Marchesa Fall 2017 - Runway Review
February 17, 2017
Packed with the brand's signature fluffy ruffles, feminine florals, intricate beading and layers of romantic tulle, some of the pieces shown in the Marchesa Fall 2017 show represented a departure for the brand—most notably with the colorful fringe and East Asian flower embroidery.
Drawing on the grand opulence of Imperial China, Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig captured “the glamour of Shanghai” via exquisitely detailed dresses and gowns made of velvet, Chantilly lace, marabou feathers and metallic gold fil coupe. This being Marchesa, there was no shortage of sensual romance nor embellishment.
An ankle-length tulle gown covered in 3-D feathered floral appliqués was breathtaking. Against a series of dramatic red and moody black gowns—including a black Chantilly lace column with a long skirt made from rainbow tassel fringe—details like oversized bows, flowers made of silk organza and ribbons featured on the lineup throughout.
