If you’ve been reading GWS for a while, you probably already aware of our affinity for Australian designer, Anna Campbell. Known for gowns that sparkle with romance and stunning embellishments, her latest collection named “Wanderlust” is seriously DREAMY. Crafted with the modern bohemian bride in mind, this 13-piece collection features exclusive embroidered fabrics, custom-designed lace + silks, and seriously sultry silhouettes.
Prepare to be swept away as you gaze upon the jaw-dropping open backs and shimmering details. Floral appliqué and raw cut ribbon take the stage on several numbers, as well as sparkling glass beads. Without further ado, let’s peruse the gowns captured by Lost in Love Photography. (Oh, and we couldn’t imagine a better location for this look book to be photographed, than that of the free-spirited Byron Bay on the New South Wales coast!)
Holy smokes, hello Amelie! This embroidered tulle masterpiece is embellished with 3D laser cut flowers + petals, and topped with glass beading and sequins.
It’s available in Ivory, Beige, Sand or Tan — seen here is the Beige lining.
Did you know that all of Anna Campbell’s gowns are individually hand cut and sewn in Melbourne, Australia? This allows for each gown to be customized to fit a bride’s figure + style — we’re talking adding on luxury skirts for more flair, draped sleeves, or even more sparkle!
Here, the Amelie is seen with tulle draped sleeves.
This vintage-inspired Anna Campbell style is the Aria, and its hand-beading is seriously eye-catching. Since it’s available with multiple skirt options, it can be transformed into a sleek + sophisticated gown, or something more free-spirited that practically floats.
See how different it looks with the change of skirts!
Isn’t Eva striking? The modern silk crepe silhouette is sensual, yet refined. And don’t get us started on that back embellishment with all the sparkle!
Anna shares: This collection was all about staying true to the incredible embellishments and unique lace adornments that have become iconic to Anna Campbell, but reinvigorating these details for a modern bride.
Kira is seen on the left and it’s ALL about that ivory guipure lace.
The Blake gown is for those that want a modern bridal silhouette, with the classic Anna Campbell sparkle. One of the things we adore — the Silk Crepe de Chine fabric has a slight stretch, ensuring a flattering figure-hugging silhouette.
Isn’t the Jamie a DREAM?! The corded lace is embroidered with sequins and we can’t take our eyes off of it. The Jamie can also be transformed with its other skirt options, including Silk Crepe de Chine, Silk Tulle for a flowing look, floating Summer Chiffon, fitted Lace Trumpet, or even full Empress Lace.
Doesn’t it look like a completely different gown when you switch the skirt and lining? So many options!
Paige embraces vintage-inspired design with its draped Beaded Back Loops.
Would you take a look at it with the full shimmering skirt?! So beautiful! Paige is also available with the modern Silk Crepe de Chine, flowing Silk Tulle, fitted Lace Fit + Flare, fully Embellished or full circle Summer Skirt. How are you going to choose?!
My, my, my — what a STUNNER. Wanda is the most luxurious + exquisite gown, replete with custom embellishments (hand-sewn sequins + glass beads, of course!).
The Wanda is glamorous drama, in the best way possible. Oh, and did we mention it’s available with or without sleeves, too!
A few things we love: flattering feminine lace, floral embellishments, and sparkling beaded shoulder loops… in other words, the Saasha dress.
The Wanderlust collection is priced from $1920 USD (AUD$2599), and is now available in an array of international stockists, or Anna Campbell’s e-boutique.
For the modern minimalist, the Rebekah may be for you! This gown can be paired with a darling belt, or worn as is: simple + chic.
Last, but certainly not least, let us introduce the breathtaking Winter Dress. With a sweeping, high neckline and shimmering embroidered lace, we can’t help but imagine dancing all night in this beauty.
Want to try on one of these glorious gowns for yourself? The Wanderlust collection trunk show will be making its way all over Australia, New Zealand, the US, Canada, the UK, and Europe, starting in late July. For dates and details, click here.
