Marchesa Spring 2011 Preview

It doesn't get more luxurious than Marchesa when it comes to evening wear. The label is named after eccentric Italian heiress Marchesa Luisa Casati, who considered herself a living work of art. The duo behind the label, Georgina Chapman and Karen Craig, met at the Chelsea College of Art and Design in London. They are famous for their theatrical/ costume inspired designs encompassing luxe fabrics, feathers and embellishment. Their celebrity clients include Jennifer Lopez, Blake Lively, Eva Longoria and many other A listers. As can be seen from the mood walls above, designers Chapman and Craig get inspiration from a variety of sources, most notably traditional dress from exotic countries such as China & India. You can see Marchesa's high attention to detail with the intricate beading on garments like the one above. The silhouette of the navy dress with the floral pattern is out of this world. I can't wait to see the completed collection!
