Marchesa - FW Highlights...

New York. Marchesa. There is lace, there is draped organza and french chiffon abound, and most of all there are feathers. I am reeling; how did I miss this?! Granted I was on a jaunt to Croatia for the weekend but this AW10 collection has instantly made it into my top top all time faves. Its just, so, beautiful. Insanely intricate detailing and the most delicately scultped of fabrics that I couldn't even begin to fathom how they were constructed. Inspired by the performer Lola Montez, Marchesa has engulfed the models in fairytale tulle ruffles, shooting star embroidery and circus style tailoring to within an inch of their lives, and I am ever so thankful.
