Friday I’m in Love… Marchesa Fall 2012

Marchesa 2012 gowns

British designers Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig of Marchesa, consistently create the most gorgeous and feminine, yet bold dresses and wedding gowns of any designer out there. I just love their aesthetic and their Fall Ready to Wear 2012 collection is no exception. Inspired by “late-nineteenth-century French painter William-Adolphe Bouguereau’s A Soul Brought to Heaven, which depicts two angels spiriting a young woman through the clouds” to quote’s Meenal Mistry, the gowns in the collection seemed to be conflicting good vs evil or dark vs light with wings, feathers, floral embellishments and intricate embroidery that resembles a skeletal-like structure. The cut-out features are exquisite as are the boots and shoes to match.

I’ve chosen only to feature a few gowns from the lighter side of the collection, and the shorter lengths, mostly because I preferred them, {I adore the drop waist and long ruffle} but could you imagine the gorgeous red dress above in a white or rich ivory for a wedding gown? It’s just breath-takinglgy beautiful, not to mention, one of a kind. Oh Friday, I’m in love!

* On a side note, is Georgina Chapman just the most beautiful woman you have ever seen? When I see her on Project Runway All Stars, I find myself staring at her, jaw-dropped, in awe. Speaking of Project Runway, who do you want to win? I’m sort of in love with Mondo but I always want to wear Michael’s designs so I’m torn. I can’t wait to see their mini collections next week!

    I could totally see you in #2. And yes, I feel the same for Georgina. When she came in the workroom with that white tunic, she looked so fresh. I’m always puzzled when I see her with her husband but…he’s a lucky man.
    Her designs are incredible!
    And I love Mondo (though not his diva moments) and would wear everything he designs!

    I just learned that Chapman is married to Harvey Weinstein– talk about a power couple.

    I think we need a DIY for those amazing shoea. I have a piece of gold lame lambskin that may have to be used for the cause.

    Agree with u on Georgina. Gorg. I want Michael to win. They treated him so bad when he was on PR.

    I always think if I could afford couture, it would be Marchesa all the way. Georgina’s a beautiful woman and she designs clothing that makes a woman look beautiful. So much Marchesa love. And while I love Mondo’s looks, I want to WEAR Michael’s looks. Also torn.
