ROUGH CUT (NO NARRATION) Marchesa designers Keren Craig and Georgina Chapman showed a colorful Fall 2014 collection inspired by bonfires of their native Great Britain. Presented at an off-site venue of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week (MBFW) in New York, the design duo known for their luxurious gowns adored by A-list celebrities showcased a collection that took its cues from the Scottish Highlands. The Scottish reference continued in the form of deconstructed kilt dresses in silk chiffon and accessories - embellished clutches that were a riff on the sporran, a pouch that performs the same function as a pocket on the pocket-less kilts. Cocktail dresses in tartan lace and hand draped silk -- signature Marchesa looks -- were embellished with ostrich feather fringes and tulle wraps. With one look, a gray fox fur sweater paired with a feather and appliqué tulle skirt the pair showed how to be red carpet fabulous while looking warm and comfortable at the same time. A Marchesa show is not complete without the signature ball gowns that the duo reserved for the very last. A gold hand draped silk gown with floral embroidery, the finale gown of the show, looked simple yet regal and is sure to be seen soon at the Oscars, or another red carpet event. While their dresses are a darling with movie stars and models, Chapman said that she is designing with the average woman in mind.
