Marchesa Ready-To-Wear Spring/Summer 2011, New York Fashion Week
The best of New York Fashion week so far. Marchesa’s SS 2011 collection is probably everyone’s favourite this season. Luxurious gowns in hand-painted tulle and chiffon, lace, beaded embellishments and more lace! Every fashion loving soul in twitter and other fashion blogs are talking about this award winning designer Georgina Chapman and her business partner Keren Craig’s collection. Models looked stunning in jaw-dropping luxury. No wonder, you’ll come across many of these in red carpet events very soon.
The first look was an hand-painted ombre princess gown in layered tulle. A visual treat! It was followed by a mini dress with ruffled shoulders and intricately cut patterns.
The collection was orientalist inspired with elaborate drapes, folds, hand-painted florals and bejewelled necklines. The colour palette was mostly light in pale coral, ivory, beige and mint.
Some thing unexpected was the sheer harem pant jumpsuits in lace teamed with bolero jackets amidst the floor sweeping gowns and draped dresses.
