About This Vendor
Karen Willis Holmes is a renowned Australian designer, widely acclaimed in today’s fashion marketplace for offering trend-conscious women their perfect wedding gown. The KAREN WILLIS HOLMES brand has established a reputation for constantly exceeding customers’ expectations both with the product and the service provided.
In 2004 following the success of the couture label which she founded in 2000, Karen was inspired to create the BESPOKE Bridal Collection. This collection resonates with clients who require a wedding gown with handcrafted couture quality, fit and sophistication, but with the ease & price of a ready to wear wedding dress.
In 2012, Karen responded to increasing demand for off the rack gowns, designed the Ready to Wear Collection – KWH by KAREN WILLIS HOLMES. Focusing on exceptional fit and centred on embellished and embroidered details the designs compliment the Bespoke Collection and offer brides a glamorous wedding day look.
The KAREN WILLIS HOLMES couture atelier & workroom is based in Sydney, with boutiques in Australia, located in Brisbane, Melbourne, Sydney & Perth, as well as national and international stockists. The company employs 40 team members in their workrooms & stores, & manufactures the Couture & BESPOKE wedding dresses in Australia, providing a hands-on approach & commitment to detail, using only the highest quality imported fabrics, laces, & beading from around the world.
