Friday's Designers: Georgina Chapman & Keren Craig

British born Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig have built a fashion empire defined by elegant evening wear and one of a kind couture designs.

The duo met at Chelsea College of Art and Design in London. Georgina’s draping and design expertise paired with Keren’s textile creations resulted in a business partnership and the establishment of Marchesa in 2004.

With the extravagant and eccentric fashion icon and Italian heiress as their muse, Georgina and Kerens beautifully crafted runway collections and accessories line fuse exquisite detailing with supreme femininity.

In 2006, the label was named one of the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund’s top ten finalists. Spurred by its immediate success, the company already has a more casual and less expensive line, Notte by Marchesa, as well as a handbag and wedding dress line.

The Marchesa collections are presently available world- wide. Now with the launch of their premiere fragrance, there is a new and enticing way to experience the luxury of Marchesa.
