Marchesa - New York Fall 2009
(NEW YORK) "It's all about fantasies and fairytales!" said designer Georgina Chapman about Marchesa's fall collection. Actually, the season and the occasion to which the brand's dresses are to be worn may not matter; the creations of Chapman and Karen Craig are some of the most photogenic fabric spectacles around. For the fifth straight season, models stood in a stationary poses on the presentation floor--exactly how eager starlets pose on the red carpet. The selection of dresses was rich and consistent. Lilac chiffon, edgy black lace, scarlet organza, and sculpted jackets ruled the day. Marchesa has established itself as a singular category leader in American couture.
