A NEW CHAPTER FOR MARCHESA?

Thursday, January 11th, 2018
And the band played on … Marchesa co-founders, Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig, released look books of Pre-Fall 2018 collections from Marchesa and Marchesa Notte on Thursday.  Rather than allowing 2017’s scandal to dominate the runway, beautiful confections in lace, tulle, feathers, and embroidery seem to poetically rise from the ashes of a fashion house on-fire.
According WWD, Chapman and Craig have taken quiet approach to the collection, declining press press appointments.  Perhaps this is also why Marchesa was conspicuously absent from Sunday night’s Golden Globes red carpet, where A-Listers wore black gowns and pants from other female designers, such as Dior (Maria Grazia Chiuri), Stella McCartney, and Prada?
