10 Australian Bridal Designers to Know When Searching For Your Dream Dress

by Staff

The Designer:

Sydney-based designer Karen Willis Holmes launched her eponymous line in 2000 and has gained much notoriety since then, for her timeless and impeccably crafted designs. They’ve appeared on public figures, at Sydney Fashion Week, and on real customers throughout the world.

She designs for a bride who loves the classics, be it those drawn to minimalist, strapless gowns, or those who prefer sharp suiting. “Our goal is to always create a one-of-a-kind, personal, and genuine experience for brides when finding their perfect wedding dress,” Holmes shares with Brides. Across all her designs, including bespoke offerings and extended sizing up to a US 20, Holmes “is about working with brides on an individual level, listening to their plans and style ideas, and elevating their dreams into reality.”

The Karen Willis Holmes Bride:

Holmes’s brides don’t fit into one specific box. “Our silhouettes are timeless, but each of our gowns has that little extra something,” she says. This comes by way of dramatic statement sleeves, beautiful lace or beaded detailing, touches of playful feathers, or the option to add a cascading, detachable, and organza train to your fitted gown. 

Within the brand, Holmes created distinct collections, each featuring designs for different bridal aesthetics. “Our head-turning Luxe collection is perfect for the bride who loves a bit of glamour. Our Wild Hearts and Curve ranges are for the bride who loves stunning simple fabrics, or modern lace in a statement gown that gives them all-day comfort,” shares the designer. “Our Elope range is designed for the non-traditional bride who wants to stand out on her day in a way not often seen. Our Bespoke range is for the bride who loves to fully customize her look, with the ability to mix and match bodices and skirts to create each and every bride’s ultimate fantasy!”
