Galia Lahav | House of Couture
This season, we tap into the romantic Latin culture of Portugal to draw inspiration for Alegria. Meaning happiness in Portuguese, this couture collection is inspired by the country’s beautiful landmarks and palaces – the colors of the ravishing azulejos everywhere you look, enticing romance and rich traditions.
Portrayed by a vision of Latin Royalty, the Alegria collection depicts a regal Portuguese wedding emphasized through movements in the flow of each dress, rich embroidery, and lavish long trains. To enhance the romantic nature and admiration of the feminine body, the collection introduces new complimenting necklines and is designed with beaded and shimmery fabrics made of lace, tulle and silk.
Reminiscent of the azulejos, the color palette is bold of silver, blush and dusty rose that completes the romantic native touch of this collection. Our perception of Alegria, or happiness, is the first sight of a beautiful new bride on her wedding day carrying a flawless smile. We give you our Alegria!
