Sparkle, detail and drama! Marchesa's Spring 2012 collection was filled with floaty, frothy gowns that were inspired by Ilya Repin’s painting ‘Sadko’. Designer duo, Georgina Chapman and Keren Creig showcased a collection that was one of an underwater romantic fantasy.
Glamorous gowns of draped organza, layers of tulle and chiffon dripping with silk fringe, swept down the runway as if drifting by on soft waves of the ocean.
Heavily beaded and embroidered creations in a palette of mostly white, nude and black radiates with the sensation of Oscar nominees dazzling the red carpet.
This is the first time the designers have held a full scale runway show since their debut in 2007. If this was a return to the runway of sorts, no doubt this the way to do it!
