BESPOKE Limited Edition

BESPOKE Limited Edition

The Karen Willis Holmes BESPOKE Limited Edition 2018 collection is dreamy, sophisticated and impossibly elegant. Showing the highest level craftsmanship, embroidery work & hand beading, these statement pieces are individually handcrafted and focus on the exceptional fit Karen’s designs are known for. The six-piece collection is exclusively available in the KWH Sydney & Melbourne boutiques.

The decadence of this sculptural collection is brought to life with volumes of tulle, heavy hand embroidery, dramatic shapes, soufflé georgettes and exquisite beading, graduating in a way almost imperceptible to the eye. 

“I wanted to create a collection that was completely top end and not worry about the price. Our other collections are very price conscious, this collection is the complete opposite, I just wanted to make a beautiful beautiful gown.”

Returning to her roots, Karen created this Limited Edition collection as a way to showcase her love for design, couture gowns and first-class workmanship.

Annie | Delicate | Soft | Fit + Flare | A sweetheart bodice gown with fine spaghetti straps over the shoulder. Bra base with embroidered & beaded hand-drawn lines crossing the gown. It features a paneled organza skirt, flowing from the hips to a full hemline with 1/2 circle tulle skirt & stretch base shape. 

Carrie | Sheath | Intricate | Sexy | Figure hugging | A heavily scattered beaded & embroidered gown with a fitted strapless bodice. The beaded skirt is fitted, splaying out with empire line trains. Finished with an embroidered waist detail and fitted skirt.

Francesca | Dramatic | Classic | Showstopper | Strapless bodice with an elegant straight neckline, emphasising the shoulders. It features a circle organza skirt with four layers of tulle, highlighted by horizontal rows of embroidered lace design from the top of the bodice to the hemline.

Jessamine | Modern | Bold | Sensual | A bustier bodice with a very fitted skirt and a godet in soufflé georgette. It features a heavily beaded bodice, flowing to the hips over the bra cups in 3D beading.

Jane | Classic | Ballgown | Romantic | A scattered beaded strapless bodice with beads dropping onto the circle organza skirt with 4 layers of tulle.

Lydia | Romantic | Whimsical | Statement | An off shoulder V-neck crinoline bodice with straps that sit on the edge of the shoulder, showing off the décolletage. The bodice is dotted with delicate floral buds which fall into a soft circle organza skirt with 6 layers of tulle.
