Marchesa - the story with the shimmer of a fairy tale

A few years ago Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig were sitting on their haunches in Ms. Chapman’s London flat, pinning hems and poring over sketches for Marchesa, their fledgling fashion line.

Within a year, and with no fashion credentials to boast of, Ms. Chapman and Ms. Craig had decamped for Hollywood, where they were stunned, they say, to see their extravagantly sparkly evening dresses enhancing the contours of Cate Blanchett, Scarlett Johansson, Felicity Huffman, Anne Hathaway and Penélope Cruz.



British born Georgina and Keren met at Chelsea College of Art and Design in London. Georgina, a 2001 graduate of the Wimbledon School of Art, began her career as a costume designer. Keren graduated from Brighton Art College in 2000 and subsequently focused on print and embroidery design. Georgina’s draping and design expertise paired with Keren’s textile creations resulted in a business partnership and the establishment of Marchesa in 2004.

Elegant eveningwear, inspired by vintage and Asian influences, defines the Marchesa Collections. The beautifully crafted designs fuse high fashion with an eclectic aesthetic. Co-founded by Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig, the company’s namesake and muse, Marchesa Luisa Casati, is the noted eccentric European style icon.

If you are looking for inspiration for the Christmas Party or the New Year's Eve, Marchesa can be a very good place to look for ideas.
