Introducing Our FW/22 Collection: La Femme

La Femme: a collection that empowers women, embraces individuality, and encapsulates the art of inner beauty. 

When pondering ideas of what to name this collection, Dana Harel knew La Femme was the perfect name. La Femme, french for “The Woman”, depicts what a strong, independent, woman means. In times of challenge, women lean on one another to offer support and encouragement. La Femme aims to make women feel their best while wearing the gown of their dreams. 

Dana and the team worked together to create eight dreamy gowns that are effortlessly beautiful and fit the bride’s body like a glove. All of the gowns in the collection are inspired by world-renowned Italian actress, Sophia Loren. Loren’s confidence and beauty are at the essence of this collection. 

The gowns in the collection are made from top-of-the-line materials and are inspired by craftsmanship, artwork, and sculptures from an art gallery. Throughout the collection, there are influences from ancient Rome and the Victorian era.  Each gown has unique details and draping techniques that come together beautifully to form La Femme. 

“This collection is truly inspired by all the women around me. A tribute to those powerful women who made me who I am today, who influenced me throughout my career and personal life and also women who make Dana Harel what it is today.” – Dana Harel

This ivory tulle hand-embroidered gown is made from a custom-designed embroidered fabric fit for a princess.
