marchesa's spring gypsy princess.

Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig began their label Marchesa a decade ago on a little street in London, and what a long way they've come : from donning red-carpet A-listers with their ethereal gowns, to being in the wardrobes of many a princess around the world, they've become synonymous with their brand of exquisite and otherworldly glamour, and they have their well-heeled clientele to prove it. They've always been a fixture in the New York fashion scene, but this season the designers decided to celebrate their 10th anniversary homecoming in the banquet halls of Whitehall, a majestic location set none other than in the centre of all things British, London.

If you come to Britain, do it like the Brits. And so for Spring 2015 they did, taking however a different take on British royalty less modern and more '70s, less gilded and more Woodstock. A "rock-'n'-roll fantasia" as Tim Blanks called it, the collection was opened by Georgia May Jagger, looking every inch the flower-child as she sauntered down the runway in a flowy V-shaped tiered white tulle and lace number.  “She really embodies the spirit of the new collection,” said Chapman. “It’s a little bit gypsy, a little bit Woodstock and a little bit rock ’n’ roll.” As the show went on, it looked as if all the pieces were made for goddesses : there was the gypsy-hippie lass in her bohemian guipere gowns, the rock-chick in her lace trousers and crop top with hair tousled and eyes smoked to perfection, as well as the cultured romantic adorned with polished silhouettes of billowing organza sleeves and gold flower embroideries.

Though different, the muses all had this innate sense of wonder and femininity {as like their clients}, and the designers celebrated this with the finale looks : a fĂȘte of frocks dotted with dainty flowers and trailing vines, fringed with gold and black silk tiers, dipped in bright magenta details, and a grand climatic look of an ethereal flower queen : a picture of cascading powder blue tulle, bodice strewn with life-sized flowers and topped off with a lush pastel flower crown.

Marchesa's whimsical approach to spring couture truly indulged every girl's inner Cinderella {tomboy or not}, and while it'd be snapped up fast by silver screen starlets for awards season, we can at least dream, even for a moment, of being Marchesa's muse and wearing those gorgeous dresses, transported into a fantasia where fashion fairy tales really do come true.
