Marchesa

I’m a bit obsessed with Marchesa at the moment, especially when I saw Sofia Vergara and Heidi Klum wearing two of their designs to the Oscars. So, this is literally just a picture based post dedicated to some of their designs that I adore with a little information about the brand. I’ll make it clear now, all the photos are from the Vogue website as they have the best storage of designers’ collections.

Marchesa
Founded in: 2004
Founded by: Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig
It is a British brand and the two founders met at Chelsea College of Art and Design in London. Keren handles the majority of the textiles designs whilst Georgina focuses on the draping and the cut of the pieces. You’ll notice from the pictures below, how beautiful well these two people come together to create elegant pieces.
Georgina Chapman’s name seemed quite familiar to me so, I looked her up and found out why. She appeared in an episode of Gossip Girl as herself, which is probably why her name rings a bell. Her father is a multi millionaire business man whilst her mother is a journalist (whoop whoop). She’s modelled for Head & Shoulders and has starred in some tv shows and films. She’s apparently worth £15 million (thanks daddy?) 
Ok, ok, after thinking her name rings a bell, I also looked at her photos and now I know where I know her from, and it’s not just Gossip Girl. I remember looking at all the Oscars photos from this year and seeing an odd couple. “Harvey Weinstein and Georgina Chapman. Who the f*ck is that? I haven’t seen him before. She’s stunning though. I bet you she’s with him for his money. She looks like she’s 20 years younger than him.” I feel bad now. She’s actually approaching her 40s, but I was right, she IS 20 years younger than him. He’s a film producer but I don’t see why she would need to marry him for money when she’s worth a lot herself and her father is a millionaire. I judged them simply on looks so I apologise and hope she’s happily married.
Moving on…the brand is named after socialite and muse Marchesa Lusia Casati who famously said “I want to be a living work of art.” The brand now has a ready-to-wear line, handbag collection, bridal wear and is launching a dinnerware collection with Lenox. You can find them at most high end department stores.

I could’ve continued to show you guys more from their collections but I started to get a bit tired and the quality of the photos on Vogue started to decrease as the collections got older.
