Vera Wang's Sensational New Fall 2014 Collection Revealed

Vera Wang’s Fall 2014 Bridal Collection debuted last week and included 15 stunning gowns in varying shades of pink: rose, petal, coral and peony ... and we are love, love, loving these glorious colours!

In this stunning collection, white takes a back seat as Wang plays with pink in all its shades, combining blissfully pretty and masterfully draped layers with floral appliqués and delicate vermicelli beading. 

Silhouettes vary from fabulously form-fitting mermaids to generously voluminous ball gowns. Fabrics incude tulle, silk, organza and elegant Chantilly lace.

But Wang's main message is crystal clear: Pink is sensual, pink is seductive, pink is dreamy, pink is sophisticated, pink is strong, pink is cool. Think pink!

Rachel Gilbert's Synergy Resort 13 Collection

Rachel Gilbert's stunning Synergy Resort 13 collection explores the elements of fire and water, fusing them together to create a harmonious balance.

Drawing inspiration for colour and movement from the electric richness of fi­re and the serene calmness of water, Synergy showcases a romantic journey between the two elements: from vibrant campari reds to soft mist blues.

Featuring sophisticated hemlines and the sultry ­fitted silhouettes representative of Synergy’s celebration of the female form, many styles in this collection would make ideal and supremely elegant bridesmaids' gowns. 

True to the Rachel Gilbert trademark, Synergy displays opulent textures in both fabric and beading. Fine laces couple with delicate hand crafted embellishments to assist in narrating this classic story of the synergy of the elements. Synergy characterises the strength and confi­dence that is true to the Rachel Gilbert woman.

Stylish, Sleek Silhouettes Meet Classic French Elegance

Melbourne designer Anna Campbell welcomes an exciting new look to her boutique label with the release of a breathtakingly beautiful made to measure bridal range inspired by French Romance. The ‘Gossamer Collection’ is the epitome of timeless, classic elegance and is designed to create a beautiful silhouette for the bride seeking to embody both grace and glamour in a custom crafted gown.

The gowns feature more fitted shapes than ever before seen at Anna Campbell, gently tracing the bride’s figure, defining the waist and flattering the female form. Selected gowns also feature a button finish which runs from the small of the back, down to the back of the knee in an impeccable, refined line and offers an alternative to the equally gorgeous and characteristic bow back finish.


Modern flourishes are met with opulent fabrics, vintage touches and the finest lace in this collection, which features the intricate detailing and delicate handcrafted embellishments Anna Campbell’s creations are renowned for.

Anna Campbell’s exclusive fabrics are now also available in a new hue: Bone. This unique colour, which took almost a year to source, creates a gorgeous vintage feel, without losing the gown’s bridal elegance. 

Adorned with exquisite hand sewn embellishments, glittering shoulder detailing, and intricate lace, the new Gossamer Collection seamlessly marries romantic, vintage softness with modern form and fit.

Available exclusively at Anna Campbell’s Melbourne boutiques - Brunswick & Armadale.
