Marchesa was founded in 2004 by Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig, who met at Chelsea College of Art and Design in London. Georgina was an expert in draping and designer, whereas Keren was more specialised in textile creation. Georgina always wears her own Marchesa dresses to red carpet engagements, which she is frequently invited to as she is now married to the American movie mogul Harvey Weinstein.
The Notte by Marchesa brand is famed for its eveningwear collections, which have strong Asian influence. The brand itself takes its name from the Italian socialite Marchesa Luisa Casati. The original brand, Marchesa, was so successful that a second line was added - Notte by Marchesa.
The Notte by Marchesa Collection is full of long and short dresses and gowns which may have strapless or one shoulder asymmetrical designs. Details include oversized bow corsages, bead and braid embellishment and ruffled hems. The floor length gowns are magnicent and perfect for any formal ball or black tie event.
Marchesa and Notte by Marchesa gowns and dresses are popular with celebrities, especially for red carpet events, and have been seen on Halle Berry, Eva Longoria, Amandy Bynes, Renee Zelwegger, Cate Blanchett and Fergie from the Black Eye Peas.
