Marchesa Spring 2012 RTW

As usual the Marchesa Spring 2012 RTW collection was like a fairy tale; and this time the fairy tale was the Little Mermaid.  The collection which was inspired by the painting Underwater Kingdom, by the Russian artist Ilya Repin.  The inspiration is clear in the pale blue, lilac and grey gowns that are made of fabrics as light as sea foam.  While I always love Marchesa's collection, it was a breath of fresh air to see a runway show versus their traditional showing of models on pedestals.  I felt that the movement really showed how beautiful the fabric of the gowns were.  The collection was much simpler than usual but just as stunning as one would expect.


  1. I've always adored the Marchesa line! If this is just a sample of the collection, they have another WINNER! Very soft and love the designs. I agree with your evaluation JD. :)

  2. Totally agree with you about the runway! Although I think because their clothes are so detailed, having the models in one place would let the people at the show appreciate the details more. But these dresses were made to move! They look so gorgeous. I wonder who will wear one of them at the Emmys this weekend?
