Karen Willis Holmes



Karen Willis Holmes bridal couture has been met with great success and fanfare following the opening of her Sydney store just four years ago.

Her designs are suited to the sophisticated, fashion conscious bride seeking and individual high quality contemporary alternative to the traditional bride.


Karen keeps abreast of the trends in international high fashion and continually updates her collections by bringing selective elements to her designs.

“I like to design feminine sexy pieces, historical corsets also play a big part in my design sensibilities, I love their feminine form”.

Brides are spoilt for choice when it comes to their selection of fabrics and colours this designer favours in addition to the classical ivories and creams Karen offers stronger colours that fly in the face of tradition.

She loves to use a stunning shot red and black silk satin, for example – ideal for the bride wishing to make a dramatic statement on her special day. Karen has many gowns in her collection however “many brides have a particular style in mind, but as a couturier I can advise on cut, fabric selection and finish until that dream gown emerges,” she says.


The complete couture service is undoubtedly Karen’s forte, she takes great pride in her workmanship and the utmost attention to fit, finish and the use of exclusive fabrics.

To perfectly complement the gown, she also specialty makes bags, veils, headpieces and jewellery to create the total look.

To cater for all her clientele, Karen has opened her two new KHW ready-to-wear stores, one in Paddington Sydney, and the other in Armadale Melbourne, offering a new collection of modern sophisticated designer gowns at a ready-to-wear price range.
