It has been announced that we will be seeing Marchesa designer Georgina Chapman collaborating with Garrard, former Crown Jeweler and one of the oldest jewelry houses in the world.
“I’ve always had an interest in jewellery,” Georgina told WWD.
The two are beginning to bring their respective ideas together design process now, with plans to show their first collection during Spring 2010 New York Fashion Week. The collaboration with Georgina marks the first ever ‘guest designer’ at the house.
As Georgina told WWD, "Jewelry is so interesting because, like fashion, it has a history. People have long been ornamenting their bodies."
