Channelling a darkly feminine vibe, Willow & Co.’s latest editorial, Dark Decadence portrays equal parts romance and mystique.

Styled by the ever talented Orla Molloy of Elevate Styling and set against a regal manor backdrop and its tangled gardens, the shoot showcases opulent gowns from a range of designers including Moira Hughes Couture, Con Ilio and White Runway. Featuring intricate beading and embroidery, luxe silks and feathers, the gowns are a dramatic display of femininity and strength, while the roses by Merci Bouquet are a lush mix of violet, magenta cream and white.

Sonia Allen lent her hair and makeup artistry, crafting glossy waves and a pared back, bronze smoky eye – after all, with gowns this decadent, subtlety is key.
