Hainan /China/, November 27. /TASS/. Israeli wedding and evening wear Galia Lahav House of Couture will host a show as part of the 25th Hainan International Wedding Festival "Tian Haijiao", which will be held from November 28 to 30 in Sanya (Hainan Province, South China), according to the Sanya Daily newspaper.
This year the festival will traditionally be held in the coastal city park of Tianya Haijiao (The edges of heaven, corners of the sea). The Galia Lahav wedding dress fashion show will be held Nov. 30.
The publication notes that the international festival will include 15 themed events. The main event, as in previous years, will be a group marriage ceremony: hundreds of couples who take the oath of love and fidelity and participate in a mass wedding photo session annually gather in the Tianya Haijiao park. The ceremony is conducted by a Sanya government representative.
In addition to the marriage ceremony, the festival hosts fashion shows, wedding product exhibitions, thematic forums, and entertainment events. For example, in 2008 the organizers held a contest for the most beautiful bride.
The Tianya Haijiao International Wedding Festival has been held in Sanya since 1996. The event is organized with the support of the city's Department of Tourism, Culture, Broadcasting and Sports.
Galia Lahav was founded in 1984 in Tel Aviv. In 2017, the fashion house became the first Israeli brand to be accepted into the Paris Fédération de la Haute Couture et de la Mode.
