"British born Georgina[Chapman] and Keren[Craig] met at Chelsea College of Art and Design in London. Georgina, a 2001 graduate of the Wimbledon School of Art, began her career as a costume designer. Keren graduated from Brighton Art College in 2000 and subsequently focused on print and embroidery design. Georgina's draping and design expertise paired with Keren's textile creations resulted in a business partnership and the establishment of Marchesa in 2004.
Elegant eveningwear, inspired by vintage and Asian influences, defines the Marchesa Collection. The beautifully crafted designs fuse high fashion with an eclectic aesthetic. Co-founded by Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig, the company's namesake and muse, Marchesa Luisa Casati, is the noted eccentric European style icon.
Based in London and New York, the Marchesa collection is presently available in Neiman Marcus and Bergdorf Goodman in the United States, Selfridges in London, and specialty boutiques such as Holt Renfrew in Canada, Elegance 2000 in Russia, Vakko in Turkey, Joyce Boutique in Hong Kong, and Villa Moda in both Kuwait and Bahrain." - Marchesa.com.
