Karen Walker designing wedding dresses; it’s been a long time coming.
Forget what you knew about beautiful bridalwear, because one of New Zealand’s most loved designers Karen Walker has released a bridal range that we’re all over. Drawing inspiration from her ready-to-wear design archive, Karen has created 14 pieces for Karen Walker Atelier, and with ankle-grazing gowns and sweet beaded shifts sitting alongside non-traditional suiting and shorter, dancefloor-ready dresses, there is something for every type of bride.
Each dress or suit is made specifically for each client through a private appointment, where the bride-to-be will discuss their special attire with Karen Walker’s team and the designer herself will also jump in at some point of their design journey. The end result will be something tailored head-to-toe to ensure the piece is perfect for your special day.
Prices range between $1,450 and $4,250 for dresses and the three-piece suits are $3,250 and $3,950.
Karen Walker’s popular jewellery collection has also been extended and now features locally-made bridal jewellery, which includes 13 different styles of engagement rings and wedding bands. Each ring can be customised countless ways – they can be cast in white, yellow or rose gold and with a variety of precious and semi-precious stones and various settings to choose from, it means you will end up with something truly personal and unique.
To begin the Atelier process, a booking for both dress/suit and jewellery services can be made with the Karen Walker Atelier via firstname.lastname@example.org.
