Marchesa - Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Spring 2008
(NEW YORK) Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig didn’t disappoint their glamorous customer base and sent out a sophisticated and ornate spring collection of red-carpet-worthy dresses and cocktail pieces. The inspiration was Victorian England, evident in the floor-length column dresses and romantic lace details, and the British Raj. The Indian influences included gold beading, embroideries, and gilded peacock feathers which dramatically adorned a strapless black dress. The designers continued to use black and white silk tulle and chiffon layers, but the Indian influences provided a more ornate look. The standout was a floor-sweeping bright orange dress with cut-out back and gold embroidery. A black and white, off-the-shoulder column dress was a more ethereal red-carpet option, perhaps to be seen on the likes of Naomi Watts, who was in the show’s audience. But the designers also showed a few pieces that, while still luxurious and feminine, provided a more casual alternative to their evening gowns, such as romantic tops over pleat-front pants, a black lace coat, and short embroidered dresses, including two exquisite cocktail dresses in green and pink, hand-encrusted with small mirrors.
