Marchesa Spring 2013 Runway Review

Marchesa designers Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig gave their layers of chiffon, tulle, ruffles, and lace an Indian twist this season. This meant a lot more color than we're used to seeing and less volume, though it did allow for plenty of what the duo does immaculately: embroidery.

Embroidery accented the collars, bodices, and bottoms of nearly every look, many of which were fashioned into draped Indian-style wares like saris and ghagra choli. Brocade was also prevalent and tied into a running trend this season, as were jewel-encrusted tunic tops worn over cropped pants.
