Runway Report: Galia Lahav FW18 Couture

Bridal and couture design house, Galia Lahav, exhibited Fall 2018 Couture in Paris. The collection referenced Impressionist and Expressionist art. Tulle came in excess, like layers of a creamy, frosted princess cake. An accompanied palette of pastels and watercolor hues, alluded to a sweetest taffeta candy shop.

Head Designer, Sharon Server’s personal drawings manifested into floral prints, featured on pale chiffon, as embroideries and dimensional blooms. Dimensional florals attached as the sole statement of some pieces, and repetitively as a modern print to others, including a mini tube dress. Lahav’s recognizable, cascading silk tulle skirts were present in the collection in various manners. Silk pants, paired with outrageous skirts added a femininity to an otherwise masculine silhouette. Sheer embellished tops often paired back to the skirt-pant combo. Chiffon was styled draped and pleated gowns added maximalism to the collection. Off-the-shoulder bandeaus, that trickled into gowns, appeared fresh and feminine.

Israeli, Galia Lahav appeared to be continuing her quest to redefine fashion for women- in a shape and form exhibited by the Fall 2018 Couture collection.
