Summary: There are truly no words to describe the presentation that was Marchesa. Held at the Chelsea Art Museum, 25 models stood tall on glossy, white cubes as if live works of art. Marchesa designers Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig brought what they consider to be, a "touch" of enchantment to a collection full of misty colors and airy textiles. It wasn't so much a "touch" but rather a mound full of it, and thank goodness for that. One vignette after another, each piece outshone the last. Gowns were filled with layers of tulle and silk chiffon ruffles in shades of smokey lavender, scarlet and hazy gray. In relation to the fanciful, whimsy mood that filled the room, details such as delicate lace, dreamy sequins and shooting stars embroidery cascaded beautifully throughout various pieces. The presentation concluded with stunning sculptural dresses draped in tulle overlay; a perfect ending to any fairy tale. If this is what Cinderella's closet looks like in real life, someone find me my fairy godmother.
