Marchesa Spring/Summer 2018 SS18

Marchesa Spring/Summer 2018 was glamorous, chic, sexy- form fitting dresses with plunging necklines and carefully placed strands of pearls left just the right amount to the imagination. Draped bodices oozed spring with cascading floral appliques and embroidery which flowed into the full skirts of tulle, chiffon, silk taffeta and charmeuse, and lace. Fringe and ostrich…

The 2016 Met Gala’s theme is Manus x Machina, and appropriately, Marchesa tweeted out a collaboration with IBM- and their “Cognitive Dress” in the early morning hours.

Marchesa Fall/Winter 2017

Seventies influences met with a western flair- layered contrasting colors and textures with knits, graphic tees, creepy faces photo prints, ascots, double breasted jackets, ski masks…there was a lot going on in the Vivienne Westwood Fall/Winter 2017 collection.

The Best of Resort 2016

Resort 2016 will allow you to express yourself in all of the fun trends.  We saw a lot of pastels, sheer meets opaque, cut outs, and prints- both bold and subtle.  Beautiful shirt dresses, a continuation of sleeveless outerwear and jackets, clear raincoats, and interesting silhouettes and proportions characterized the commonality of the collections. 70’s…

Oscars 2015 Best and Worst Dressed

Lupita Nyong’o wore a custom Calvin Klein Collection by Francisco Costa, made of metallic tulle and silk lamé encrusted in natural pearls of varying sizes.
