The story behind the brand starts at the end of 2019, a year after I graduated from the fashion department at Shenkar College of Engineering and Design, and after I worked for some great known designers in the Israeli fashion & bridal industry.
The idea of Gili Bridal Wear came to me while I was walking in the streets of Manhattan, daydreaming, hours after my boyfriend (who is now my fiancé) proposed me to marry him (it was a real surprise by the way!).
As I tried to imagine my big day, I couldn't see myself in a traditional wedding dress. It didn't feel right. I knew for sure that the traditional process of a custom wedding dress is not for me, and I knew I might not be the only person who feels this way. That's when this concept was born.
Gili Bridal Wear is the place to shop for your wedding dress with ease. We have ready-to-wear dresses (and other products as well) that can save you so much time and even money.
Our studio is located in Yehud-Monosson, Israel, and our dresses are hand-made locally. Our garments are made from very high-quality fabrics and we work with the most professional seamstresses.
I'm so excited to share my vision with you, and so grateful for the opportunity to dress you on your big day!
