Spirit – A Collection of Exquisitely Embellished Bridal Gowns from Anna Campbell
If you are a regular visitor to Chic Vintage Brides, then you probably saw the glamorous rustic wedding of Anna Campbell Rowlands, Founder and Creative Director of Australian bridal label Anna Campbell; and I have no doubt if you saw it you would have swooned over her 4 (yep you read that right, FOUR!) wedding dresses! Its fair to say their decadent embellishing caught my attention and so when the team at Anna Campbell also offered me the chance to share one of her latest collections, I jumped at it!
If you have never seen one before, there is something truly mesmerising about an Anna Campbell dress. Her silken designs, inspired by vintage romance, are simply dripping with decadent embellishments, intricately beaded laces, soft pretty tulles and floating silk chiffons.
The ‘Spirit’ collection was inspired by the idea that a brides’ spirit is what shines beyond anything else on their wedding day. “After all,” Anna explained “it is their spirit that someone has fallen in love with, and the collection was designed to celebrate the inner beauty of all our brides.”
With exciting new silhouettes and interchangeable skirts, it sees the designer’s distinctive style evolve, offering brides the opportunity to create their perfect dress. “In ‘Spirit’ we have a juxtaposition of the most beautifully form-fitted pieces with the fullest, floaty organza skirts and cascading silk tulle styles. There is truly something for every bride!” Anna says, and I couldn’t agree with her more!
Spirit dresses, like all Anna Campbell collections, are created from luxury, silk fabrics and hand-finished in Melbourne with stunning beadwork that is exclusive to the label. Designer Anna Campbell said silk was used without exception, as it is the only fabric of a high enough quality for a bridal dress.
“Silk is lightweight, breathable, it feels sexy on your skin. It’s an ancient product that is known for its beauty and for us there is no comparison.”
Aren’t they breathtaking? Absolutely gorgeous bridal gowns that with their ethereal and free-spirited feel, are perfect for today’s bride looking for that on trend boho-luxe look. Which one is your favourite? Mine would have to be the lovely lace Lilly! But no matter which you choose, slipping into one of these dresses on your wedding day you are guaranteed to feel timeless yet contemporary, sexy yet sweet, and truly beautiful.
