ELOPE 22 ‘Sélene’ Collection
Introducing the latest bridal collection by leading Australian Wedding Dress Designer, KAREN WILLIS HOLMES.
Titled ‘Sélene’ after the goddess of the moon, this eight-piece capsule collection builds upon the already established and adored ELOPE collection, recognised for its bold bridal suits, powerful jumpsuits, celestial silk slips and daring minis. This season the team at KWH have designed eight exquisite gowns, all delicate and draped in 100% silk satin, created for the modern woman looking to eclipse the standard bridal look.
Buttery silk satins that gravitate around the body like liquid gold are dominant throughout the collection, complemented by slips that have been hand-sewn in a heavy dublin crepe, giving form and structure. Every piece is masterfully crafted in Sydney, Australia, reflecting the effortless Australian lifestyle we live and breathe.
We can’t get enough of old fashioned, vintage glamour with a modern-day twist for our contemporary brides. Tammy delivered, that much we know. This halter neck wedding dress lets you show some skin with a tapered neckline, keyhole cutaway in the bodice, side illusion cutouts and a sexy split in the skirt. This glorious wedding dress is finished with a modern ivory belt to hug the waist, further highlighting the bride’s womanly figure.
Margo gives off all the graceful feminine vibes that redefines what it means to be a long sleeve wedding dress. This ¾ sleeve, bias cut, silk satin beauty features a plunging V-Neck and split skirt to show off the perfect balance of skin. Margo’s lustrous buttery silk fabric glides over the figure with a slim silhouette, a flattering tie and draping in the back to cinch the waist.
Perhaps the most unique element of this elegant gown? The split in the shoulder of the sleeves that culminates in a tight cuff adorned with satin buttons — you know we love an unexpected twist of individuality.
Tiffany is far from your average wedding dress. Following true to the simple-yet-statement appeal that so many of our modern brides love, this silky number features delicate straps and a soft cowl neckline reminiscent of the 20s. Smooth bias-cut silk satin pours over your silhouette with a fit and flare shape and finishes with an incredible train that trails behind you with luxurious fluid movement.
Whether you’re ditching the city hall for a beachside getaway or marrying your love on an urban rooftop, Tiffany could be the perfect minimalist wedding dress to tie the knot.
Athena is the effortless bias-cut silk gown with a touch of art deco elegance. A split in the skirt, a sultry V-Neckline and the most flattering seamlines join together with ruching at the shoulders, a sexy open back and a feminine bow at the empire waist to make Athena a statement unto herself; she’ll make you feel the same exact way.
From the high neckline with intricate draping to its radiant bias-cut silk satin fabric that moves like liquid as you walk down the aisle and dance all night, this dress’ simplicity lets your bridal beauty speak for itself. Enya is a perfect match for brides wanting sultry sophistication understated yet bold.
The feature split sleeves on Enya have been designed to be detachable, with clear press studs secured along the armhole. Wear this gown sleeveless or long – and take them off halfway through your wedding to transform your look.
Bold, modern, fearless. Isadora is all of these, but most of all, fierce. This wedding dress’s simplicity says it all and makes you, the bride, the focal point of your look. Showcasing your figure with a dublin crepe that drapes dramatically over your curves, a V-Neckline that shows off the perfect amount of skin, delicate feminine straps… need we say more? Well, we will— because Isadora’s low, sexy, open back is the star of the show.
Isadora is the perfect alternative to the Sage gown if you’re in love with the shape but searching for an alternative fabric option.
A wedding dress that lets you shine, Shelby gives you minimalism in all the right ways; a stunning V-Neckline and straps with just the right thickness, a fit and flare shape with crepe fabric that hugs your curves in all the right places, and then? We pair all that gorgeousness with the most stunning low back that elongates you alongside the gathered train.
Wanting to make this gown long sleeve? We have many options that we can sew in to complete your look.
Say hello to Tisha, the sexy, silk satin queen-of-gowns we didn’t even know we needed.

An open back, a train of dreams and all paired with a stunning fit that will make your figure look fabulous on your big day. Tisha is the nostalgic wedding dress of your dreams with her 90’s vibes.
