Karen Willis Holmes
Dress Size (AU)
Oct 16, 2018
Anya is one of Karen Willis Holme’s iconic and timeless dresses. This beautiful gown is made with delicate spaghetti straps, sweetheart neckline and fully sequin beaded bodice and skirt. The dress comes with a delicate sequin belt.
I did my first dance in Anya dress and it was the most comfortable and romantic dress to dance in dimmed lights.
OVERLAY SKIRT: This dress comes with a detachable skirt. I wore the skirt for my ceremony and photos and took it off during the reception. This allows any bride-to-be to have two different dresses for their special day. The detachable skirt is what adds the extra ‘wow’ factor to the dress. The Anya dress matched with the overlay skirt gives both the extremely grand yet elegant feel.
ALTERATIONS: I altered the hem to suit my height (155cm and I wore 10cm heels on the day) and added bust cups that can be removed easily. The dress is fitted with a bustle so you can hook the train up in the evening for dancing.
SIZING: I am normally size 6 however I purchased a size 4. The Anya gown is a size 4 that would fit any AUS size 6 – 8 as the fabric is slightly stretchy so allows for movement in sizing.
PURCHASED FROM: The dress was purchased from KWH Alexandria in February 2018 and I picked up from Newtown KWH Head Office in May (brand new dress). This was worn once for my wedding in September 2018. It has been dry cleaned and now packed away in the KWH bag.
I purchased the dress from KWH for $2989.
Skirt was $1200 and the alterations for both was $650 – totalling $4,839
Dress is in Sydney but can also be arranged to be delivered to New Zealand and interstate without delivery charges if there is no rush. Veil can also be included.
If you have any questions or would like to see the dress in person please feel free to contact me.
