For Spring 2018, the new collection from Galia Lahav entitled "Victorian Affinity" was a true departure for the brand known for their sexy, curve-hugging gowns. While the bombshell factor remained, this season, the label's head designer Sharon Sever explored new silhouettes, including full, princess skirts, and historical-inspired full sleeves and bustled trains, with new fabrications, including one shimmering material made with real hammered sterling silver!
Opting for a true pastoral feel, Deandra and Winston's wedding theme was "Dreaming of Tuscany." The Italian countryside was evident in all aspects of their special day, from the olive oil favors, to incorporating olive branches and figs into the centrepieces. Channelling the lush hills of central Italy, the wedding was the perfect mix of classic elegance and organic luxury.
