Have we got a treat for you on this lovely fashion Friday, friends! Today we’re sharing the latest collection from Australian powerhouse designer, and one of our absolute faves, Karen Willis Holmes, titled Parsley Bay BESPOKE, after the serene Sydney locale. Whether you’re hunting for your dream gown, or just wanting to feast your eyes on some delicious dresses, this post is a visual delight. The stunning collection, made up of 29 pieces, is a mixture of 15 gowns, bespoke bodices and skirt pieces that can be mixed and matched with KWH Bridal’s current range as well. And seriously, guys, we are in loooooove!
An undisputed queen of Australian bridal fashion, Karen’s been in the wedding-gown game since 2000, so it’s no wonder she and her amazing team know a thing or two about creating downright phenom handcrafted pieces for the modern bride, and the pieces in the Parsley Bay collection are every bit as iconic as the designs as other members in the BESPOKE collection family that we love. Styled in 15 looks for this seriously spesh campaign, all pieces, which come in sizes 4-20 and 4-16 for the Martha Pants are structural masterpieces, all delicately detailed and draped in mikado, silk and lace.
“A collection of gowns true to my couture heritage, the Parsley Bay BESPOKE Collection represents the cool, and effortless Australian lifestyle we all enjoy,” Karen shares. “With a heightened touch of luxury, I explored intricate embroidery, delicate laces, statement 3D elements and sculptural art to create these wedding dresses.”
We are low-key obsessed with each and every piece in the Parsley Bay range, but there are a few gowns that we truly feel deserve a special shoutout… like Bailey, with her stunning 3D floral embroidery that sparkles at all angles and that floaty and femme silhouette. We can’t go past the Ines Bodice and the Avery Skirt either, pared with the Lindy Train like above. D.R.E.A.M.Y! The on-trend sculptural bow, against the flattering and figure-hugging sequinned skirt is an epic combo in our books. We are also totally swooning over the Evie & Neve Mini – this daring structural number is the epitome of classic with just the right amount of modern flair. Ideal for all our bold babes.
You’ll find this gorgeous range in the Karen Willis Holmes boutiques in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane as well as at KWH online, with prices starting from $1000 for the separates. By the way, have you checked out KWH’s other dreamy collections? We def recommend taking a squiz – her ELOPE and LUXE ranges are tdf. Girl is on fire!
