At Marchesa’s spring and summer 2018 runway show, embroidered gowns of gold jewels twinkled against the gallery while corsages made of pearls traced necklines. Both of these trends shed light on the overall theme in this collection. Accessorizing is effortless if half the work is already sewn on a garment. Tulle dresses, big bows, and 3D flowers were swept down the runway in tints of black and white. As more models walked out, the collection got more vibrant with soft pinks and lime green. Flowers were sewn onto many of these gowns to create pattern and texture.
Marchesa’s new collection was all evening gowns minus two pant suits. One was all black and the other was all white. This use of achromatic colors was exhibited on female models and contrasted against the rest of the show.
The 2018 collection exhibited that floral patterns and 3D adornments will blossom again next year. Marchesa is known for classy bridal dresses. The shapes and textures of those gowns are carried over into their much of their ready-to-wear and resort collections.

A staple article in this line would be the strapless ombre tulle dress. The color scheme starts in all black on the bust and slowly fades to silver and then white at the lettuce-hemmed skirt. A pair of white sandals with straps made out of flowers finished off the look. The footwear for the show was produced by Annelie Hofstrom. The strappy heels were produced in matching colors and decorated with flowers that matched the gowns.
Marchesa designers Georgia Chapman and Keren Craig took on NYFW as a team effort, producing 41 new looks for the spring and summer 2018 collection. Their 4 o’clock showing was the only one during this time, making their gallery a packed house. Marchesa’s floral ruffles and romantic gowns earned the attention of all NYFW attendees for their hour on Wednesday afternoon.
Last season the duo conveyed a Chinese influence, and this time around they didn’t stray too far as their new inspiration lies on the same continent in Japan. They had to take into consideration all elements of attire that could hone this 1920’s Japanese style. Buddhism, cherry blossoms, and snakes were turned into high fashion trends for their runway show. This season’s built-in jewelry trimmed the neckline of some dresses, recreating a hit from their Fall 2016 line. It’s refreshing when designers take inspiration from their previous work. It shows that no matter how deep they immerse themselves in the fashion realm, they’re still staying true to where they come from.
Founded in London back in 2004, the Marchesa labels stemmed from several dresses made by Georgia Chapman. Keren Craig joined and the duo began sewing hems onto dresses and pinning flowers onto garments. Their inspiration for the past couple of years has been rooted in the Far East, where blush pink flowers and cherry blossoms can be found almost everywhere. Jeweled clothing references ancient Asian empires. Marchesa’s color pallet consists of black, white, lime, gold, and pink.
