Many brides who are shopping for their wedding dress will see the term ‘Trunk Show’ and question what it entails. A Trunk Show is an event that we host in store (usually over a weekend) which is entirely dedicated to one specific designer. Trunk Shows are a great opportunity for brides to see more gowns outside of our usual collection in store. This week we are taking your “Behind the Scenes” of our recent Galia Lahav Trunk Show so you can see what they’re all about…
The shop was full of gowns from Galia Lahav from every collection they carry. Galia Lahav have three collections, Couture, GALA and their newest collection – Pret a Porter!
We are honoured to be the exclusive UK stockists of Galia Lahav Couture. Within this collection, brides can adapt elements of each gown to put their own stamp on it! It’s a real treat to work with a collection that is as versatile as it is chic!
Whilst we already stock a vast collection of gowns from Galia Lahav – at a Trunk Show the number of gowns in store practically doubles! This gives brides the opportunity to see and try far more gowns from their favourite designer than they would during a normal appointment in store.
Every bride who visits our boutique will receive a one hour one-on-one consultation, allowing her to try on multiple styles… whilst also enjoying a glass of bubbly!
A bride has “Said yes to the dress” and places her order for her Galia Lahav gown! We measure the bride and fill out a contract for her to sign. Once the deposit has been paid, it’s a bit of a waiting game as the gowns take 6-7 months to arrive in store!
Creating a Galia Lahav Couture gowns requires almost thirty measurements of the bride in order to create her dream dress. Despite the copious amount of measurements – a bride will still need to allow time for her all important alterations which take place in the weeks leading up the wedding.
On average a bride will need 3-4 fittings with one of our talented seamstresses before her dress is completely ready for her big day. All of our fittings take place in store and your dress won’t leave here until you are ready to collect it!
