Marchesa SS11

Marchesa is American couture at its best. It wouldn’t be a stretch to say that at least 95 percent of the collection could have worked on the red carpet. Truthfully, this is no surprise – in fact, we have been seeing a lot of Marchesa on countless red carpets.

The collection was presented as a presentation with models standing still. Because so much goes in to each Marchesa collection, it is only right that press, buyers, and celebrity stylists get a chance to really analyze the amazing craftsmanship and execution. Everything from hand-painted florals and beaded necklines made this collection a complete and utter work of art – it is only appropriate that the collection be shown at the Chelsea Art Museum.

But couture is not the only trick in this collections impressive arsenal. Jumpsuits and short dresses take to the audience in a way that changes the way people think about ready to wear. Their organza and lacing techniques are absolutely astonishing. These women are commanders of their craft.
