Couture fashion is truly an art form and nobody understood that better than Marchesa at this years' recent New York Fashion Week. Featuring a variety of cocktail dresses and evening gowns, each creation was done in frothy fabrics, sheer lace and gauzy silks. Expert draping and intricate cut-outs were at once elegant and edgy and showed the true genius behind Marchesa designs.Extremely feminine, elaborate designs were featured in a soft palette of creams and whites with hints of faded jade and anchored with black and punches of purple and blue. Each piece was a uniquely creative look with jaw dropping, lust-inducing details with strapless minis and floor-sweeping gowns alike each more breath taking than the last. Differing in design with short hemlines, overwhelming ruffles and tiers and peek-a-boo lace jumpsuits, all pieces were individual but a cohesive collection in direction and beauty and head-turning awe.
