Founded in 2004 by British fashion designers Georgina Chapman (wife of Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein) and Keren Craig, the Marchesa label is a luxury brand inspired by the eccentric Italian socialite Marchesa Luisa Casati’s mantra of a person “being a living work of art”. Marchesa is best known for its red carpet worthy evening gowns, with their signature vintage meets Asian style that combines intricate details such as embroidery, beaded embellishments and prints. Among the stylish celebrity fans of the brand are Jennifer Lopez, Anne Hathaway, Sienna Miller and Eva Longoria. Recently, Marchesa launched Marchesa Notte a sister brand that offers affordable casual clothes.
