"I think the bold style. It's sexy, and I love to highlight a woman's form," Inbal told Elle magazine last year, while describing her designs. "I love it when the bride integrates with the dress, and they become one, like a second skin. Our bride is confident; sometimes quietly confident, and she is always breathtaking," she told Brides Magazine in 2015.
She has been designing wedding outfits since 2014.
What's so special about her gowns?
Inbal's outfits are individually made which is based on 30 different measurements. She believes fit and comfort is the key to the perfect gown.

A wedding is such a significant event in a woman's life, and it's how she feels wearing the dress that emphasizes her features, and can make her feel like the queen of the night!" she told Brides.
How much do they cost?
A Dror piece could cost you anything between £6,000 ($8000 approximate) and £9,000 ($12,000) at the Morgan-Davies Bridal boutique in London, Daily Mail reports.
If Meghan chooses her outfit, will this be Inbal's first celebrity outfit?
No. Inbal is a popular name among celebrities. One among them is Beyonce who wore the designer's creation at the Grammys in 2016.
