It’s no secret that I’m a HUGE fan of Marchesa. Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig make some of the most magical and magnificent dresses around. I recently visited their headquarters to see what their team are brewing for their spring/summer 2013 fashion show on Wednesday afternoon and these enormous inspiration boards greeted me.

A close inspection of the mood boards reveal India (and its rich history of colour, details and embellishment) as a huge reference point.

I thought it was so gracious and kind of Georgina to give me an intimate tour of their studio. She introduced me to her atelier staff, showed me how samples are made and gave me a preview of some of their gorgeous crystal and exotic skin clutch bags!

Georgina is one of the talented personalities Canon have chosen to direct films as part of their Project Imagination film festival. I can’t wait to see the film she directs for Canon and of course, I’m excited for Wednesday’s fashion show.
