The Story

REDUCED TO £500 FOR QUICK SALE (excluding postage)

I purchased this dress last year and had it shipped from Australia- Unfortunatly i will no longer be getting married and i am re selling it. Since i purchased it it hasn’t been worn and is still in immaculate condition. This is the original post from the seller i purchased from ;

“Beautiful Australian designer - Karen Willis Holmes - sequinned "Maria" gown, I wore this dress on 24th October 2015.

This dress was everything I hoped it would be and whilst I absolutely adore it, it would be a tragedy for such an exquisite gown to not be enjoyed again.

It received an overwhelming number of compliments, was perfectly suitable for a day and night occasion, photographs beautifully and was amazingly comfortable wear.

This stunning dress has a classic sweetheart strapless neckline and perfectly drapes the body extending into a fishtail train which flows as you walk down the isle. It comes with an embellished KWH sequin belt, as well as a matching bolero which have never been worn. The belt pictured is not for sale as I want to keep a little bit of memory from my wedding day.

The gown is in perfect condition and has been professionally dry cleaned. The dress was a size 12 but as I lost weight before the wedding i had to get it altered at Karen Willis Holmes to fit size 10 with DD bust. Due to the stretchy sequin fabric I think it would suit size 8 to 10. I am 164cm tall and wore flat open shoes on my wedding day as I didn't want to wear heels and have them digging into the grass all day. Straps could easily be added if you require extra support. It comes in a Karen Willis Holmes protective bag. The length of the top of the bust to the bottom of the front of the dress is 55inch, and the middle of the back to the middle of the bottom of the train is 68inch.

If you have any questions or would like further photos, please let me know. I felt amazing in this gown and I hope you do too. Happy dress shopping!”

Please let me know if you would like further photos of the dress or of the belt included :) I am devastated that i won’t get to wear this stunning dress but i want it to make someone’s else’s day perfect. I am happy to negotiate on price and if you would like to come and view the dress that can be arranged :) x
