrial Revolution,” says the design house. “The day-to-day atmosphere was recognized with optimism, so we added our touch of romance and admiration to the feminine body.” 

Dedicated to famed designer Jeanne Margaine-Lacroix, these new gowns embody the powerful essence of womanhood in their fabrics, embellishments, and shape. Make a bold statement with a grand Victorian cape – featured on a number of the dresses – or create a softer image with the washed pink undertones of some of the silhouettes. Embrace a regal feel with an extended bridal train that will make you feel like you're walking through a prominent castle, no matter where your venue might be. See all of the gowns from the new collection in the slideshow above.
