Being one of few stores to carry the coveted Galia Lahav Haute Couture collection we know we have to really impress not only our brides but Galia with how we showcase the gowns. Before we went to New York for Bridal Fashion Week in October we had already begun the planning for our party with an art deco vibe, so when the collection was debuted we were thrilled that it is based of the Jazz Era! Not to mention Petite Pomme Design had already set our holiday window install with metallics to play up the gold details for the big event! Everything was falling together perfectly!
We were lucky enough to have Brian MacStay shoot the event. His work has a dark, sexy edge to it that fits well with Galia's collections. For store decor we love to go all out, so we partnered with A Touch of Grace , our sister wedding coordinating company, to finalize details. They created gorgeous gold art deco invitations that were mailed to some of our closest friends in the industry! Between Enchantment Florals berry arrangements, A Touch of Graces attention to detail and Petite Pomme's metallic fringe throughout the store, we were ready for a great night! Champagne from Nottingham Cellars and custom cocktails were poured along with delicious sweets from Kitty Wong Pastry Shop, who is basically a culinary artist!
Models were posed on our runway all night, the guests loved every minute of taking in the beauty! The two looks that stole the night were Katharina (the dress is named after Sharon; the lead designers muse & model) which has geometric placed beading that fully embodies the Jazz Era and Marilyn from the Moonstuck evening wear collection! The black gown was a complete show stopper!
We could not have asked for a better turn out, many of our brides who had appointments for the trunk show loved being able to see the gown they had purchased modeled in person! We cannont wait for our next event or to see what Galia comes up with next!
The next Galia Lahav Haute Couture trunk show is January 9-11! Please call us (925-330-9228) today to set up an appointment to try on the gowns from Tales of Jazz Age as well as past favorites!
