On the met afterparty Jennifer Lawrence (24) surprise with a stunning silk dress in silver. But even more surprising was the brand of the dress. It was not JLaws Dior House brand or another famous Couture label, but a young newcomer label from Germany: Galvan. Our site presents the brand.
Hollywood has a new ‘Uberhip’ label on the red carpet found: Galvan. The multicultural evening fashion brand was established while in London, but has German roots. Behind the label the four girlfriends Sola Harrison from Los Angeles, Katherine Holmgren and Carolyn Hodler from London – as well as Anna-Christin Haas from Düsseldorf. There is also the Studio of Galvan in the Rhineland metropolis.
The new in-label of the stars
Within a very short time celebrities have a taste for the evening dresses: Elizabeth Olsen (26), Gemma kind of Eton (29), Gwyneth Paltrow (42), Sienna Miller (33) were already all in the creations since the founding of the label in the summer of 2014 seen. Rihanna (27) was already twice Galvan: on this year’s Grammy Awards, the pop star in a sexy Overvall appeared and on her birthday, she was wearing a silver chainmail dress.
Why evening wear?
Galván founder Anna-Christin Haas to our site: “it was the niche that has given us the idea. Modern and elegant evening wear to design that meets the spirit of the times, and is at the same time affordable. Every time, when you went to an event, you had to spend thousands of dollars for a high design standards. We wanted to go to evening wear new. So it all began. Today I have my Couture Studio in a loft in Düsseldorf and our headquarters in London’s Notting Hill,.”
Thus, also the name for the fashion brand was born. Galvan has indeed nothing to do with the chemical process of galvanisation where surfaces are refined. The name is loosely based on the English verb “to galvanize”, meaning so much to wake up like someone, or to indicate a gap. In which case, the lack of great gowns.
Striking: The look of Galvan is clean, but thanks to embroidery or cut out details still feminine, sexy and exciting. Often worked with contrasts. With heavy and light qualities of materials and geometric shapes that have soft, flattering, feminine lines – thats Galvans signature look. Anna-Christin Haas about the design philosophy: “fashion is inspired by the supermodel era of the 90s years and his clean chic. “And because the clothes look so timeless, it can be always tightened.” Galvan was ideal for young and modern women who are not afraid to put on a gown with a Bikerjacke and to go, so Haas to the Vernissage.
Granted, a buying of Galvan is not cheap, is located between 750 and 950 euros but still far below pieces of known prêt à porter label with prices. For that you get “we have very many fittings which looked exactly as the style itself in the movement and affects how the seams and the construction of the body.” so Haas at Galvan of no goods off the shelf.
And the Oscar goes to… Galvan?
We were not surprised to discover Galvan on a star on the Oscars in 2016. Maybe even on Rooney Mara (30), Cate Blanchett (45) or Diane Kruger (38). Because these three “are totally different type, but they are all strong women and thus the absolute Galvan icons”, so Anna-Christin Haas.
