Haute couture on Staten Island
By Frank Santarpia
Perhaps it’s for turning heads as you sip champagne under the stars at that special black-tie affair, or for dancing the night away at the wedding of your precious child. Or perhaps, as it was for actress Melissa Hunter, it’s to dazzle the paparazzi as you take a turn down the Red Carpet at the Oscars.
Whatever the occasion, when you want to stun, you need to know one name: Galit Couture
Galit , designer in the finest European tradition, opened Galit Couture in Brooklyn, 15 years ago. Using only the finest fabrics and materials, her opulent evening and bridal gowns are created to not only meet, but to consistently exceed their clients’ expectations. Galit’s designs have appeared in Contemporary Bride magazine and she was recently the focus of an article in the New York Times.
How lucky to have a designer of international importance so close to home – and now, with the opening of their new Galit Couture location at 1470 Hylan Boulevard on Staten Island, owning a creation by Galit has become easier and more convenient than ever.
Picture yourself in a dramatic creation rendered in silks, satins and lace. Imagine the secret thrill when you realize that they are looking at you, as you walk through the room in a strikingly beautiful creation worn with comfort and ease. It’s as if you were born for this moment… and perhaps you were.
If you’re ready to experience AKA Galit Couture, if you’re ready to explore the possibilities, if you’re ready to see fantasies of high-fashion brought to life in glorious colors and textures, then you are invited to visit the store. Bring only your sense of wonder and your willingness to picture yourself in one of their unique creations.
