A place of iconic representation of the 70’s, the setting of our ’22 Campaign combines nostalgia from the golden age of cinema crossed with a laid back LA elegance. Shot in a mid-century inspired home nestled in the stunning rolling hinterland of Byron Bay, it is reminiscent of the 60’s and 70’s decadence of the Hollywood Hills and Palm Springs.

The ’22 collection is completely hand crafted in our Sydney workroom and is made to order. It is available is AU sizes 4-20  and is available in KWH boutiques in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane & Perth as well as select stockists worldwide.

From Karen...

"The BESPOKE collections speaks to my heritage as couture designer. There is nothing I love more than structure, corsetry and statement silhouettes that work in harmony with exquisite fabrics to create a one of a kind wedding gown. You will see my love for voluminous sleeves, pockets and grand skirts continue in this contemporary collection that is set to be one of our best yet."


Catalina is the classic gown you’ve dreamed about – with a twist. In true KWH fashion, Catalina meets modern with regal and produces a timeless look, but one that’s uniquely your own.


The Catalina gown by Karen Willis Holmes, a strapless simple wedding dress with an A-Line skirt.

Jacqueline & Elizabeth

The Jacqueline Elizabeth is made for modern brides wanting a touch of regal elegance. The Jacqueline bodice is a straight-cut corset with a statement box pleat in the centre whilst the Elizabeth skirt features a full, pleated skirt, a modern side split to show off your leg when walking and side pockets.


Brooklyn & Jayde

The Brooklyn & Jayde delivers on edge and sex appeal. This luxurious crepe top features a plunging V-Neckline and a gorgeous low back. Simplicity meets sultry with unique seamlines to shape your silhouette and unbacked crosshatched fabric to complement the deep V. 



The Stephanie gown is draped in the most dreamy georgette fabric and has so many stunning details and design elements. From the off the shoulder sleeves that fall effortlessly from a structured, sweetheart bodice to the ethereal skirt that complements the gathers and pleats of the rest of the gown, the Stephanie is graceful elegance at its finest. Giving off a Romanesque or Grecian feel, the sheer georgette of the skirt waterfalls from a flattering point at the hips, giving this dress a figure-hugging shape that cascades into a free, flowy silhouette. 


Quinn & Elizabeth

Our love for classic designs with a contemporary flare just got ticked up a notch with the Quinn bodice and Elizabeth Skirt. Featuring a sweet and feminine front with gorgeous thick straps, flattering seam lines and a straight across neckline that our brides love.  We completely modernised the back of this traditional look with total openness.


Zaidee & Amira

The Zaidee Amira is one to behold. Delicate femininity is perfectly unified with touches of lovely detail on our Zaidee top. The dainty spaghetti straps frame you along with the subtle V-Neckline and stunningly match the tone of the ruching along the chest and sides of this bodice. To balance the intricacies of the bodice, the Amira skirt soothes the eye with her tiered, boho style.



A timeless style that’s universally flattering, the Raven gown is a fit and flare wedding dress with a soft V-Neckline and an off the shoulder bodice. Simplicity meets visual interest with this stunning gown; the material is luxurious and sleek but also features gorgeous seamlines that frame your figure and add unique feature


Johanna & Mila

Johanna bodice and Mila skirt give simplicity a new look altogether. Delicate organza draping throughout is the star of the show on this classic V-Neckline bodice with flattering, supportive straps. The incredible structured feel our brides love combines with the perfect neckline and backline to give this intricately handmade bodice a classic yet contemporary feel while the a-line skirt adds comfort and grace to the overall look.


Gwen & Fern

Gwen & Fern: she’s for the daring, the bold, the unique. Gwen is made in a luxurious crepe fabric and features a straight neckline and gorgeous thick straps. Alongside flattering seamlines, the show-stopping elements of this bodice are of course the plunging open front with crosshatched ribbon and the incredible open back. 


Diana & Elizabeth

If you’ve been lusting for a straight neckline for your wedding gown, we hear you; it’s an incredibly flattering and beautiful element for your wedding dress. Diana features that straight, strapless look we all love and gives you the option to choose a button or lace-up closure so you can make your look your own.

These stunning gowns are now available in KAREN WILLIS HOLMES boutiques in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne & Perth as well as select stockists in Australia and internationally.
