Designer to Watch- Lihi Hod Wedding Gowns

Some may know that I work as a bridal consultant on the weekends. I help brides find their dream wedding gowns.  This weekend, one my future brides showed me this new line based in Israel, Lihi Hod. Again, the Israeli designers are taking this bridal industry by storm. They are sure keeping other designers on their toes. I absolutely love it as it brings a fresh look into the market.

Lihi Hod was born and raised in Tel Aviv, and fashion design has always been an integral part of her life.

Upon graduation, Lihi was approached by legendary fashion designer John Galliano and worked with him in Paris at the fashion house, Dior. She specialized in developing the details of the haute couture department under the brand.

Lihi Hod bridal gowns are truly unique in their design, fabrics and silhouettes. Depth is created by combining layers of opaque and transparent fabrics such as silk chiffons and tulles with a variety of laces. Swarovski crystals, glass beads and gemstones are used in true couture techniques.The collection features low cut backs on many styles.

Each Lihi Hod gown is specially made to measure, creating a perfect fit and a truly couture process. All gowns are made by hand under the direction of the designer.

Lihi Hod gowns range from $5,600 – $10,000. The collection can be found at Gabriella New York Bridal Salon.
