At very regal St. Regis hotel, your Daily got a peek at the Marchesa Fall/Winter 2015 bridal collection last week. The looks were replete with a hefty dose of lace, a touch of sparkle, and many classic silhouettes, but there was also a naughty charm to the models’ tousled ‘dos, which were sprinkled with Baby’s Breath blooms. This risqué romance also took shape via shorter gowns and mix-and-match separates. The line’s designers, Keren Craig and Georgina Chapman, discussed their latest nuptial creations, flower power, and more!
Anything new happening in your latest collection?
Keren Craig: We looked a little bit at different hues. We’ve never done a champagne dress before! So we created a dress and a champagne cathedral veil to match.
Georgina Chapman: We also looked at different separates, like a skirt with a top or a different bustier. The idea is that our bride can go to her ceremony and be a little covered up, but then be a little bare for dancing later in the night. We’re really answering to different kinds of brides, and to having fun with a wedding dress.
Aside from champagne, what other colors might brides opt for?
Keren: We’ve done blushes before. We actually did made a smoky blue custom dress once!
What’s your favorite flower for a bridal bouquet?
Keren: That’s a hard one! I don’t think there’s ever one perfect flower. You need to consider what the occasion is, and what’s in season.
Georgina: At my wedding, I had a wall of Camellias. For my bouquet I had lily of the valley, which was my grandmother’s favorite flower!
