We are so excited to share with you the new photoshoot for the KWH by Karen Willis Holmes Sequin Collection.  For those who have been hiding under a rock, these are our absolute faves from the collection and for those already familiar with the styles, we hope you adore these fresh new shots as much as we do! Some of our favourite stockists across the States are holding trunkshows from now until July showcasing the collection so for those brides lucky enough to live near a stockist, you truly are in for a treat! See below for more details about the trunkshows and how you can book an appointment to make sure you don't miss out.   

We teamed up with photographer Bek Smith at the beautiful XO Studios in Brunswick, Melbourne to shoot these little numbers in all their glory.  Brittany Cartel worked her wonder on hair while Ross Andrewartha, Director of Artistry for YSL delivered some stunning dewy and dreamy looks to the lovely Eileen Cassidy who turned on her magic and made our gowns shine.

Simplicity was key, shooting on a blank backdrop and against the beautiful industrial white washed windows.  Sequined sheaths with the finest of straps and the lowest of backs featured, plunging beaded necklines & intricately embroidered back detailing.  This collection stays true to its roots, with slim fitting elegant silhouettes, made to hug a woman's curves in the most flattering way. The essence of the KWH by Karen Willis Holmes collections always hold an air of art deco glamour, whilst still being modern yet understated.
