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.

Beautifully draped short length dresses with Asian inspiration.
Applique work
Drapes are clearly inspired from Indian dhoti while the bejewelled top again is inspired from Indian bridal wear. Sexy!
White lace
White never looked this pretty. I want to write a lot about this particular outfit but again…. Its real hard to think of exact words to describe this one! Gracious…Elegant…Pretty.. and every other ‘super’ kinda stuff!
Sheer jumpsuits in lace.
Sexy black lace
White mullet dress seductively draped over the model, teamed with bejewelled accessories.
Gorgeous full length gowns.
This layered gown with coiled/gathered bodice explains the amazing construction skills of the designer.
Heights of intricacy!
Varying silhouettes
Breathtaking.. isn’t it? One collection where I’d use the word ‘awesome’ may be a hundred to describe!
