Designer Spotlight: Essense of Australia

Here at Dearly, we are BIG fans of the designer, Essense of Australia . . . and for good reason! These gowns are STUNNING! Essense of Australia is known for the high quality materials they use, the superb fit of their gowns and the immense attention to detail that is showcased in each of their gowns.


Essense of Australia is inspired by the natural beauty and romantic spirit found among the grandeur of Western Australia, home of Chief Creative Officer, Martine Harris. By combining elegant fabrics and intricate beading, these gowns are designed for women who seek unique, runway-worthy gowns but appreciate the tradition and romance of a classic wedding day.

So without further ado, here are four Essense of Australia gowns that we are CRUSHING on this season!



Elizabeth (Gown D2548)



This layered lace wedding dress is SO dreamy! This gown combines sheet lace, tulle and beautiful lace appliqués for a stunning, layered look. This gown has an ultra-flattering silhouette, hitting in all the right places. Sheer cutouts adorn the sides of the gown and extend into an open back, for the perfect hourglass figure (insert fire emoji here)! The high illusion neckline is adorned with organic-lace appliqués, which perfectly complement the plunging v-neckline of the bodice. The plunge itself is very tasteful, giving you the illusion of a sexy, deep-v without showing too much. Delicate beading is placed strategically throughout the bodice to add a touch of sparkle and dimension to this gown. The tulle skirt adds a touch of softness and we are completely obsessed with how the lace appliqués continue down into the skirt and just look at that trim around the edges!! I mean, what’s not to love?!



Hannah (Gown D2846)



This vintage-inspired lace gown is incredible! If you are a fashion forward bride looking for a gown with some old-world charm, this is the gown for you. A stunning A-line silhouette this gown is as flattering as it is gorgeous. The sheer, lace bodice transitions into the ivory tulle skirt right at the natural waist. Thick, floral appliqués adorn the slightly sheer bodice and long sleeves. The plunging v-neckline allows for a bit of cleavage and is balanced out by the full coverage of the long sleeves. The soft tulle layer atop the chiffon skirt features more cascading lace over the waistline and delicately placed throughout before becoming more concentrated at the hem. The skirt then flows out into a frothy train to complete this soft and romantic bridal look.



Eleanor (Gown D2603)



This romantic ballgown is fit for a modern-day princess!! We are head over heels for this gorgeous gown, I mean, where do we even begin? Organic lace detailing trims the neckline, which extends slightly off the shoulder for a beautiful cap sleeve. The layered lace carries throughout the sleeves and bodice, which creates a unique 3D effect, adding texture to this gorgeous gown. The lace from the bodice continues down into the full skirt and is intentionally placed throughout, creating the perfect balance of lace and negative space. This gown has an entire layer of sequined tulle, which will create a beautiful twinkling effect with your every move. The lace appliqués become more concentrated around the bottom of the gown, creating the perfect hem! A wide V-back gives the illusion of a completely open back and has beautiful crystal buttons to cover the zip up detail in the back. Oh and did we mention that this gown is a dreamy moscato color? Yeah, we’re pretty freaking obsessed!



Erika (Gown D2920)



OKAY, but this fitted gown is INCREDIBLE! This combination of organza, mikado and sparkling lace has our jaws on the floor. Although strapless in design, the bodice is constructed with so much boning to provide structure that you can rely on all night long. Trust us when we say, the bodice of this gown won’t be budging as you and your boo are getting down on the dance floor. The bodice has a modified sweetheart neckline with a super deep plunge that adds the perfect touch of sexy. Lace appliqués extend though the waist and onto the multi-layered tulle skirt, which is lined with horsehair trim to maintain the structure. The back zips up beneath fabric-covered buttons and finishes in a gorgeous train. If you’re looking for a traditional silhouette with a modern twist, this gown is for you!!
