A little bit of history on my favourite designer:
“Marchesa” comes from the name of one of the most scandalous women in history: marquise Luisa Casati , whose eccentric personality marked the first three decades of the twentieth century. She was considered a dandy-woman, dressed by emblematic names in design, such as Paul Poiret and Erte. A well know figure in Paris night life, her appearances have impressed other strong personalities such as Coco Chanel , Elsa Schiaparelli and Picasso but also great names in cinema history.
Not to mention the founder, Georgina Chapman, is one of my fashion icons. She is STUNNING.
Marchesa has released its Resort 2012 collection. I’ve picked out my favourite pieces.
