Marchesa is the red carpet brand par excellence, with a whole list of actresses and celebrities to have donned its luxury dresses for high-profile events. Designed by former model Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig, Marchesa was established in London after the duo met at University. Ten years on and they are coming back to the UK’s capital for the label’s birthday. The way they have chosen to celebrate? Marchesa will be showing its Spring/Summer 2015 collection at London Fashion Week, instead of New York Fashion Week as the label usually does.

Commenting on the decision, Georgina Chapman said "We felt it was a good way to celebrate our anniversary. It will be a different experience. All our English friends and family can get an opportunity to celebrate with us." There are no long term plans to settle in the UK, however, since Marchesa will return to its customary Fashion Week in New York for subsequent seasons.
Marchesa produce both a ready-to-wear and a couture line and are also known for their bridal wear and there are talks to expand further with a fine jewellery line. The one-off appearance of this US-based label on this side of the pond will undoubtedly inject an additonal dab of New York glamour to London Fashion Week.
