How do you feel about sparkle? Pearlescent shimmer and sparkling glass beads? When I hear my brides are hunting for some sparkle and glimmer for their wedding dresses, Anna Campbell immediately makes my “must-shop” list.
Year after year, the talented Australian dress designer creates iconic sparkling gowns that always find their way to our top dress lists. Wanderlust, Anna Campbell’s latest collection, continues that streak, providing so much glitz and glamour we can hardly choose a favorite. Using luxurious tulles, unique laces, lust-worthy silks, and thousands of hand-sewn sequins, sparkling glass beads, and pearls, the gowns shimmer with opulence.
The collection provides sparkle for free-spirited brides looking for various silhouettes and styles. Are you searching for a sleek silk gown with extra bridal detail? You’ll love the Eva Dress – a modern, minimalist silk gown of Crepe de Chine made glam with a sparkling tulle faux-cape, draped sleeve. Love lace and beading? Pair the romantic Kira Dress (with stunning custom lace!) with Pia – stunning, beaded back loops emphasizing that dazzling low back. Looking for total glitz and glamour? Wanda (designed with extra love for Anna’s own best friend) will send you shimmering into the night.
Once you’ve found your dream gown, the sparkle doesn’t end. Rather than that endless search for the “right” jewels that mesh with your dream gown, you can style your look entirely with Anna Campbell accessories. Find beaded headpieces evoking 1920s glamour, sparkling pearl and tasseled earrings, and trend-setting arm cuffs that have opened our eyes to the new world of bridal bracelets.
As with all Anna Campbell collections, each dress is individually hand cut and sewn in Melbourne, Australia, with the option to customize to suit each bride’s fit and style: think luxury fabric skirt options, added draped or capped sleeves, or additional custom embellishments for a little (or a lot!) of extra sparkle.
The Wanderlust collection is priced from USD 1920 and is now available at the Anna Campbell Melbourne boutique, Australian and international stockists, or the Anna Campbell e-boutique. Want to try on the whole collection? Starting in late July (first at super stylish Lovely Bride in NYC), Anna Campbell will be holding several USA trunk shows, with most retailers offering a special 10% off trunk show dress and accessory orders placed during those events (score!)
From Anna Campbell
The go-to bridal designer for romantic sparkle and romance, Anna Campbell, has launched its annual collection today. Named Wanderlust, the campaign for the dreamy 13-piece collection was fittingly photographed in free-spirited Byron Bay on the New South Wales coast.
For the modern bohemian bride, Wanderlust features exclusive embroidered fabrics, floating silks, custom-designed laces, sexy new silhouettes, and mesmerizing hand-beaded embellishments. Collection highlights include jaw-dropping open backs with shimmering details and unique hand-drawn embellishments, such as the 3D floral applique of the Paige Dress, made from raw cut ribbon and silk organza, with sparkling glass beads and ivory pearlescent shimmer.
Brides looking for the ultimate bridal statement will be drawn to the decadent Wanda Dress, a dress first designed by Anna for one of her closest friends. Created from a tulle fabric luxuriously hand-beaded with thousands of hand-sewn sequins, sparkling glass beads, and pearls, the Wanda brings glamorous all-over sparkle with the option for brides to choose a draped sleeve for extra drama and coverage.
