Marchesa is an A-list designer favourite for the stunning red carpet gowns, just recently Sandra Bullock wore a stunning Marchesa gown to pick up her 2010 Oscar for Best Actress!
Elegant evening wear, inspired by vintage and Asian influences, defines the Marchesa Collection. The beautifully crafted designs fuse high fashion with an eclectic aesthetic. Co-founded by Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig, the company’s namesake and muse, Marchesa Luisa Casati, is the noted eccentric European style icon.
British born Georgina and Keren met at 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. 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 a business partnership and the establishment of Marchesa in 2004.
Based in New York, the Marchesa collection is presently available in Neiman Marcus and Bergdorf Goodman in the United States, Harrods in London, and specialty boutiques such as Holt Renfrew in Canada, Podium in Russia, Alothman in Kuwait, Boutique1 in Dubai, and Joyce and Lane Crawford in Hong Kong.
Marchesa is now the label of choice for celebrity and non-celebrity brides, the wedding collection is now available (see a small selection above).
