Amidst the smiles and laughter, there is a sense of breathless anticipation. As the moment draws nearer, every second is keenly felt, until you round that last corner, take a deep breath, and take those first steps down the aisle towards your forever after…
This sense of breathless anticipation, the enchanted excitement of walking down the aisle was the inspiration behind Anna Campbell’s 2017 collection, Ceremony. Channeling the emotion the designer felt at her own wedding held in January 2016, Ceremony reflects a coming of age, not just for Anna Campbell, but for her brand.
“The intensity of the emotion I felt walking down the aisle was overwhelming. I was inspired to create a collection that truly captures the essence of that moment: romantic and beautiful, fleeting but also timeless,” designer Anna Campbell said.
Needless to say the result, including exquisitely tailored bodices, sparkling embellishments and soft romantic lace, is what drew our eye to the Australian designer’s latest collection, which fuses Anna Campbell’s signature glamour with class and poise.
Though a simple elegance underlines the whole collection, each dress is individual in its beauty and detail. Geometric beading on the Vienna dress features alongside the romantic, floral motif of the Anna dress, which was designed as a tribute to Anna Campbell’s own wedding dress. The Ceremony collection also offers intricately beaded bodices, cinched at the waist to meet skirts of ethereal silk tulle, fitted lace or voluminous folds of organza, creating numerous styling options and price points for every bride.
An exciting addition to the collection is Anna Campbell’s first earring collection, which sees sparkling studs and pearl drops that match perfectly with her stunning gowns.
Ceremony marks an evolution of this much loved Australian brand and is a true celebration of the modern Anna Campbell bride: a woman who is strong, confident, individual and elegant all at once.
Anna Campbell’s dresses are designed and hand-finished in Melbourne and can be purchased online or found at stockists worldwide.
