An afternoon of catching up on all the latest SS/11 collections showcased by my favourite designers in Fashion Week, has secured me as an avid fan of all things Marchesa. There is only one word to describe 
the elegant evening-wear, inspired by vintage and Asian influences, which defines the Marchesa collection....astonishing, well and truly astonishing!  With a breathtaking mixture of delicate embroidery, sculptural drapes and hand painted florals, the collection consists of stunning evening and cocktail wear, which captures a strong 'midnight' feel, complimenting the firm theatrical edge, which each of these dresses exhibit. Organza, silk tulle and heavily bejeweled necklines are some of the ingredients which inject such drama into this beautiful, high rolling collection.
