Trunk Show Alert

Emma Frankart Henterly

White of Dublin is hosting a GALA by Galia Lahav trunk show next weekend (Aug. 5-7). GALA is the first ready-to-wear line from the haute couture design house known for its extravagant, custom-made luxury gowns.

The GALA line features layers of light, "balletic" silks and crystal beading, as well as Galia Lahav's trademark handmade embroidery. These gowns definitely aren't for the demure bride; they will definitely make a bold statement on your wedding day.

White of Dublin's Facebook page says trunk show appointment slots are filling up fast, so call them today to reserve yours. The boutique can be reached at 614-791-2600 or at
