The Marchesa Spring 2011 presentation took place today at the Chelsea Art Museum.

As usual I was in my element.

The collection narrates an Oriental journey filled with hand painted silk drapes and ornate hand embroidered jeweled accents.

The palette consisted of smoked sky, opaque oyster, mint and rose blush on silk, tulle, organza and laser cut silk crepe.

I marveled at the structured jeweled peplum’s with cinched in the models waists.

A blush pink strapless gown with the peplum and black embroidery was exquisite, much like the black and pearl ombre strapless tulle gown and the midnight blue strapless silk tulle dress with a floral print.

Other interesting details were the perforation which I’ve seen in a few presentation this week.

Feathers of course featured as they do in most Marchesa presentation.

The romantic allure of this collection was evident.

The tulle gown above was made for Anne Hathaway.
