Rosemount Australia Fashion Week - Day Two...

Rosemount Australia Fashion Week – Day Two…

Silver has been a feature colour on a few runways so far this fashion week, in gloriously simple silhouettes and textures, which is all you need with such a statement colour. 

Karen’s Pick – To really work silver to your best advantage take cue from Livinia Nixon and opt for a simple shape and neckline and let the fabric speak for itself! Livinia wore a silver sequinned backless Karen Willis Holmes gown to the Logies last year and looked absolutely ravishing!

Karen’s Tip – Silver is also an excellent alternative for brides wanting to steer away from the traditional ivory.

Karen Willis Holmes ‘Keisha’ gown

Another simple silhouette, in the form of a strapless column dress by Bec and Bridge. The soft print adds just enough detail to a simple design without overdoing it - perfect. This could also work really beautifully as a bridesmaid option.

Karen’s Pick – The ‘Keisha’ gown, with its straight column shape, looks gorgeous with the textured sequin silk georgette fabric, giving it a special point of different and a bit of sparkle.

Karen’s Tip – Normally with a soft column shape, you have to have a killer body to be able to pull it off. But ‘Keisha’ with its corset base bodice, creates a tiny waist, and is extremely flattering for most shapes. The heavy fabric also has the ability to conceal any problem spots you may have – an added bonus! 

Karen Willis Holmes ‘Jade’ gown.

Zimmerman’s softly draped dress is on trend with all the soft folding that have been showcased on the runways so far. This dress style is also a great bridesmaid design, creating a sweet and sexy look that the ladies would happily wear again.

Karen’s Pick – For those who are fans of the silky, draped look, opt for ‘Jade’ with a soft crossover at the bust, and a slim flowing skirt, a perfect choice for a spring or summer garden wedding.

Karen’s Tip – With folds and draping over the bust, this sort of design works to create the illusion of a fuller bustline, as the folds create extra volume.

Karen Willis Holmes ‘Olivia’ and ‘Georgie’ gowns

At Karen Willis Holmes we love the effect of allover lace, and this little shift by Little Joe is no exception, a dress that looks so pretty and fresh.  

Karen’s Pick – The ‘Olivia’ gown (left) is a very classic look, while those who want to add a bit of sparkle to the lace, look no further than the ‘Georgie’ gown with its beading, which catches the light beautifully, lifting the lace with a soft shimmer.

Karen Willis Holmes ‘Evaline’ gown

Knitwear label, Sabatini white, has created a sexy soft knit version of a classic V-neck, empire line gown – a simple yet sultry look.

Karen’s Pick‘Evaline’, one of our classic gowns, is gorgeous in its simplicity and leaves a bride’s options wide open to accessorise in a number of ways.

Karen’s Tip – An empire line gown is great for more petite girls, with the design’s ability elongating legs.

Karen Willis Holmes ‘Theresa’ gown

A gorgeous soft ruffled dress from Sabatini White. This dress just embodies what summer is all about, with its soft ruffles trickling down the skirt, fun, frilly and feminine.

Karen’s Pick – Ruffles are a gorgeous feature to add to a gown for something a little bit different. The ‘Theresa’, with a ruffle neckline and ruffle detail falling down the skirt, it is a fabulous option for brides having a more relaxed style wedding.

Karen Willis Holmes ‘Satine’ gown

No surprises that the Alex Perry show was a knock out, with impressive execution and stunning designs on the runway. The floaty feathers on this gown were a fun alternative feature on fabric and create quite the angelic look overall.

Karen’s Pick‘Satine’ takes feathers to the next level, with a stunning shoulder feature made entirely from soft feathers, which still allows movement for a softer finish – with a diamante detailing, this gown is an absolute show stopper.

Karen Willis Holmes ‘Sophia’ gown

This cute little number by Alex Perry was just adorable! We love a bit of appliqué on corset bodices – something that is featured a lot in Karen Willis Holmes designs. The lace softens the panel lines of a corset bodice, giving a slight sexy ‘lingerie’ feel in a sophisticated fashion.

Karen’s Pick‘Sophia’ features soft Chantilly lace with corded Chantilly lace layered over glimmer tulle on a corset bodice base – channelling this look with a gorgeous bridal feel.
