Source Description

This photograph, showing the “Corina” wedding gown, is taken from the official website of Israeli fashion designer Galia Lahav (https://www.galialahav.com/bridal/couture/le-secret-royal/corina/). The princess-like tiara, the corset with floral embellishments, and the voluminous tulle skirt are staged in a fairy tale setting. The image is representative for fashion company Galia Lahav’s claim to combine luxury, elegance, and romance in its bridal fashion. Perhaps this was one of the reasons why this photograph was chosen as illustration for an entry in the local wedding guide “Kuchenbuchs Hochzeitskatalog” [Kuchenbuch’s Wedding Catalog] entitled “True Haute Couture in Hamburg” (pp. 48-51), which reports on Galia Lahav’s bridal fashions while pointing out that the first European flagship store of the Israeli company was opened in 2016 at Mittelweg 21a in Hamburg.
