When it comes to womenswear, there is no denying that Marchesa is fit for royalty. In fact, the designers behind the high-end label, Keren Craig and Georgina Chapman, want their fashionable fans to feel like the Duchess of Cambridge when they put on one of their glamorous pieces. “We love Kate's style,” Georgina shared with HELLO!. “I think we like to think of every gown [for] someone to feel like they are her,” she added. Her co-founder Keren concurred saying, “You want to feel regal when you put on a beautiful gown.”
The designers, who are partnering with Stella Artois and Water.org for the “Buy A Lady A Drink” campaign to support the end of the global water crisis, are “big fans” of the royal mom-of-two and her late mother-in-law, Princess Diana. Georgina admitted: “I remember so clearly Princess Diana’s wedding and that just being such a monumental occasion in my childhood. I had the edition bookand as a kid I used to go through it and study the pages.” While the Duchess of Cambridge has yet to step out in a gown by Marchesa, Keren and Georgina exclaimed, “We would love to dress her.”
As for how they define a true princess gown, Georgina said: “I think it really is how a woman feels inside when she puts something on. I think if you feel good and you feel confident then you retain a certain aura that gives you that regal edge.”
The designers’ most recent collection, which drew inspiration from China, is sure to make any woman feel like royalty. Keren and Georgina showcased their breathtaking 2017 fall/winter collection during NYFW. The designers brought opulence to life with their colourful metallic embroideries, velvet bows and tulle creations.
