Karen Willis Holmes BESPOKE 2017 Collection - Drop 1

Posted on 18 May, 2017
Karen Willis Holmes BESPOKE 2017 Collection - Drop 1

Get excited ladies, a handful of new pieces from the 2017 BESPOKE collection are currently in the workroom getting finished & we have news that over the coming weeks, they will be in Karen Willis Holmes boutiques nationally. Shot by the amazing Kas Richards, this collection focuses on new exciting silhouettes- introducing square cut V-neck ball gowns as well as fitted gowns with slinky skirts that sit close to the body.  The strength of the heavy twill in gowns like 'Taryn / Camille' is softened by soft georgettes, organzas and layered laces. The effortlessly cool hair and makeup on Peyton Edwards was achieved with help from the talented Sophie Knox, who we always adore working with.

Please follow social media closely for exact delivery dates over the coming weeks.
