MARCHESA-SWEET DREAMS ARE MADE OF THESE-SPRING 2009
COCKTAIL AND RED CARPET RTW CONFECTIONS FOR LUCKY LADIES
CHELSEA ART MUSEUM, NYC September 10th, 2008
No surprise, Marchesa delivered an exceedingly stunning collection!
We haven’t quite figured out why the labels Marchesa and notte by Marchesa, designed by the model stunning (both-IMHO)Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig, continues to show their ultra GLAMOUR gowns at the Chelsea Art Museum.
We think the fluffy layers of tulle, silk chiffon embellished with complex ornamental embroideries, jet black beading on artfully draped white silk satin, and exacting details like just-picked cascades of blooming silk orchids delicately applied-
-begs for a bigger venue (the Met?) to allow the packed to scary capacity crowd more room in which to admire the high craftsmanship and THOUGHT- that is clearly, lovingly bestowed on each garment.
As usual, this was a presentation format with softly coiffed models atop white cubes, posing like sculptural entities.
Our favorite, and we suspect the choice of many gawkers/viewers (including quite a few celebs) is the lavender Grecian cocktail length dress composed of gently draped tulle swirls, that looked like bushels of sprouting flowers were sprung from two hip pockets.
But really,everything about this strong outing...deserves ALL of the accolades it receives. BRAVO!!!!
More Marchesa knockouts= Belles of the Ball.
