Now, it’s pretty common knowledge around here that we have a bit of a thing for Karen Willis Holmes gowns. Why? We love a bit of diversity and we are of the very strong opinion that there is a KWH gown out there for every bride. With four collections (Bespoke, LUXE, Wild Hearts and Curve) the offerings are varied and, naturally, drop-dead gorge.
It will come as no surprise that the legends at KWH are celebrating 20 years in the industry this year and by golly is it set to be a doozy! We have already blogged the sweet as heck Dreamers collection here, the latest instalment in KWH’s Wild Hearts range, but today we are celebrating the second of many joyous releases, Lumière.
Whilst the collection boasts clouds of polka dot tulle, honeycomb mesh and oodles of seed pearls, our fave element of Lumiere has to be the focus on the blessed sleeve. Here, sleeves reign supreme and we are well and truly the humblest of subjects.
The Audrey gown encapsulates everything this bespoke instalment is all about and is most definitely our sneaky fave. Light and romance collide in a very, very aesthetic way with the latte hued tulle perfect for the bride seeking a touch of colour. As for the spots, best not to get us started.
Being their Bespoke collection, options are key and allow brides to take part in customising an already divine dress. For example, the lush bodice of the Grace dress can be worn with a long skirt or…as a heckin mini! Oh, be still our beating hearts!
Continuing to push modern bridal onwards and upwards, KWH have been sure to include a few statement numbers for the bride after a bit of cool of which our fave is the structured corset wonder, the Scarlett gown. Balanced out by oodles of soft tulle, Scarlett combines the best of the structure of high fashion with the ease of free-flowing fabric. For brides after tried and tested classic silhouettes, Esther, Penelope and Aisha are ready and waiting.
We told you there’s a gown for every bride and we stand by it. Seven gowns, two trains and four sleeves add ons means a whole heap of fun. Ranging from $3490-$7990 gowns are custom made in size 4 through to 16. If you fancy seeing some real KWH brides, check out Sammy’s long-sleeved beauty here and Rachel’s gorge gown here.
