Today we are excited to be sharing a sneak peek of our highly anticipated dreamy new collection!
Adding to the solid foundation of our 2016 Design Your Gown collection, a strong focus again has been placed on versatility for brides. With an array of bodices and skirts mixed and matched seamlessly, and beautiful overlays and trains that can be styled with any number of slip options all to accentuate the female form. The epitome of romantic, this ethereal collection features beautiful laces, sparkling beaded gowns, flowing georgettes, delicate floral embroidery, and hints of nude tulle.
Put together by the incredibly talented Tanya from Maison Meadow, this shoot's large floral installation 'growing' from the floor and the walls created a botanical wonderland that perfectly reflected this romantic collection. Captured by Sophie Thompson this shoot is one of our favourites to date!
The Nerida gown is up first with its sequined halter neck, featuring exquisite beading detail at the neckline, a low back design and flattering bias cut skirt.
It’s styled here with Genevieve Skirt Overlay, which is a Silk georgette skirt overlay that can pair well with any number of our gowns. (in-stores now!)
The Rose is a stunning lace overlay gown, with an illusion low centre front and centre back necklines, cap sleeves and finished with a centre front split in skirt. This sheer lace overlay does require a base gown.
The Rosemary gown is also an overlay featuring an illusion centre front and centre back necklines with cap sleeves. The full hemline gown features mixed lace panelling. This sheer lace overlay will also require a base gown.
The last beauty of the collection is the Shima, an embroidered georgette gown overlay with halter neck with drawstring neckline. It’s a soft fitting gown which can be cinched in on the waist with a belt or worn free for a more bohemian style. It is styled here with a strapless slip and the Vanita Cape, which is made of matching embroidered silk and finished with a centre front neck-tie.
The KAREN WILLIS HOLMES 2017 Collection is a true reflection of Karen’s 15 years of couture experience and paramount ability to created designs that effortlessly drape over the female body exuding natural elegance and femininity. Each gown carefully considered and every delicate detail thoughtfully placed to best represent the Karen Willis Holmes bride.
