Oh boy. This past weekend we attended a private event at Kinsley James Couture Bridal in Walnut Creek, CA. The event showcased Russian-born bridal designer Galia Lahav‘s latest collection “Tales of the Jazz Age” and we are still processing. The beauty and delicacy of each gown was absolutely breathtaking, and seeing the collection in person rendered us completely speechless. We literally went right to work snapping photos.
Galia’s known for her dramatic trains, bare backs and intricate beading. This collection was inspired by the late and great 1920’s, a decade Galia has pulled inspiration from before. She has a great eye for details, such as the directional beading and lace placement featured on these gowns that really flatters a woman’s body. The models were stunning in their gowns, and had a very talented glam squad, with makeup by Adele Nader and hair styled by Taylor Cercone.
Mingling and then having the models walk up onto the catwalk before you is such an incredible thing to experience. All eyes turned to the lovely ladies and their gowns and you can feel the energy of everyone taking in all the amazing hard work that went into producing Galia’s gowns as well as the event production. It was such a great event and we met so many talented people and made some awesome connections that we’re beyond thankful for! Thank you so much for having us, KJ girls. If you need local fashion bloggers for another event, we’ll gladly attend! 😉
