1. Top-of-the-line materials
Dana Harel is known in the industry for using only the finest materials. Her gowns are all entirely hand-made (in her new renowned Tel Aviv flagship studio) and require countless hours of work. As a testament to her insistence on perfection, the fabrics used in Dana’s collections are sourced from Paris’ Premiere Vision, the world’s leading fashion trade-show, while the crystal beads come from the same supplier that internationally praised fashion designer Naeem Khan uses.
2. Innovative approach to bridal gown design
This Israeli designer is celebrated for her intricately-detailed and avant-garde wedding gowns that embody effortless couture. She loves to experiment with unique elements like ornate Swarovski beads, hand-made embroidery, flower-like appliqués and other luxurious textiles that you won’t find on a traditional wedding gown. Dana Harel’s gowns are ideal for brides going for the unconventional, yet timeless wedding dress.
3. Personalised, one-of-a-kind gowns
Dana has embarked on a new project where she integrates signs, symbols and illustrations that are meaningful to the bride and embroiders them on to the gown. This is an exclusive technique that no designer is employing and offers brides a personalised, tailored gown that’s unlike any other gown in the world.
4. Celebrity & A-lister approved
Although early in her fashion career, Dana has already dressed A-listers and celebrities including acclaimed film director Quentin Tarantino's fiancée Daniella Pick, super model Bar Refaeli and Whitney Tingle (co-founder of Sakara Life) and counting.
5. Stocked in world-class bridal boutiques
The rising star is quickly joining the ranks of leading bridal designers in the industry, having her gowns stocked in renowned bridal boutiques like Mark Ingram in New York, Loho Bride in LA and Designer Bridal Room in Hong Kong, to name just a few. It’s safe to say that Dana Harel has the bridal fashion scene turning heads.
