Here at GWS, we love GORGEOUS wedding dresses (I mean, who doesn’t?). We can’t get enough of gowns that are modern, gowns with sequins, gowns with daring cuts and slinky silhouettes. And it just so happens that Australian-based designer, Karen Willis Holmes, plays up all those qualities + more! Her latest collection, Luna (which falls under the LUXE label), captures the essence of contemporary brides: the gowns are confident, sexy, strong, and made for those that want to step into the spotlight. Heavy beading paired with a minimalistic aesthetic makes for quite the elegant collection with a sort of ‘70s feel.
Longing for a gown that is sophisticated and feminine, yet bold and sensual? Look no further! Janneke Storm captured all the elegant details of Luna, so you can experience LUXE wherever in the world you’re reading from! Let’s take a peek!
All the Sequins
The way the Annette Gown catches the light is sooooo ethereal, don’t you think? The front bodice and shoulder have a stunning banding detail which adds depth to this classic beaded gown.
Sequins + tulle?! Yes, please!
Sleeves for Days
You don’t have to show skin to achieve a sultry look. Case in point? The Lexie Gown + those sleeves!
Modern. Cool. Unique. Strong. These gowns are bold, just like you. ;)

Fancy a timeless silhouette with a bit of flair? You got it with the Georgina Gown!
In a word? STUNNING.
The Lotus Gown’s feature point (seen below) is its incredibly cut A-line skirt which is fuller than any other gown in the LUXE collection, providing such romantic movement when walking or twirling as the sequined fabric drops to the ground. Lotus glides off the hips softly, perfect for the bride wanting a more relaxed but as equally flattering skirt. Fine beads cover this wedding gown and the bodice is framed with a wide V-neckline. This dress is finished with a fine beaded belt.
