The new KAREN WILLIS HOLMES Statement Couture gown is absolutely stunning!!!!

The French Chantilly lace jacket features a v-neckline and peplum style hem.  
The Peplum is a trend from the 1940’s (a decade I love!) when women wore peplum-appended coats and dresses as a way to draw attention to a tiny waist and hourglass figure.

The shoulders of the jacket have also been applied with hand cut and hand stitched lace motifs to texturize the area and build up the neckline.
The lace jacket sits atop of a fitted bodice with topstitching detail on the bust and a heavy twill fishtail panel skirt with an exaggerated train for a dramatic silhouette effect.
The waist is highlighted with the Art Deco Belt, currently available online.

KAREN WILLIS HOLMES Couture is a custom service.  Starting with a 1.5 hour design consultation Karen works with you to design your perfect gown.  The gown is made to order and involves five fittings with Karen starting with a calico toile.

The cost involved for a couture gown depends of course on the design, with the average price between $6,000 and $14,000.

Couture appointments are by appointment so please contact us on (02) 9519 3901 to arrange an appointment.
