Secrets New Designs

Inspired by the past, capturing the present and belonging to the future; Secrets latest offering of jewels draws upon the timeless appeal of classic style to create a range of modern, glamorous designs.

Secrets director Jane Meredith said the contemporary collection retains old-world femininity, taking inspiration from 1940’s starlets such as Ingrid Bergman and Lana Turner. “Seven decades later, their iconic jewellery styles are still relevant for today’s women; they’ve defied trends to become literally timeless,” Ms Meredith said.

In an era of consumerism where disposable, one-season buys have become the norm, Ms Meredith said Secrets aims to bring the focus back to attainable luxury that will last forever. “Beautiful, affordable jewellery should still offer longevity and quality – women no longer require a Hollywood starlet’s bank balance to afford breathtaking jewels that can be enjoyed by generations to come.”

The new range of designs are available now in all 21 Secrets stores across Australia and NZ or online.

Secrets locations: 
NSW: Westfield Sydney, Westfield Bondi Junction, Warringah Mall, Westfield Miranda, Westfield Kotara.
QLD: Broadway On The Mall, Westfield Chermside, Garden City, Pacific Fair, Cairns Central, Noosa.
WA: Carillon City, Westfield Whitford City and Garden City Booragoon.
SA: Rundle Mall.

Behind The Dress

Vera Wang is one of our favourite designers. Her gowns are romantic, whimsical and high fashion, while still remaining timeless and elegant. On Vera Wang's blog, Vera Unveiled, she often discusses the design concept through to the making of the gown. We love hearing the process that couturiers go through when creating a wedding dress. Read on for a snapshot into this process, as Vera Wang discusses the making of her Gracie gown.

"A sense of motion and a feeling of fluidity are two things that I always try to impart in my wedding dresses, and nowhere are these more present than in.

For Gracie, I wanted the feeling to be whimsical, langorous and organic, so it was important for it to have a very soft structure—even the cap sleeves are barely-there, created from just a whisper of beautifully transparent French tulle draped across the shoulders. It’s just enough to emphasize the sweetheart neckline of the bodice, which is also draped asymmetrically with the tulle.

The skirt, too, has a relaxed asymmetry to it, in the smocking and seaming of the tulle. The frothy volume in Gracie is so effortless and diaphanous: the deliberately and strategically placed seams make this the kind of volume that flatters, that’s never frumpy. It’s always about that langorousness. And I’ve taken it right down to the bottom of the hem: it’s bubbled, so the hem captures more air and gives that graceful swan-like, foamy effect.

Gracie is so soft and so ethereal, you might feel like all you want to do is just lay down in it, and I love the way it calls to you almost like a very, very soft pillow. It’s been a long day, after all!

Everything about Gracie is done with the softest touch. It appears as light as a feather, and it’s the perfect gown for a bride who wants something very natural, and yet very ethereal, as if it’s not quite of this world."

Kate Moss' Wedding

image from

We love a celebrity wedding and Kate Moss's wedding was no exception! The bride wore a Galliano vintage-inspired, slim-fitting, floor-length dress featuring a smattering of sequins and delicate sheer panelling. The shoes came in the form of bespoke Manolo Blahniks, her hair was set in loose waves and her make-up was fresh and natural. And the gorgeous groom chose a double-breasted Yves Saint Laurent suit. The newlyweds posed outside the church with their bridesmaids, who each wore pretty white dresses, ballerina pumps and a floral head garland.

Winter Wonderland

It may be chilly outside but for brides having a spring or summer wedding the preparations should be in full swing. If you are still looking for the perfect gown with lace as a feature why not try the Allegra and Dakota gowns by Karen Willis Holmes.
Allegra incorporates the best of both worlds - the delicate detail of the gorgeous corded lace as well as the elegant fishtail silhouette, with sweetheart bust and tulle skirt. 

For a more relaxed and traditional look the Dakota is a lovely choice. The all over lace design is modernised with the v-neck line and floaty silk georgette sleeves.

Both gowns are finished off with waist ties, giving your waist definition. Why not mixed it up with a coloured sash or embellished feature.
