For the girl who’s independence separates her from the rest, who’s always marched to the beat of her own drum and who wants to own that special bridal feeling on her wedding day without feeling she’s lost her essence, this is the spirit throughout our ELOPE collection.
If a wedding is about celebrating the unique love between you and your fiancée, then what you wear on your day should celebrate your unique personality. At KAREN WILLIS HOLMES we’ve always believed that confidence is what radiates beauty on your wedding day and that your bridal look is a central part of that.
We wanted to give brides who are looking for something distinctively different to feel that confidence as well and the chance to redefine what a wedding dress means to them. This line of wedding dresses and separate pieces was meant to push boundaries, to break stereotypes and to rethink what a bridal look is.
There’s no such thing as what ‘should be’ worn on your wedding day, the only thing that matters to us is that your individuality shines though and that you feel like the most beautiful, truest version of yourself. The beauty of the ELOPE pieces is they all still say ‘bride’ without saying traditional, so you still have your once in a lifetime wedding moment without having to compromise your style.
Textured lace, silky crepe and satin finishes run through this line, but what gives the ELOPE collection its second-to-none-flair is all in the little touches. Feathered detailing, plunging keyholes, deep necklines and side cutaways give just the right amount of edge and sexiness to these daring pieces.
Each ELOPE piece would look incredible on a remote island abroad and just as stunning in an elaborate loft a bit closer to home.
That’s the beauty of this collection; it isn’t about the location, and it’s definitely not only for brides who are eloping— it’s about your personality and letting it shine whether that’s at an intimate wedding at City Hall, a far away elopement, or something more traditional, which works just as perfectly.
Our ELOPE line is versatility at its best, these pieces are breathtaking as a bridal look, fun and unexpected as a second look, and they make for incredible pieces for your honeymoon or rehearsal dinner. No matter if you’re wearing an ELOPE piece during your wedding weekend or down the aisle, they are like nothing you’ve ever seen before and are sure to turn heads.
All of our ELOPE pieces are proudly handmade in our Sydney, Australia workroom. We can’t wait to see you in one of our boutiques so our stylists can help you pick out your perfect wedding day look from this collection.
