NYFW: Marchesa

0Fairytale red carpet gowns are what Marchesa does best, and this AW’13 collection was no different… but then it was so much more.

Pieces of Note:
Theatrical folds and curves , embroidered and sassy. Red carpet-worthy gowns with ruffles, deep necklines, and trousers under ball gowns.
Style: From the theatrical to the piratical, billowing shirts added to the flowing, sassy nature of the whole show. It’s a confident and sparky collection.


“We took inspiration from a Goya painting from the late 1700s, titled ‘Portrait of Maria Teresa De Vallabriga on Horseback’… We took notes from Goya’s non-conventional approach to the traditional equestrian portrait, pairing deconstructed corsetry with tailored skirting and embroidered trousers. We played with the juxtaposition of light and dark hues and applied antique gold leaf embroidery and floral threadwork to add a softer, more feminine touch evocative of the Romantic period.” — Georgina Chapman, Marchesa
