The Marvel That Is Marchesa

I am almost certain I've said this before but if I was able to have any designer in the whole wide world dress me for my wedding it would be Marchesa. Ahhh... simply AMAZING! Most of you may not be aware that Marchesa was started up by British born Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig, who met whilst studying at the Chelsea College of Art and Design in London. Georgina, a 2001 graduate of the Wimbledon School of Art, began her career as a costume designer while Keren graduated from Brighton Art College in 2000 and subsequently focused on print and embroidery design. Georgina’s draping and design expertise paired with Keren’s textile creations resulted in the establishment of Marchesa in 2004. Elegant eveningwear, inspired by vintage and Asian influences, defines the Marchesa Collection. The beautifully crafted designs fuse high fashion with an eclectic aesthetic. The company’s namesake and muse, Marchesa Luisa Casati, is the noted eccentric European style icon and all pieces are designed with her in mind. Visit www.marchesa.com to view the simply amazing collection. The below ready-to-wear pieces are from their New York spring/summer 2010 collection and and photos are courtesy of Vogue.com.au.
