– of  NEW YORK - FALL RTW 2011

The whirlwind that is New York Fashion Week has just wrapped up for Fall RTW2011 and we want to share with you some of the looks we are loving and some Karen Willis Holmes gowns that will help you achieve these looks and silhouettes.

We are loving the look of the pleated bodice and cinched waist which is on trend at the moment.
 These stunning Marchesa gowns with slim skirts are a perfect example.

The Karen Willis Holmes version with drama suitable for a wedding catwalk is our ‘Paige’ with overskirt.  With a sequin georgette bodice and organza skirt make a dramatic impact and define your waist by layering this beautifully, artistically draped overskirt.

Dreaming for a fishtail silhouette like this gown hot off the runway at Monique Lhuillier? Replace the animal print with delicate Chantilly lace and tulle fishtail skirt and go for the 'Allegra' gown from the Karen Willis Holmes collection.  Add an ivory or coloured sash again to define the waist and elongate the body for an elegant look.

Now everyone wants a princess moment on their wedding day, and gowns with fuller skirts are great at achieving this look.  We love the fabrication detail of the skirt of Monique Lhuillier’s gown but why not try another one of our new gowns – the ‘Madelyn’ with draped silk georgette bodice and full tulle skirt.  Add an embellished belt to complete your look.

For brides after a more relaxed silhouette Grecian inspired gowns focusing on draping and fluid fabrics are ideal. This Monique Lhuillier gown cause our eye with the jewelled brooch added on the neckline for a unique twist on a necklace detail.

Mille Fleurs Lily brooch 

Our stores in Sydney and Melbourne have a fantastic range of jewellery and accessories to complete your look.  Add a large bejewelled brooch like this Mille Fleur Lily Brooch to achieve the same look.

Ralph Lauren Fall RTW 2011

Our ‘Caroline’ gown is a perfect choice for a bride (in Ivory!) or bridesmaids who want a sophisticated look.  ‘Caroline’ is available in selected colours and sizes at our Sydney and Melbourne stores. It does have a split at the front neckline but sits closed in this image, but of course not as revealing as gown from Ralph Lauren.

This Oscar de la Renta gown caught our eye with the layered tulle skirt.
Our ‘Felicity’ gown features a stunning embellished motif detail across the sweetheart bodice and a multi layered tulle skirt.
