I’m officially swooning over Marchesa. Being a personal fan of all things Marchesa (from namesake and ultimate style muse Marchesa Luisa Casati to the new Lavande nail polish from the recently launched Marchesa beauty collection Le Metier De Beaute) I was very excited to attend the presentation to see these stunning creations up close and personal. So many fabulous options to shoot for upcoming editorials, and personally I’ll please have one of each. And ladies, If your planning on attending a gala or two this season, or planning a wedding, take notes.
WHO: Marchesa Spring 2011
WHAT: Fabulousness at its best! The collection narrates an Orientalist inspired journey filled with hand painted silk drapes and ornate hand embroidered jeweled accents in a palette of smoked sky, opaque oyster, mint and rose blush. A myriad tale of gilded silk and lace (beyond!) that transforms embroidered silhouettes into an endless voyage of orientalist femininity and exoticism.
