“When it comes to extravagant glamour and opulent fashion, Marchesa seems to always do it just right. For Spring 2013 — Georgina and Keren took to India for inspiration, mixing embroidered and jeweled hims with lace and dramatic brocade, they created something that was absolutely luxurious and, very much Bollywood inspired . . .” – from L&T“We really incorporated the idea of Indian silhouettes with ’60s silhouettes,” designer Georgina Chapman told before the show. “It’s really the mix of Indian culture and ’60s culture.”
The collection brought out vibrant colors, sari-like draping, detailed embroideries, and jeweled embellishments. There were slim pants with shirts, and sweeping dresses. 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.
