Marchesa designers Keren Craig and Georgina Chapman were inspired by the spirit of India in the 60s for their Spring 2013 collection.
With celebrities packing the front row at Grand Central Station on Wednesday afternoon, we were treated to a stunning array of what Marchesa do best: red-carpet dresses and gowns.
Heavily beaded dresses, flirty fringed frocks, delicately draped, sari-inspired gowns, tunics paired with Capri pants, and bejewelled cropped tops worn with pants or floating chiffon skirts proved to be a big hit with the front row and celebrity stylists.
Rich brocades were kept simple and embellishment free, chiffon dresses were tastefully trimmed with gold beaded details and silhouettes stayed true to the Bollywood theme whilst still feeling very modern and current.
Some of you may think some of the pieces are a tad OTT, but I envision them looking even more spectacular on the red carpet.
The colour palette of rich Bordeaux, eggplant and teal green did give the collection a fall-like feel, but with celebs snapping this collection up very soon, those piece would look great on the red carpet come October.
Chartreuse, white, gold coral, orange and pretty pinks made up the rest of the collection.
Gem Palace provided the opulent jewels, Marchesa beaded bags were presented alongside their signature quartz clutches and Christian Louboutin provided the footwear which ranged from flat and beaded to T-bar midi heels shimmering in gold.
This was a favourite presentation this fashion week. Even with three more rounds to go, I can’t see anyone topping this for me. Bring on awards season.
