Marchesa Spring Summer 2013 Dinner

15/09/2012, Events, Fashion and Style, Marchesa, Models

To celebrate the spring/summer 2013 Marchesa collection, a lovely and intimate dinner was held at The Darby a few nights ago. I’ll be honest — I don’t usually bring my camera to night time events because: 1) it’s very heavy, 2) my flash photography skills are subpar and 3) I’m still traumatized because a couple of years ago, a random PR assistant mistakenly thought I was a photographer and forcefully asked me to take photos of a celebrity I had no idea about. I made an exception this time because the generous folks at Canon gave me a new toy — the new Canon 5D Mark 3. And boy, I’ll be honest, I’ve never been so excited to use it wherever I go. I’ve been playing around with it like mad… it’s totally different from my trusty 5D Mark 2. Am I glad I brought my camera? Hell yes! I met THE iconic Carolyn Murphy at the sit down dinner. Natalie, Leandra and Jessica Stam were my tablemates. Fun times all around!

Jessica Stam’s Marchesa Spring 2013 Fitting

13/09/2012, Fashion and Style, Marchesa, Models, Spring Summer 2013

A fashion designer is judged based on their work and the looks they present at a fashion show. Y’all know how it goes — models sashay down the runway donning the latest looks while photographers shoot images for the rest of the world to see. Here’s Jessica Stam wearing a one of my favourite looks from the spring/summer 2013 Marchesa collection — a gorgeous white fringed dress.

Sneak Peek at Marchesa

11/09/2012, Christian Louboutin, Fashion and Style, Marchesa

Before yesterday afternoon’s 3.1 Phillip Lim show, I popped by the Marchesa studio for another preview of the collection. The lovely Jessica Stam, who I last saw in Beijing earlier this year, was there for her fitting. She tried on a short, white fringed dress with intricate beaded panels on her chest all the way up to her neck. She looked stunning. I wish I could share you images of the looks but I don’t want to spoil the suspense for everyone!

All Aboard Marchesa Express

10/09/2012, Accessories, Fashion and Style, Marchesa, Spring Summer 2013

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.
