Split Skirt


Ready for an incredible leg moment in your gown? Ready to show off your utterly stunning wedding shoes? A split skirt wedding dress is the perfect way to add just a dash of sexy to your wedding day look.

Not only do splits look show-stoppingly gorgeous, they give you so much freedom and allow you to easily dance all night long without feeling constrained. Throughout our collection of gowns with split skirts, you’ll find looks that feel modern and edgy with a high split, or feminine and romantic with a low center split.

So no matter what your style is, you can rock that split to perfectly match the tone of your wedding and the vibe you’re going for.

Whether you’re an outdoor spring/summer bride looking for openness and a down to earth feel or an industrial setting fall/winter bride who’s after a daring twist, we’ve got you covered.

(Except for your legs.)

I Don't Live Near a KWH Boutique or Stockist, How can I Purchase a KWH Gown or Obtain Expert Advice?

If you don’t live near a KWH boutique, contact our customer service team directly and we will have a solution for you to secure your dream gown. Our team can also offer you styling advice via phone or email. Feel free to contact them on +61 2 9519 3901 or info@karenwillisholmes.com.

What if I Have a Short Timeline?

We do carry stock of some gowns in-house, or we can sometimes make an ELOPE or BESPOKE gown in much shorter timeframes if we have all the fabric and time in our production calendar to fit your order in. As well, our LUXE line is a ready-to-wear line which means we can work with a shorter time frame as long as your desired gown is in stock. While we can work with shorter time frames, we always recommend a longer timeline, as having a shorter one will limit what is available to you.

If you have a short time frame, please contact us on info@karenwillisholmes.com or + 61 2 9519 3901 to discuss your options.

Will I Need Alterations?

Alterations are expected and essential for the finishing touches to any gown and will make the gown truly yours. When purchasing a gown, we take your body measurements to help determine the closest standard size to your body based on our size chart. However, alterations are needed to fine-tune for fit and to your personal preference. Whether that means taking in a gown to make it smaller for your hips, bust, or waist (or maybe everywhere), adding cups, shortening straps, hemming the length, and adding in the bustle for your train, alterations are a standard part of the whole process.

How do I Style a Split Skirt Wedding Dress?

Our gowns with feature splits look stunning when paired with a veil or detachable trains. Adding a veil to your gown will help amp up your style to feel truly bridal for your ceremony. Styling your gown with a train gives you countless options to add volume for part of your day or just make your look uniquely your own.

What is a Split Skirt Wedding Dress?

Our gowns with feature splits come in all different silhouettes and fabrics. Each split is unique and distinct; from daringly high side splits to romantically cut illusion center splits under lace, each split skirt gown has a different feel and tone to match your unique wedding. 

Where can I try on KWH Split Skirt Dresses in Person?

Have you fallen in love with one of our handmade wedding dresses? We have boutiques across Australia in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Perth where you can work with our dedicated bridal stylists and try on your KWH favourites. You can also visit one of our many stockists across the globe if our boutiques are not in your area.

What is the Lead Time for a Split Skirt Dress?

Gowns from the ELOPE & BESPOKE collections are made in Australia and are made to order to a standard size- whatever size you measure closest to at the time of your appointment. We recommend a booking lead time of 4 – 6 months, however, because we make these gowns in our own workroom we can sometimes work with shorter time frames.

Gowns from the LUXE collection are sold from stock or available for pre-order. Due to the nature of this collection the gowns are sold on a first come first serve basis.

Gowns from the WILD HEARTS collection are made in Australia and our recommended lead time is 4 months from your wedding date, plus time for alterations.

What do I Wear Under a Split Skirt Dress?

On the hunt for the perfect shape wear for your split skirt gown? We recommend focusing on the height and positioning of your split to ensure your shape wear doesn’t peek out. Have a look at our stylist’s expert advice here.
